Vans and NYC-Based Designer Sandy Liang Reunite for Playful, Elevated Footwear and Apparel Collection

 
‘90s-inspired Classics Draw on Designer’s Childhood Memories and Personal Connections.

Vans x Sandy Liang Available Worldwide Beginning January 28, 2022
 
 

This spring, Vans reunites with Lower East Side, NY designer Sandy Liang for a third footwear and apparel collaboration. Inspired by the ‘90s and childhood nostalgia, Sandy Liang has once again placed her signature stamp on some of Vans’ most iconic footwear and apparel pieces. Looking to elevate beloved styles, this head-to-toe collection reflects the designer’s deeply personal connection to New York City. The Vans x Sandy Liang collection will be available globally beginning January 28, 2022.

With passions spanning fashion, film, architecture and concept design, Sandy Liang personifies the creative expression that is synonymous with Vans. Sandy uses grandma fashion, sport femme, nostalgia, and humor as her guiding design principles for the footwear and apparel assortment.

Sandy opted for intentionally ironic graphics for both footwear and apparel. The Authentic 44 DX is a digitally printed replica of a shoe that Sandy customized herself with scribbles of happy butterflies that carry through to a matching short sleeve tee, pullover and crossbody bag. The beloved Half Cab 33 DX has been transformed with green Sherpa uppers and a custom flower eyelet.

The Vans Sandy Liang Collection will be available beginning January 28, 2022, at select Vans retailers, Vans.com and SandyLiang.com. For more information, and where to purchase, please visit The Drop List, a calendar of Vans’ most exclusive product drops.
