VANS X DISNEY - "YOUNG AT HEART" AW15
These iconic brands come together once again for the next instalment of the Young at Heart Collection, this time featuring characters from the classic Disney animated films Alice in Wonderland, 101 Dalmatians and The Jungle Book. Vans brings these cherished stories to life across an assortment of adult and kids footwear as well as apparel capsules for men and women this holiday season.
First screened in 1951, Alice in Wonderland brought a young girl named Alice into the nonsensical, magical world of Wonderland. The dedicated footwear pack captures key scenes and personalities from the film with three prints including the Rabbit Hole, Wonderland and Cheshire Cat patterns. The apparel selection inspired by Alice in Wonderland includes men’s and women’s items such as tees, pullovers and accessories. As an added bonus, key men’s apparel pieces featuring Cheshire Cat are printed with special glow-in-the-dark ink.
Debuting in 1961, 101 Dalmatians hit cinemas over 50 years ago and charmed audiences across the nation with its cast of canine heroes. Disney’s Dalmatians come together for special colourways of the Vans Sk8-Hi Reissue in white and Authentic in red. Within the pattern furry friends can be seen in playful poses and upon closer inspection, one can spot a dalmatian chewing on his favourite shoe, the Vans Classic Slip-On. Both styles will be available in adult size runs while the Authentic will be taken down to kids and toddler sizing. Apparel inspired by 101 Dalmatians includes a raglan, crewneck fleece, keychain, backpacks and socks designed for women. SO cute!
This is my favourite collection in the second instalment of the Vans x Disney collaboration. The Jungle Book became an animated film in 1967 and has taught generations about the “Bare Necessities” of life since its inception. Our favourite characters are blended into a vintage Vans pattern to create a floral camouflage-style print for the Vans Classic Slip-On in adult sizing and Vans Authentic in adult, kids and toddler fits. The Jungle Book apparel includes a raglan, bucket hat, backpack and socks designed for men.
