And what’s better than a shoe to encompass the rebellious and nonconformist steps of an entire generation?
The latest collaboration between Concepts and Vault by Vans is literally the end of the world. “World’s End” is the name of a collection that stitches all the rebellion and the need to revolutionize the punk counterculture into the fabrics of a Sk8-Hi and a Slip-On. An attitude, that of punk who wanted to go against the fashion of the time, but which himself proved to be a style icon recognized to this day.
Curious isn’t it? Rebelling against a system, but then entering it with both feet, or rather both shoes. Unfortunately or fortunately, even the most revolutionary souls have to deal with our society and resign themselves to the idea of having to be part of it in order to really change things. Only if you live in a situation can you understand and modify it.
So dear rebellious souls who are looking, even with just an accessory, to communicate your desire to escape, now the opportunity seems to have come to retrace the steps of your punk icons.
Concepts x Vault by Vans sneakers have a decidedly street and underground style thanks to the wild prints and fuzzy textures that draw on Vivienne Westwood‘s legendary mohair sweaters. The collection’s name is also inspired by a boutique that Westwood ran with his longtime partner, Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McClaren.
The shaggy mohair fabric covers the entire upper of the two models in the collection: pink, purple and red for the Sk8-Hi, while with black and white stripes for the Slip-Ons. The soles are also different. White for the Sk8-Hi and glossy black for the Slip-On.
Both shoes will be perfect to wear with a clothing line, which will be available on cncpts.com starting September 24.
