California dreaming.

Vans has revealed its California Souvenir pack, which pays homage to the brand’s home state of California.

The eight-piece capsule collection draws inspiration from a traditional souvenir jacket, reimagining the Slip-On, Old Skool and Sk8-Hi Reissue styles. It also includes a colour-blocked souvenir jacket in satin, complete with embroidered detailing.

The collection uses Californian graphics of palm trees and poppy flowers and embroiders them across a range including shoes, tees and a bomber jacket.

Of notable mention is the updated Slip-On style, which receives a pink satin upper, along with tiger and floral motifs. A black iteration is also available.

The Old Skool and Sk8-Hi styles are elevated with satin panelling throughout, arriving in black and gold colourways, while tees and a jacket round out the capsule collection.

The California Souvenir pack is expected to drop in-store and online globally from October. Fingers crossed the range makes its way Down Under.
