A cool blend of contemporary & retro culture

Vans releases a collection of footwear featuring art by Frida Kahlo

Skate brand Vans obviously consider its shoes the perfect canvas to splash art on. Last year, the famous footwear brand released an epic collection featuring the artwork of Vincent van Gogh. This year it’s Frida Kahlo’s turn.

Created under the directional line, Vault by Vans, the colourful collection features some of Kahlo’s most vibrant and well-known works.

Three of the brand’s iconic styles have been updated in tribute to Kahlo’s work, including the OG Sk8-Hi LX which features the self-portrait The Two Fridas (one on each shoe, geddit?), the OG Slip-On LX which celebrates Kahlo’s iconic Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird, and the OG Authentic LX shoe which boasts a watermelon print from the artist’s Viva la Vida painting.

The limited edition Vault by Vans x Frida Kahlo collection is available at select Vault dealers internationally. To keep tabs on if and when they’ll be available in Australia, click here.
