Think it’s easy to admit that we get tired of trends pretty quickly. But art, oh art; it’s forever *insertchefskiss.jpg*. Art is larger than life, defies the normal and isn’t limited to a dusty frame. Art is everywhere, like, just look at your sneakers.
Vans loves a good artsy collab. Their #OffTheWall motto is about creative expression and individuality after all. And the skate brand has been museum hopping off late. It was ollieing up at the Van Gogh Museum a while ago, and has now reached The Museum of Modern Art or MoMA, as we like to call it.
Vans x MoMA drops their second shoes and clothes collection featuring artworks of world-famous painters from MoMA’s galleries. So picture this. Russian avant-garde artist Lyubov Popova’s “Painterly Architectonic” and “Untitled” as a pair of Sk8-Hi’s. Sold yet?
Norwegian Edvard Munch’s iconic “The Scream” Era shoes and American Faith Ringgold’s illustrated book cover “Seven Passages to a Flight” Slip-Ons. An earlier drop had Salvador Dali’s surrealist “The Persistence of Memory” Old Skool and Vasily Kandinsky’s “Orange” Slip-Ons. Actual masterpieces on your feet!
Also, take a breather if you actually read through the above two paragraphs, cause these names are definitely mouthful, but so will be yours when you rock a pair of these Vans sneaks. I’M A MASTER OF SPIN! ᕦ(ò_óˇ)ᕤ
Best yet, you don’t have to be a billionaire to start collecting these. Wear them or display them – up to you. You’re the artist, Vans’ the art. *mic drop*
