New Painting by Matt Dangler

Vans X Malcolm Mclaren

Anyhow, we mentioned a collaborative release that would extend over to Vans as well, and below is the visual evidence. These sneakers are definitely a bit more active and colorful compared to the Supreme apparel items. The model that was chosen to receive a makeover was the lesser known V-79 model, which features a very subtle look and feel, which was most likely to give way for the extreme color and detail inside the insole and tongue. Expect a release in the U.S. on May 21st, and May 23rd for Japan.

Supreme X Malcolm Mclaren

Supreme are one of the few brands on the market at the moment that take inspiration from their roots in regards to music. Surpeme looked to Bad Brains for inspiration on previous projects, Miles Davis, and now, Malcom Mclaren. Those unfamiliar with Malcom must know that he had a huge part in the success of the New York Dolls, as well as the Sex Pistols back in the 70’s. Supreme are set to release a small collection which includes all-original artwork from Malcom on items including t-shirts, hoodies, and even a New Era cap. Some of the artwork done-up by Mclaren is very similar to Keith Haring artwork. The small collection can expect a release in the U.S. on the 21st, and Japan on the 23rd. As if this weren’t enough, Vans will also be taking part in the release of the V-79 model. Something different, and something nice!
