The uncertainty of the future is a topic that has been discussed, written about and contemplated by humans over the course of several centuries. Cali Thornhill DeWitt, a multi-faceted artist based in Los Angeles, is the latest individual to offer his “two cents” on the subject, teaming up with Vault by Vans to do so across a seven-piece apparel and footwear collection.
Featuring VLT LX-iterations of the Sk8-Hi, Slip-On, Old Skool, Era and Chukka Boot, the shoes included in the next “OFF THE WALL” capsule indulge in versatile color combinations. DeWitt, however, delivers his commentary on the aforementioned existential conundrum via original artwork. Photo-real graphics are coupled with thought-provoking quotes; for inspiration, the 48-year-old analyzed the “insufferable, self-obsessed egos of mankind,” as shared in an official press release from Vans. The ultimate goal?: To capture the “endless spiral of stupidity, the death of privacy and the funeral for the mystery that lies ahead.”
DeWitt’s Vault by Vans collection arrives to select stockists on December 23rd.
