Vans X Peanuts Collaboration

Take two icons and mash them up. Vans Footwear and Peanuts, home of Snoopy and Charlie Brown. Back in 1983, Camp Snoopy started at Knott’s Berry Farm. As part of the opening, Vans teamed up with Peanuts to produce a limited edition line marking the partnership. Now, Vault by Vans brings the duo back with this line of Peanuts-character imprinted sneakers. Lucy, Sally, Snoopy, Charlie Brown and Peppermint Patty all show up. Vans have made these sneakers available for both adults and children. So if you have little pint-sized skateboarders, both of you can get matching pairs. Get the shoes at Vault retailers.

“I mean listen, we talkin’ bout laces. Not a game, not a game, not a game. We talkin’ bout laces. Not a game, not a, not a, not the game that I go out there and die for, and play every game like it’s my last. Not the game. We talkin’ bout laces, man. I mean how silly is that?

What Happens When You Let Kanye West Design Clothes

Kanye West sold out his most recent collection for A.P.C. last year. His fashion fans crashed A.P.C.’s website in search of $120 white t-shirts and $280 sweatshirts. Naturally, A.P.C. gave him another collection this year.

He explained that ‘paint colors’ inspired his collection as “had the modern family, which he described as ‘me, Kim and North’ living a ‘jet-set life’ between New York, Paris and Los Angeles”. So basically, colors inspired him, as well as him just looking around his private jet. Nice.

Take a look at his collection and try to predict this season’s best sellers.

Be a modern-day Superman and wear this jacket like a cape.
