Sneak It

  • Fashion
August 29, 2014
Asja Nastasijevic is an Art Historian with the major in Modern Art, involved in art writing and criticism for several years now. Art is her passion and writing about it is both work and pleasure.

Another creative endeavor involving art and fashion is about to be showcased. This time Vans gave a pair of Vans authentic sneakers to a group of street artists, tattooists, designers and illustrators and asked them to use sneakers as canvas. Collaboration, of course, ended with a great realization.

This kind of collaboration has long been a part of sneaker culture. For this special collection of sneakers, selected artists applied their distinctive urban designs ranging from geometric motifs to more intricate illustrations. The results are pretty spectacular. This colorful collection hypnotizes with its vibrancy, playfulness and high level of detail. Great temptation for any sneakerhead!
