Here\u2019s something you wouldn\u2019t have expected from a skate brand. Vans is about to release Vincent Van Gogh themed apparel. Collaborating with the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, this artfully-inspired collection sees several of Van Gogh\u2019s masterpieces printed across Vans sneakers and premium silhouettes.\r\n\r\nWe\u2019re talking Van Gogh\u2019s art displayed on classic slip-ons, Sk8 hi-tops, long sleeve tees, hoodies and a hat. Each silhouette will include subtle details of the artist\u2019s handwriting and brush strokes hidden in a reimagined checkerboard print. The collection arrives August 3, with a portion of profits going towards the preservation of Vincent van Gogh\u2019s legacy and collection of art; keeping it accessible for future generations.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\u201cWe are delighted with the Vans x Van Gogh Museum collection, as it ties in with our mission to make the life and work of Vincent van Gogh accessible to as many people as possible,\u201d said Adriaan D\u00f6nszelmann, Managing Director of the Van Gogh Museum. \u201cBy uniting Van Gogh\u2019s iconic artworks with iconic Vans styles, our partnership brings Vincent\u2019s art \u201cOff The Wall\u201d and into the world to a new audience outside the museum.\u201d\r\n\r\nVincent Van Gogh is arguably one of the most famous and influential post-impressionist painters in the history of western art. His work is recognised for its beauty, emotion and colour, bringing his expression to life through art. With over 2,100 pieces of artwork produced from his decade-long career, Vans worked closely with the Van Gogh Museum to select four main bodies of work that speaks to the creative ethos of Vans as well as personal moments from the artist familial history. Skull, Almond Blossom, Sunflowers and Van Gogh\u2019s self-portrait are celebrated through this extensive clothing collection.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nEach piece from the collection will also include a special hangtag that highlights historical facts behind each piece of Vincent Van Gogh\u2019s art.\r\n\r\nIt\u2019s an interesting collection, to say the least. I think it should have been named the Vincent \u2018Vans\u2019 Gogh Collection. Everyone loves a good play on words.
