RETROSUPERFUTURE introduced the concept of collaboration in the eyewear sector in 2008. This approach has become one of the pillars of the RSF brand’s DNA, working with people and inspirational global brands over the past 11 years.
The RETROSUPERFUTURE/VAULT BY VANS collection is a collaboration that celebrates the essence of the classic streetwear culture. Synonymous with timeless and authentic style, Vans is an authority and an icon in the scene. For the first time, RSF expands beyond the realm of glasses, designing a color-coded capsule collection that includes footwear and long-sleeved shirts. The idea is based on the concept that since we were children in school, the general rule of style was to combine the t-shirt with sneakers.
Therefore, the use of the RSF brand of color on glasses is translated into footwear and clothing, where a rigid matching rule has been set and respected throughout the entire collection: natural tones are combined with contrasting bright shades. The khaki is in fact combined with acid green and black is combined with a pungent violet in each component of the capsule collection. The two brands have each chosen a key piece from their archives: Smile di RSF and OG 43 LX by Vans are the central points of the collaboration.
The Smile glasses by RSF combine with the young and fresh charm of Vault by Vans. The robust design was made following the color combination of the entire collection, combining a light khaki with acid green lenses and a black frame with bright purple lenses. Both models have exclusive brand inscriptions on the outside of the arms. Like the rest of the collection, even long-sleeved shirts follow the color code: natural shades with contrasting acid shades. Vans’ iconic Style 43 OG LX Vault completes the look, featuring a combination of material and RSF 3D rubberized brand. Final touch: the translucent sole, one in acid green and one in purple.
RSF and Vans are both focused on designing products that allow personal style to bring out its creative expression. Furthermore, as a commitment to enhance and celebrate the creativity of women in fashion, RSF and Vans worked closely with Agostina Galvez, a talented young film maker and Chynna, a rising star in the hip-hop scene.
RSF/VAULT BY VANS will be released on September 13th, with a launch party in Milan, which will present a complete line-up of talented female musicians. The collection will be available at RETROSUPERFUTURE stores, Vault by Vans retailers and online.
