Like Adidas and Bape, Vans and Mastermind Japan have a long history in common. Far from being their first collaboration, the two leaders are back together for a winter collab Mastermind Japan x Vans Sk8 hi.
It is difficult not to recognize the Japanese label because its so distinctive. The famous skull and crossbones are therefore logically the right thing to do. At a time when branding continues to hold the spotlight, Mastermind and Vans are not doing in the middle with the main panel of the Sk8 hi which is covered with a repetition of this famous logo. Apart from this concept, the silhouette has a common Sk8-hi look, so it is important to focus on the details and especially on the heel that advances a closure. The sole displays a tone-on-tone Mastermind lettering. The model is accompanied by a more discreet long sleeve t-shirt in its design, the logo repetition is dropped and it is at the end of the sleeves that we see the two logos appear with a subtle checkerboard print. It is the back of this item that is oriented towards a XL visual branding. This collaboration Mastermind Japan x Vans Sk8 hi is available for sale since December 14 at Vans dealers in Japan, you will still have to be patient for a European release.
