Vans honours the legacy of David Bowie with an out-of-this-world collection

Words by Ruby Staley

Ground Control to Major Tom.

Vans is celebrating the life and creativity of David Bowie in a new five-piece collection of footwear and apparel.

The collaboration combines classic Vans design with Bowie’s unique style to commemorate the unforgettable imagery of the Aladdin Sane and Ziggy Stardust album covers, as well as the Serious Moonlight tour.

Paying homage to the musician’s first hit single, ‘Space Oddity’, Vans re-decorated its original skate shoe, the Classic Era, with blue and green hues and cylindrical shapes which mirror the original album cover.

The pack also includes a pearlescent Old Skool with an iconic red and blue lightning bolt, a fuzzy checkerboard Slip-On and a red patent leather Sk8-Hi Platform fit for Ziggy Stardust. The unisex pieces will be available for Bowie lovers of all sizes, from adults to toddlers.

You can find the collection in select Vans retail stores and online from April 5.
