Karl Lagerfeld, the head designer of Chanel, has collaborated with the skating brand, Vans for a collection that will mix both of the brand’s aesthetics together. The collection will be released on September 7th globally.

This sweatshirt is one of the items from the collection. The black hooded sweatshirt has the classic Vans checkered print on the sleeves and the Vans/Karl Lagerfeld logo on the chest. Also, if you look closely you can see the side profile of Lagerfeld’s face imprinted on the “K.” I have only seen that checkered print on Vans sneakers before, but I’m loving how it looks as a cuff.
This ensemble mixes edgy with sporty. This black knee-length leather skirt has ties that run parallel to eachother. To create a more laid-back vibe, a white Vans/Karl Lagerfeld t-shirt is tucked into the skirt with a black blazer tossed over it. As for the shoes? The classic black and white slip on sneakers are the perfect way to tie the look all together.
The classic Vans checkered sneaker got an upgrade with a montage of black and white Lagerfeld faces instead of boxes.
The collection will be available on both Karl.com and Vans.com and the prices will be in the mid-range.
