Kenzo to Debut Collaboration With Vans
>> Kenzo creative directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon have created a line of shoes for Vans that will be released this Summer.
The unisex shoes, priced around $130, will be sold in three staggered releases at Kenzo and Opening Ceremony stores — one in May, one in June, and one in July. The first edition fuses the red, blue, and green prints from Kenzo's Spring 2012 collection with the design for the Vans Era, a classic lace-up skate shoe.
Lim and Leon, the team behind Opening Ceremony, told Vogue UK that they've worn Vans for years and "liked the idea of infusing this bit of American style into the house of Kenzo."
