Since 1875, Liberty Art Fabrics has remained dedicated to pushing the envelope of printed material design from London to fashion hubs across the world. That dedication combined with its rich history connected Vans with this legendary company for a collaboration that stays true to each brands tradition of high quality and premium style. To kick-off the new partnership, Vans and Liberty launch a collection for fall showcasing six Liberty Art Fabrics on two heritage Vans styles, the Era and Authentic.
Liberty is famously known for their archives of countless floral fabrics. Vans' designers had the opportunity to tap into prints that aren't always seen, creating a rare and limited edition collection that brings light to special Liberty prints. You'll find two paisley options covering the Era and the Authentic inspired by an original Liberty scarf. The paisleys were cut straight from the stock fabric which varied the placement of the pattern to create shoes that are one-of-a-kind. An abstract, printed mountain landscape in army green is featured on the Era while the Authentic features a rich pink leaves print and a colorful pattern of floral and birds. The final style of the collection gets a special treatment that is unique to Vans. A classic Liberty floral is combined with Vans’ iconic checkerboard in a deep navy that pops the red and blue Liberty print.
Vans x Liberty Art Fabrics retails for $60 and arrives this month globally at Vans retail locations, at vans.com/liberty and the one and only Liberty of London on Regent Street.
