The Vans Vault x Joe Freshgoods 'Chocolate Valley Resort' collection just makes you want to take a Winter break. The new collab focuses on the fictional 'Chocolate Valley Resort', which is inspired by the youth of designer Freshgoods.
"Chocolate Valley Resort is inspired by my love for travel and research. For this collection I wanted to create something that aligns with the rich history of Vault by Vans, but from a new perspective. Chocolate Valley Resort marries the history of Black travel and leisure with winter-ready pieces that blend playfulness and functionality."Freshgoods
As always, Joe Freshgoods brings his signature colour palette to his work with Vans, as the sneakers and apparel come in shades of pink and orange. Kicks from the collection include two colorways of the Vans Sk8-Hi Reissue Platform VLT LX in 'Coral Almond' and 'Camel'.
The Vans Slip-Hiker LX, which was unveiled back in December, will be available in three colorways, all featuring a quilted nylon upper and a weather-resistant MTE outsole.
The collection is completed by a Chocolate Valley Resort Puffer in 'Soft Buttercream' and a faux mohair cardigan with jacquard stripes in Coral. Other pieces straight from the Valley include a classic T-shirt, a ski mask, cargo pants and more.
The Vans Vault x Joe Freshgoods 'Chocolate Valley Resort' collection will be released on Saturday, 21 January 2022 at Joe Freshgoods, Vans and other retailers.
