The internet has collectively lost its mind over news of a Vans x Karl Lagerfeld collaboration.

We’ve been drip-fed information ever since the news broke last week, and now we finally have images of the entire collection.

The 12-piece collection consists of six updated sneaker silhouettes, including laceless, platform versions of the Sk8 Hi and Old Skool styles. It also revisits Vans’ classic checkerboard print, by adding Lagerfeld’s profile onto slip-on styles.     

The entire collection is black and white, with tees also featuring the Lagerfeld graphic, plus hoodies and a bomber jacket. A quilted backpack and checkerboard hat satisfy the accessories department.

The collection drops worldwide from September 7, with prices ranging from the very affordable $40 to $300 across Karl Lagerfeld and Vans stores.

In the meantime, check out the collaboration in the gallery above.

And now we wait.
