For spring, London based designer Ashley Williams has merged for Vans Classics styles with her latest collection to create a line of footwear featuring the graphic prints and custom logos. Williams was tasked with reinterpreting four of Vans most recognisable shoes from the Classics line, the Era, the Authentic, Vans Style 93 and the Classic Slip on.
The Era is reborn with a custom take on the iconic Vans checkerboard printed as a tape along the sidewalls of the shoe, mimicking a heritage Vans graphic print from the brand’s archive.
Vans’ original deck shoe, the Authentic is given a rebellious update with piercing details at the toe and heel, and is finished with a custom ‘A’ emblem on the top eyelet and Vans x Ashley Williams laces.
The Vans Style 93 has been dipped in tiger print for the collection, with the metal ‘A’ eyelet detail and buckle.
Finally, the most iconic of all, the Vans Classic Slip On has been redesigne with a custom black and white newspaper print featuring images and designs from Ashley Williams’ previous collections.
