The Vault by Vans x Bedwin & The Heartbreakers collaboration draws on heritage textiles, using USA-made bandanas cut at different seams to exalt the level of detail and craftsmanship and ensure no two pairs are alike.
Blending Japanese design with Western styling, Tokyo menswear company Bedwin & The Heartbreakers turned heads when it launched in 2004, becoming one of the first brands in Japan to combine streetwear and tailored menswear. Since then, the brand has only gained notoriety, opening its flagship Tokyo store in 2017.
Vans’ original style, the Authentic LX, gets the Bedwin & The Heartbreakers treatment in three different bandana colorways. Subtle pattern variations make for a unique shoe and a red foxing stripe paired with a red “Off The Wall” heel logo nods to Vans’ classic heritage. The Old Skool LX, the first shoe to bear Vans’ iconic Sidestripe, is elevated in rich blue canvas and suede, with a bandana Sidestripe and tongue.
In addition to the footwear, Vault by Vans x Bedwin and the Heartbreakers introduce apparel and accessories, for a true head-to-toe fit. The Vault by Vans x Bedwin & The Heartbreakers collaborative collection releases at BSTN on Saturday, July 24th. Grab your favorite pieces via the button below!
