Julia Chiang x OG Authentic 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.
Julia Chiang is a multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Julia often works with paint and ceramics, creating detailed repetitious marks and forms that not only reveal but celebrate imperfection. For her capsule collection, Julia imagined how they would live within the real world – how they would sink into sand, dip into water, and be worn on the streets. Her goal with the four-piece footwear and apparel collection was to share the joy and nostalgia she feels when she thinks of Vans and her creations with theirs.
Julia’s collection includes an OG Authentic LX for adults and a matching Authentic for kids which feature her painting atop a washed denim upper. Both pairs include a blue outsole along with a yellow foxing stripe and yellow laces. Her capsule collection is complete with a color blocked bucket hat and a heavy cotton tee that uses an all-over watercolor inspired wash with a gradient screen print of her painting along the bottom hem.
