SUMMER BUMMER Apparel and Vans present their collaboration Summer capsule collection because “It’s always summer somewhere”

Cypress, CALIF. (April 11, 2016)Vans unveils an exclusive women's apparel and footwear capsule in collaboration with Venice-based brand SUMMER BUMMER. Designed in partnership with SUMMER BUMMER owner, Alexandria Cassaniti, Vans presents the multi-piece collection because "it's always summer somewhere."

The Vans x SUMMER BUMMER collection contrasts the beach and the street blending

Vans D.I.Y aesthetic with SUMMER BUMMER'S hallmark black and white color-block design and graphics. Cassaniti customized four Vans footwear silhouettes and highlights the debut of two sportswear-inspired sandals, the Vans Sandalia and Slide-On, with her bold graphics. The deconstructed Checkerboard Slip-On SF calls upon retro Vans styling with doodles on the sidewall, while the monochromatic Dazie-Hi takes a fun twist with a glow-in-the-dark Sidestripe and sidewall.

Bold apparel pieces round out the collection, with design influence drawn heavily from surf culture. Fashioned after a woman's wetsuit, the zip-front Sum Bum Zip Dress is emblazoned with SUMMER BUMMER graphics along the color-blocked side panels. The Sum Bum Tote takes the form of a traditional bucket bag and uses Cassaniti's signature neoprene along the bottom, a Vans canvas upper and rope straps. The Sum Bum Tank with graphic-printed hem and matching Sum Bum Cap top off the collection offering.

The Vans x SUMMER BUMMER collection available to shop in stores and online now. Visit and chase your endless summer.
