Not to pick favorites or anything, but in a post-Karl-Lagerfeld-for-H&M world, collaborations that really get us going are rare. But this time, Kenzo and Vans are following up their successful five-time collab with a sixth — sixth! — collection of seriously a-mazing printed sneakers for Opening Ceremony.
Kenzo, a Japanese brand known for their kitschy prints and youthful spirit (especially since OC Creative Directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon took over), brightened the iconic lace-up shoe for fall 2012 with everything from the much-anticipated multi-colored grapevine print to a spotted black-and-white style. There’s even a pair of marbled slip ons if that’s more your style, and we can’t stop thinking about how perfectly they’ll pair with a sheer maxi skirt and chunky sweater for the cooler months.
