A broken heart, for whatever reason, is the worst feeling. But thankfully that's not what we're talking about here, even though we're about to talk about the new collab from Vault by Vans x BEDWIN & THE HEARTBREAKERS. The new collection celebrates the vibes of summer love, which is as carefree as we can imagine.
Vault by Vans brings fashion, art and music together to offer a diverse range of exclusive, high-quality collections featuring the brand's most iconic silhouettes. Each season, the brand presents collaborative projects with partners from the heart of the cultural scene and then offers the pieces exclusively in selected shops.
BEDWIN & THE HEARTBREAKERS
The supposed heartbreakers are a Japanese label founded by Masafumi "Bebetan" Watanabe in Tokyo in Autumn/Winter 2004. Their fashion is a mix of pop and indie, formal wear and streetwear, ranging up to three-piece ensembles. In the process, Bedwin is based on simple American tradition, reconstructed in the details from experience. The hot clean with individual style, elegant with a touch of casual.
Every season, BEDWIN & THE HEARTBREAKERS show their worldview through simple designs inspired by songs and albums. These in turn become the theme of their collections.
The latest collaboration with Vault by Vans features new versions of the Authentic and Old Skool silhouettes. Continuing the label's Americana and West Coast influence, the collection is heavily inspired by traditional textiles. Of course, the vintage bandanas made in the USA are also eye-catching.

Traditional American menswear from the 80s and 90s inspires the designs, which convince with a bold paisley print. This runs through the entire collection: sneakers, T-shirts, hoodies and buckethats all bear the American-made bandanas.
Others feature contrasting colours, such as the red ribbon found on the bottom of the shoe. In addition, the combination of paisley prints surprises in an unexpected way. The different stitching that connects the bandana prints once again underlines the craftsmanship of the designs and guarantees that no two pairs are identical.

For the Old Skool, BEDWIN & THE HEARTBREAKERS and Vault by Vans have paid tribute to the silhouette's history as the first shoe to feature the signature side stripe. To do so, they mixed rich blue canvas and suede, which serves as the base for the bandana detailing on the tongue, sidestripe and medial panel. The bandana influence then continues across a range of garments and accessories.
Both Vault by Vans and BEDWIN & THE HEARTBREAKERS follow a dedication to detail in their creations. This is sure to appeal to fans of the Japanese streetwear label and the Californian footwear brand, and patchwork looks like this are currently very popular beyond that.
The collab will be released at selected retailers on Saturday, 24 July 2021 at 00:00. Well, do you want to get your kicks?
