Known for her experimental artistry, Tierra Whack has recently unveiled her first-ever, full-blown collaboration with Vans, which features both footwear and apparel.

A follow-up to a one-off Vans Old Skool the 26-year-old designed for attendees of a 2019 House of Vans performance in her hometown of Philadelphia, the multi-piece collection captures a glimpse of the spoken word artist’s mind. The aforementioned Old Skool is reissued as part of the joint-project, with its multi-color and enlarged “WHACK” text, checkerboard pattern and “WEIRD HYPE AND CREATIVE KIDS” phrase on the midsole. Accompanying Vans Style 36, Vans Half Cab and Vans Standard Snow MTE propositions also boast personal, bold touches from the “Whack World” visionary.

To accompany the vibrant colors and playful branding found on her footwear selection, Whack tapped her longtime stylist, Shirley Kurata, for assistance on t-shirt, hat, bottoms and socks offerings. Statement-making mis-matched patterns and colors cover everything from “IT’S OKAY TO CRY” long-sleeve tees to crewneck sweaters, while Whack ensures her name is stamped on each piece.

“It was an amazing experience to be able to take what I do with music and apply it to fashion,” said Whack in a statement shared by the “OFF THE WALL” brand. “[I]t was great to work with Shirley and with Vans to give people a collection they can feel free in.”
