Vans continues its collaboration with Disney to release the Holiday 2015 installment of the Young at Heart collection. This holiday season Disney characters from Alice in Wonderland, 101 Dalmatians, and The Jungle Book decorate an assortment of adult and kids footwear and apparel offerings.
The Alice in Wonderland pack revolves around three key prints: the Rabbit Hole, Wonderland and the Cheshire Cat. The Rabbit Hole print highlights the White Rabbit, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Mad Hatter, Dormouse, and the Queen of Hearts and her Playing Cards henchmen on the side panels of the Vans Sk8-Hi silhouette in adult sizing. Several of these characters make another guest appearance in the Wonderland print on the Vans Classic Slip-On sneaker in sizes for women, kids, and toddlers. The Cheshire Cat print adorns the Vans Authentic silhouette in sizes for adults, kids, and toddlers as well.
Apparel for the Alice in Wonderland pack includes men’s and women’s tees, pullovers, and accessories. Some key men’s apparel pieces featuring the Cheshire Cat are even printed in special glow-in-the-dark ink!
Disney’s Dalmatians make their debut on the Vans Sk8-Hi Reissue in white and Authentic in red. The Vans Classic Slip-On silhouette features patterned dalmatians, some even chewing on their favorite shoe. All styles will be available in adult sizes, while the Authentic sneaker will expand the offering to kids and toddler sizing. Apparel inspired by 101 Dalmatians includes a raglan, crewneck fleece, keychain, backpacks and socks designed for women.
In The Jungle Book offering, characters of the film are blended into a vintage Vans pattern to create a floral camouflage-style print for the Vans Classic Slip-On in adult sizing and the Vans Authentic in adult, kids, and toddler sizes. The Jungle Book pack also includes a raglan, bucket hat, backpack, and socks designed for men.
The Young at Heart collection launches on October 9th in-stores and online at vans.com. To celebrate the launch, Vans Surf’s Leila Hurst and Vans Skate Team riders Daniel Lutheran and Lizzie Armanto showcase a selection of pieces in two Disney-inspired trailers. Check them out below!
