The collaboration crosses the pond, bringing bold, splashy prints.
Cypress, CALIF. (Oct 15, 2015) – In preparation for the holiday season, Vans partners with British design house Eley Kishimoto, a brand known for its bold, vibrant prints, to launch a second installment of Vans footwear, apparel and accessories.
