Vans X Civilist
“Back to the Roots”
...the collage of a squirrel:
Berlin, Germany. (July 27, 2021) – Vans and legendary Berlin-based skate brand Civilist, join forces with artist Carsten Fock on a new footwear collection.
An ode to the city of Berlin, the drop includes three Sk8-Low colourways – including one Civilist exclusive – designed with help from Carsten Fock. Renowned for his graphics and paintings inspired by fashion, pop culture, politics and society, Fock’s pencil-drawn letters are embroidered and printed on the suede Sk8-Low. The souvenir-esque collection features “Say Goodbye to the City” embroidered on the sidewall, while “Back to the Roots” is printed on the sockliner and “I once was in Berlin” covers the shoebox. Two contrasting black and white colourways, the latter being the Civilist exclusive, sit alongside a subtle tonal navy colourway.
The Vans x Civilist footwear collection will be available in-store at Civilist on Wednesday 28th July, online at Civilist on Thursday 29th July and globally at select skate retailers on Friday 30th July.
