I don’t know why this didn’t happen sooner but Vans finally meets Van Gogh. In this wonderfully alliterative combination, the well known athletic brand has created a collection based around four of the creative genius’s works. Finding inspiration in —Skull, Sunflowers, Almond Blossom, Self-Portrait as a Painter, Old Vineyard with Peasant Woman— which offer glimpses into certain moments in the artist life, these wearable masterpieces are now available to the masses.
Almond Blossom is one of my favorite pieces by Van Gogh and without a doubt my favorite part of this collection. I would buy every single piece if I could.
The collection will be sold online at both Vans and at the Van Gogh Museum’s gift shop, and the museum will be donating all profits from the collaboration to the preservation of the Van Gogh collection and keeping the artist’s legacy alive.
