Vans & Summer Bummer Go Monochrome in New Joint Collection

When it’s deliver-or-die, supply chains become the lifeblood of a company. To that end, the fashion industry has embraced technology to navigate today’s hyper-complicated supply chain, with myriad solutions shaping the first, middle and last mile. Call it Sourcing 2.0.

Vans is going all black and white with Venice-based brand Summer Bummer in a new joint apparel and footwear capsule collection for women.

Designed in partnership with Summer Bummer owner Alexandria Cassaniti, the Vans x Summer Bummer Capsule for Women contrasts the beach and the street, blending Vans D.I.Y aesthetic with Summer Bummer’s hallmark black and white color-block design and graphics.

For the collection Cassaniti customized four Vans footwear silhouettes and also created two sportswear-inspired sandals, the Vans Sandalia and Slide-On. The deconstructed Checkerboard Slip-On SF calls upon retro Vans styling with doodles on the sidewall, while the monochromatic Dazie-Hi takes a fun twist with a glow-in-the-dark sidestripe and sidewall. Bold, patterned apparel pieces round out the collection, with design influence drawn heavily from surf culture, such as the woman’s wetsuit, the zip-front Sum Bum Zip Dress, which is emblazoned with Summer Bummer graphics along the color-blocked side panels.

The Vans x Summer Bummer collection is available online now through Vans.
