This summer, Vault by Vans collaborates with Brain Dead, a creative collective of artists, musicians and designers from all over the world, to create a nine-piece capsule collection inspired by the spirit of subculture. The collection presents unique iterations of Vans classic footwear, apparel and accessories in faded shades of pink, green and yellow with custom hieroglyphic designs. Founded by Kyle Ng and Ed Davis, Brain Dead has quickly emerged into the coveted upper echelon of streetwear fashion, describing itself as “not one person, nor is it one idea; it sits in the space between people.”
This mentality is prominent throughout the collection, emphasizing a disruptive aesthetic across Vans
With a partnership dating back to the early 1980’s, Vans brings forth the third installment of Vans x Peanuts designs, highlighting characters from Charles M. Schulz’s beloved Peanuts gang. Using vintage illustrations from the late ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s, Vans designers bring “Off The Wall” elements to iconic Peanuts moments that remain true to Vans’ unique design aesthetic. The Vans x Peanuts collection of footwear, apparel and accessories launches worldwide June 2.
The Vans x Peanuts collection features six core designs across a variety of silhouettes within the Vans Classics, Surf and Apparel collections. Peanuts protagonist, Charlie Brown, kicks off the collection quite literally as he is seen on a men’s pocket tee and raglan pushing his way on skateboard in pair of Old Skools. Cop his steez with a pair of Old Skools outfitted in yellow canvas and black suede, showcasing a chevron Sidestripe and “Good Grief” embroidered atop the tongue of each shoe.

Its crazy to me how quickly Josh pulls his tricks. Every thing in this edit was 1st or 2nd take. Right now Josh is running the 20.8 silver Wizard frame with snafu parts. It was Raining very heavy the day we planned to film so we set up to meet at THE VILLAGE skate park and we finish so quickly that the local kids were still in Class. Massive thanks to Chris at the Village.
