With print set to pave the way again in SS13, it means you have the opportunity to incorporate more interesting and playful pieces into your existing wardrobe. Not only in regards to your clothing but also in terms of accessories and footwear.
Clashing and mixing prints/colours throughout your outfit can appear both stylish and extremely individual if done correctly. This can be achieved using pieces from such capsule collections such as the latest from the Vans x Kenzo collaboration.
Continuing to develop the jungle motif adopted by Kenzo’s Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, the brand has produced a range of bold men’s footwear for the spring/summer season. Working in an urban palette of orange, blue and khaki hues the collection features reworked leopard prints that have been blended or clashed to provide the edgy appeal often associated with the Japanese fashion giant.
Vans’ involvement is instantly recognisable by the iconic shoe silhouettes and logo detailing. When coupled with the Kenzo influence the result is both cool and commercial, appealing to fashion followers as well as quirky hipster types.
Noteworthy pieces from the collection include the orange/green colour way as well as the blue/yellow version. With such vivid contrasting hues at the forefront of the designs, each piece opens the door for an entire outfit to be constructed using similar or opposite tones.
If you are looking to up your shoe game this SS13, the Vans x Kenzo collaboration will add a welcome element of eastern cool to your collection.
