Intricate jacquard-weave designs elevate Vans classic silhouettes
This spring, Vault by Vans returns with a new collection of premium footwear, showcasing jacquard materializations to highlight classic Vans imagery. The stylized Vans silhouettes are fabricated into intricate, variegated weaves and patterns for an elevated take on the classics.
In this five-piece collection, the elaborate development process is featured on three Original Classics silhouettes - the Sk8-Hi, Old Skool and Authentic. Each pair in the Jacquard assortment incorporates a distinct jungle floral print and for the Authentic styles, it is combined with Vans’ iconic checkerboard print.
The jacquard weaving process is an intricate process in which all threads are pre-dyed to match Vans’ custom Pantone colors, hand-selected by the Vault by Vans designers. These strands are then threaded through hundreds of needles on a jacquard loom, which carefully weaves each upper to the finest detail. Each pattern is strategically designed and engineered as a one-piece upper creating a sleek rendition on the classic silhouettes.
The Vault by Vans x Jacquard collection launches on May 27, 2017 in Europe at select Vault accounts including:
