Anderson .Paak Readies 3rd Vans Collection
Anderson .Paak and Vans have developed a fruitful collaborative relationship throughout his decorated career. The 8x-Grammy winner is teaming up with the skatewear fashion brand once again for a third capsule collection, which is set to hit Vans retailers and the California-based company’s online shop starting the morning of June 24.
The eight-piece “Vanderson Collection” is filled with an array of t-shirts, sneakers like the EPack Sport, apparel and more accessories hand-picked by the Silk Sonic artist himself.
“Vans was super patient with me on this one,” Andy said in a statement. “We met every week in Malibu and designed these shoes in the California sunshine. This is my best drop yet and I’m so proud of what we’ve come up with.”
The capsule boasts adult, kids and toddler sizes while .Paak reportedly credits “heritage, creativity, and uplifting the community” as his main inspiration when crafting the collection. It’s his first collab with Vans in his new role as the first-ever global music ambassador for the company.
“We are beyond excited to continue this creative journey with AP into this next product collaboration,” Vans’ Director of Global Music Marketing, Tierney Stout, said. “Anderson was incredibly hands-on in the design and development of every piece in this collection.”
Andy directed a campaign for the collection, where he enlisted members of his family, including his son and niece, alongside Black-ish‘s Marsai Martin.
