High-end fashion is not done with skate culture yet, with Vans announcing a collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld.

The duo has joined forces for a capsule collection of apparel and footwear, which is set to launch worldwide from September 7.

The collection will see Vans’ iconic checkerboard pattern fused with Lagerfeld motifs, such as the letter ‘K’ and his iconic profile. 

It will also include black and white T-shirts, bombers and backpacks, emblazoned with Lagerfeld’s iconic image. 

You can expect prices to range from $40 to $300, with the capsule collection making its debut at the Bread & Butter trade show in Berlin in early September. From September 7, it will be distributed in Karl Lagerfeld boutiques internationally and selected Vans accounts, as well as online.

Keep an eye out for the drop here.
