VANS X SCI-FI FANTASY: JERRY HSU SHAPES LTD-ED SKATE CAPSULE

01.07.2020


Founded on creative self-expression, Vans leans into Jerry Hsu’s mind-melting world of Sci-Fi and the places and eras in which he draws inspiration, recently captured in a short film following his creative process, and the latest limited-edition collection, Vans LTD x Sci-Fi Fantasy.

The collection leads with a two-tone Sk8-Hi Pro that takes direction from a pair of vintage shoes, reflected in the modern execution of retro colourways. Sci-Fi’s “X” logo —a nod to the brand’s affinity for ’90s digital tech designs – appears on the quarter of the shoe, as well as across a jersey and hat in the collection. On the heel cup, “Sci-Fi” is printed on the left and “Fantasy” on the right.

Jerry also puts his spin on the Old Skool Pro in true blue and green. A similar primary colour palette carries over to the Vans x Sci-Fi Fantasy jersey, a vintage take on an athletic silhouette inspired by Jerry’s own collections from the ’90s. “Generic Technology” is printed across the chest in Chinese, a common theme appearing across T-Shirts and hoodies since the brand’s inception.

For Jerry, Sci-Fi Fantasy represents the opportunity to be creative in a different way. The Vans LTD x Sci-Fi Fantasy collection embraces that notion, injecting the brand’s simplistic, progressive style into a fresh offering.
