Vault by Vans and Notre Reconnect
The Chicago-based retailer revamps their inaugural collaboration with Vault by Vans, introducing new colors.
Vault by Vans and Chicago’s Notre are pleased to present their second collaboration, once again selecting premium materials and applying them to the beloved OG Old-Skool LX silhouette.
Notre first put their spin on this iconic model in late 2018, layering their signature handshake motif over hairy green suede. Now, they’ve refined the style further, and brought it back in four new, tonal colorways referencing classic Vans models: off-white, black, blue, and red. Each pair ships in a custom box bearing Notre’s motto: “There are many ways of doing things besides your own.”
“That motto comes from The Whole Earth Catalog, and it’s inspired a lot of what we’ve done as a shop over the past few years, and what we try to stand for: teamwork, learning from one another, staying open-minded,” said Notre co-founder and co-owner MJ Jaworowski. “This year has been tough for everyone, obviously, so we felt this would be a good moment to re-introduce our Vans shoe concept, which itself promotes a message of togetherness.”
Vault by Vans x Notre OG Old-Skool LX ($90) is designed to be subtle and versatile, ideal for daily wear and made from materials that age with character. This release is rounded out with a two-piece capsule collection designed and produced by Notre, including the “Linking Hands” hoodie ($98) in Black and Heather Grey, and the “Many Ways” short-sleeved t-shirt ($36) in Black and Off-White.
The Vault by Vans x Notre OG Old-Skool LX and private label capsule will be available exclusively through Notre’s online store on October 31.
