To say Vision Street Wear birthed an entire industry would be an understatement. Founded in 1976, the Californian label is recognised as one of the original and most influential names to bridge the gap between the worlds of fashion, skate and music.
Responsible for a prototype of what would eventually become the modern skateboard, the brand’s revolutionary approach made it the sponsor of choice for world-class pro-skaters, and quickly began to garner an army of loyal fans.
Still regarded as one of the most iconic firms to grace the halfpipe, this year Vision Street Wear relaunched with its sights on the wider sportswear world, meaning it’s never been easier to get your hands on a whole range of old-school classics.
Available exclusively in Topman stores and online at Topman.com, here are six key pieces that should consider snapping up from the brand’s second drop, before they sell out (again).
6 Key Pieces Worth Snapping Up
Red And White Football Scarf
In recent seasons, retro, football-inspired kit has been volleyed off the pitch and into the waiting net of the streetwear world. An oversized terrace scarf offers the perfect way to incorporate a touch of throwback flair into your look.
This premier example from Vision Street Wear is a season ticket to soccer-meets-streetwear style thanks to its supersized shape and double-sided jacquard design, making it the ideal nostalgic neck warmer.
Navy Fleece Track Top
Streetwear’s ongoing love affair with sport doesn’t end at the touchline. In fact, the community has long drawn inspiration from all corners of the athletic world. Case in point: the tracksuit, a comfortable staple that is now just as essential on the streets as it is in the blocks.
In the latest drop, Vision Street Wear has put its own spin on the classic zip-up top, featuring zip pockets, branded zip pulls and Vision branding to the neck, all finished in a technical fleece fabric. Wear it as a standalone piece alongside denim, or pair it with the matching joggers for the full athleisure look.
Blue Ripstop Puffer Jacket
A voluminous puffer jacket is, without doubt, the ultimate nineties throwback garment. This insulating outer layer’s good looks and warming ways made it the coat of choice for warehouse ravers and weekend warriors all over the land, and now Vision Street Wear has brought it back up to date to meet modern requirements.
With fleece-lined innards, branding to the hood and a wadded stand collar, this bold rendition is the ideal way to keep the cold at bay. Consider it your new favourite outerwear staple that will keep looking great (and feeling warm) season after season.
Yellow Half Zip Track Top
As the boundaries between skatewear and sportswear become increasingly blurred, athletic classics such as the half-zip track top are fast becoming must-have items for boarders and streetwear aficionados alike.
In a vivid shade of yellow and featuring ribbed cuffs and hem for added warmth, Vision Street Wear’s vibrant chest-logo option is ideal for bringing a dull outfit to life on its own, or for making a statement when worn with the matching joggers.
Navy And Orange Repeat Jumper
Bold designs, over-the-top branding and louder-than-loud colours are par for the course for streetwear fans. Having been in the game for over 40 years, it’s a look that Vision Street Wear has got down to a fine art.
With statement knitwear infiltrating the everyman’s wardrobe this season, the California-born skate label has stepped things up with this eye-catching, repeat-logo design. Packaged into a neat crew neck cut, it’s a piece even the most novice of skaters could get well on board with.
White Essential T-Shirt
The box-logo T-shirt is one of streetwear’s true cornerstones. All of the scene’s biggest and best brands have released their own takes on this elevated basic over the years.
Not one to be left out, Vision Street Wear’s black-on-white iteration is woven from a premium, heavyweight cotton. It’s a classic fitting, fuss-free crew neck design with a clean, minimalist look that will ensure it matches pretty much anything you choose to wear it with.
