Summer might be slowly fading out here in South Africa but that is no reason not to cop this heat. Vans is making sure that they own the summer of 2018 with the new Yacht Club Pack collection. The collection is meant for the warm sunny weather by the beach with the cool breeze blowing through your hair and floral shirt.
The Yacht Club pack is a collection of the iconic Vans Slip-On and the Old Skool silhouettes that are reimagined for the summer season. Both sneakers feature a color-blocked colorway that immediately stands out and screams out summer. The Old Skool features a sunburst yellow leather heel and indigo blue upper lace detail and a chlorophyll green canvas side panel that all come together to create a cool contrast of textures and color. The Slip-On was kept slight simpler with the whole shoe made from different colour canvas but still keeping the same colorway. Although the shoes may seem too out there, they will not prove difficult to be styled and worn with your favorite chinos or jeans.
Even though summer may be temporarily done on our side, you can still scoop you a pair and wait for the summer season to kill the streets. Check these out in the meantime. Let us know what you think.
Don Design A Teases New Collection Drop
Check out the new drip by MondayIIMonday
Don Design teases the first part of his new collection. NoMoozlie was spotted in the Big Apple rocking these new threads from Don. The latest collection features a reinterpretation of the Celine brand, overlaid on Tupac’s Face.
Don is no stranger to the counterfeit culture. Counterfeiting is a global fashion trend that has flooded the International fashion streets for some time now. We’ve seen brands like Balenciaga recreate the Bernie Sanders campaign logo. Moreover, designers like Virgil have risen to fame through their renditions and recreations of popular brands.
Don Design has taken the same approach to his clothing. However, he brings it back home. We’ve all seen the popular ‘Sandton’ and ‘Bryanston’ hoodies around town. Hence, we are excited to see what Don has in store for us this time. The Beam Group designer is gearing up for a pop-up launch for his latest collection.
It is quite interesting to see the take that Don has towards counterfeit fashion. There has been a lot of misunderstanding amongst the SA fashion connoisseurs. With many people accusing him of not being original. This is, however, not the case. We are certain that this collection will set the record straight. Although we have not seen much from it we are sure to see more from Don at the Pop-Up.
Stay tuned to @Don_Design to get more information on this latest drop and how to get your hands on it. We will be there to cover it all as it happens.
