Soko x Old Skool V Platform LX
Vault by Vans reunites with Sarah Andelman to uplift the voices and work of four global female artists - Julia Chiang, Sindiso Khumalo, Fumiko Imano and Soko - in celebration of International Women’s Day. This curation not only highlights Sarah Andlerman's impeccable taste and passion for storytelling, but it takes it even further into the diverse network of inspiring women.
French singer-songwriter, musician, and actress Soko has been twice nominated for a César Award and twice nominated for a Lumiere Award for her work in film. Since launching a career as a musician in 2012, she has released three albums and comes into her own as an artist who makes sunny yet intimate and emotional songs. Soko has been on the cover of countless magazines and has also reached the top of Billboard charts. A figure known for her remarkable access to emotion, Soko seeks to investigate the façades and social conditioning that repress emotions. For her Vault by Vans capsule collection, Soko revisits memories of her early childhood with bright, playful illustrations of her cat, Felix, that are seen across the Old Skool V Platform for adults and the Old Skool V for children. The footwear is complemented with a long sleeve tee that features novelty sport inspired jersey graphics and an allover printed explorer-style bucket hat.
