On September 7 Karl Lagerfeld and Vans will be releasing their new collaboration. The Chanel creative director and designer and this skater-boy shoe company may appear a weird and wonderful mix of creative minds but nonetheless intriguing.

This partnering looks at the vans Sk8-Hi, Old Skool and 6 other interpretations. Think white platform soles to match Lagerfeld’s white platform hair or a classic black leather slip-on with a quilted “K” (Chanel’s richness had to slip in there somehow) and you’ve got the collection. Vans have stated that: ‘we wanted it to be iconic Karl meets iconic Vans’ which we’re sure it will be. Of course Karl is oh too cool to comment, darling. The collaboration will also include tees, bomber jackets and backpacks so you can be head-to-toe high street luxury.
