as we approach our 2nd birthday & whereby enter phase II of our enterprising venture, we endeavour to bring the summer 'heat' & hereby profile the much anticipated van's crescent island collection.
"for the adventurer who delights in those out of the way places & who appreciates the detail of hand crafted casuals" we present a collection when vans were at their peak of design in the late 80's, riding the crest of a high & beautiful wave.
the vans name was hitherto built on athletic & 'off the wall' casual wear however it was with this collection that they embraced the more luxurious market with depth of texture & subtleties of tone. this collection is for the true connoisseur, within who design-driven detail resonates. "the vans attitude speaks to this customer through unique textures & detailing blended into the basic silhouette." crescent island inhabitants as such, appreciate fabrics like suede, denim, corduroy & velvet in rich earth colours which complement the antique brass eyelets, pigskin trim & coordinated cord laces. equally as relevant today, the warm tones & deluxe accents perfectly accentuate the dressed up summer attire of your contrasting socks & tan chinos. both god & the devil remain in the details & at no time more than now have we had call to re-live such a detail-driven moment in the rich vans timeline.
