Along with long lines outside the door, broken e-stores and doubled-or-greater resale prices on eBay, one easy way to determine if a collaboration succeeded is whether the partnership persists for later projects. By that measure, French fashion label Kenzo is crushing it with Off the Wall of late, as their sixth set of Vans lowtops makes its first appearance today. Following up on memorable patterns including multicolored snake and stripes, floral, grape, marble and moth designs comes three each Kenzo x Vans Authentics and Slip-Ons, all treated to prints somewhere between rosettes and colorful flowers as inspired by the clouded leopard. As far ahead of the Year of the Snake as they were with last April’s drops, Kenzo pushes even stronger to the top of the pattern charts with these designs combining two of the hottest textures. Click through to see which of these six is your favorite and look for the latest Kenzo x Vans drop next Friday, March 15th at select retailers.
