Vans taps trailblazing rapper Tierra Whack for a uniquely creative collection of footwear, apparel and accessories designed by Tierra Whack in collaboration with her longtime stylist Shirley Kurata.

The creative vision of Tierra Whack brought to life in Vans footwear and apparel, Vans x Tierra Whack collection blends a radical take on 1980s style with key elements of Vans brand heritage for a truly unique expression of design outside the lines. 

Adapting the rapper’s irreverent approach to music and fashion, Vans x Tierra Whack is a mélange of colors, shapes, patterns, and phrases that explores limitless creativity. That freedom sees Whack and her longtime collaborator, Shirley Kurata, inject the collection with an inspiring sense of play, rendering each style singularly ‘Whack’. Over shared histories and a wealth of clashing and coinciding references, Whack and Kurata infuse the collection with the positive energy of self-expression.

“It was an amazing experience to be able to take what I do with music and apply it to fashion,” said Whack. “Making music is all about collaboration and it was great to work with Shirley and with Vans to give people a collection they can feel free in.”

Vans x Tierra Whack is available online and at select Vans retailers from December 3, 2021.
