Brooklyn-based artist and materials brand Krink is releasing a new collection in collaboration with Vault by Vans. In addition to new colorways for the Authentic VLT LX and Old Skool VLT LX, the collab has also designed clothing. The entire collection will be released on Friday March 25, 2022 at selected Vault by Vans retailers.
Krink was the first ink and paint brand for graffiti artists. It has since grown into an international artist brand with ever-growing collections of clothing, tools and accessories. The founder of the brand is Craig Costello, who used to spray graffiti, listen to hip hop and enjoy skateboarding when he was younger.
These aspects have been brought back in the collection. The collection consists of three sneakers and three garments that reflect the history of Krink and the daily life of graffiti artists.
The Authentic VLT LX, comes out in the brand's signature silver. The sneaker has a padded ballistic nylon upper, a grey outsole, silver-coloured metal lacing eyelets and a reflective 3M pull tab at the heel.
The Old Skool VLT LX will be available in a blue and black colorway. These models feature the Krink New York City logo on the side panel. These are inspired by the stickers that stick to any surface. In addition, the Old Skool's side stripe and pull loop are made of reflective 3M material.
