The multibrand retailer presented the Qi Pao Pack and an expanded Vault by Vans line on Tuesday on the third floor of its New York flagship at 35 Howard St. in a Vans shop-in-shop by industrial designer Max Lamb.
The Vans x Opening Ceremony range features the sportswear label’s classic slip-on style designed in Chinese silk fabrics in pink, red-gold and black patterns.
The kicks celebrate Opening Ceremony’s Year of China. They retail for $85 and are also available online.
Opening Ceremony founders Carol Lim and Humberto Leon said in a joint statement that the new space presents “the world of Vans through the Opening Ceremony lens.”
“Here we will showcase not only Vans product, but all the special curated collections that tie back to our collaborative nature,” Lim and Leon added. “There is so much more to come!”
At the kickoff event, guests customized blank Vans shoes and Opening Ceremony T-shirts.
Additionally, the new space will house a Club USA capsule collection inspired by ‘80s and ‘90s sportswear, including unisex tanks and tees, a T-shirt dress, caps and souvenir pins. Prices range from $65 to $125.
