Tons of style bloggers like Magdalena are Vans fans!

If you thought Vans sneakers were for scruffy skater boys alone, then think again!

Kenzo x Vans Collaboration

The keepers of cool, Opening Ceremony founders Carole Lim and Humberto Leon, introduced a Kenzo x Vans collaboration in their first season designing for the Paris-via-Japan  fashion house. A bold statement when you consider French high fashion is a relatively no sneakers zone. The range features the graphic net print the duo has already made a signature in super-clashing red, green, blue, yellow and cream. Fashion eds are duly drooling and stockist Harvey Nichols are reporting that one particular colourway (the green and blue) has already sold out and is being pre-ordered by customers.

And as if the stamp of approval from team Opening Ceremony wasn’t quite enough, the Vans sneaker peeps have teamed up with destination streetwear store and cult-making central, Supreme. For those of you who don’t know, London’s Soho store Supreme is THE place to shop for rare and collectable urbanwear, with enough exclusive pieces and limited editions to warrant queues of people who have travelled from as far as Japan. So you can imagine, this is going to be a pretty popular pairing. So, could you see yourself as a Vans girl? Are high fashion sneakers a new status symbol to others in the know?
