the greatest vans homage to album art. #sonicyouth #neworder
happy easter from sonic youth, mike kelley, dirty bunnies & the other side of the pillow
produced by vans for sonic youth & a DGC records promotional contest, they feature the bunny from the album art by mike kelley for the aforementioned band's 1992 album 'dirty'. little else is know about these rarities nor how many were customade at this time. the print is obscure unless you know what you're looking at & the uppers are not super duck canvas like regular vans materials of the time but a synthetic form backed with canvas. the laces are the white rabbit at the end of the rabbithole however, with 1 featuring the band & the other featuring the album name. please excuse the fact i had never listened to sonic youth til this moment however did enjoy this video directed by spike jonze & including jason lee.
