An American style icon in its own right, Vault by Vans seeks out collaborations with forward-thinking, rule-breaking fashion brands all over the world to create coveted capsules and take Vans’ classic styles to new spheres of creative expression.

Building on the momentum from the first collaboration with LQQK Studio in 2018, Vault by Vans is once again partnering with the Brooklyn-based screen-printing and design collective that has deep roots in art, fashion, skate and music.

Founded by NYC creative Alex Dondero, along with Paul Bryant, Max Feuer, Martin Davis and Joe Garvey, LQQK Studio collaborates with a rotating cast of contributors that remain at the forefront of creative expression. Akin to Vault by Vans’ most cherished limited-run collections, LQQK Studio’s distinctive clothing line quickly gained a cult following, catching the attention of New York’s best style purveyors, music lovers and streetwear aficionados. LQQK Studio represents the convergence of street culture and high fashion, and shares Vans’ design sensibility that combines high and low.

The Vault by Vans x LQQK Studio Collection consists of a six-shoe capsule, all of which feature the Circle V theme that resonated with fans so strongly in 2018. The collection is led by the OG Style 17 Mule LX in honey comb and the OG Chukka LX in burgundy, both of which give a nod to the workwear resurgence in both color and materials. The OG Style 17 Mule LX and OG Chukka LX also come in Splatter ink executions, as well as a natural colorway.

The Vault by Vans x LQQK Studio collaboration will also include three pieces of apparel: a quarter-zip sweater, sweatpants and long sleeve shirt with oversized gradient throwback Vans logo paying homage to the LQQK collective. The quarter-zip and sweatpants are available in black and ash heather, while the long sleeve shirt is available in black and bright orange.

Celebrating the launch of the new Vault by Vans collection with LQQK Studio, NTS Radio is joining forces with both brands to showcase music communities and the diverse collectives who make up the city’s underground music scene in NYC. In what has been a challenging year for creative communities across the world, now is an important moment to uphold and support musicians and creatives globally.

Kicking off on November 17 and continuing through November 21, brace yourself for five consecutive NTS x LQQK Studio radio takeovers. Each day a different NYC collective will present a two hour show on NTS, run in conjunction with in-store zine printing at the Vault by Vans store in NYC on Bowery. The broadcasts will be supported by a one-off zine, A CLOSER LOOK: NYC, which will explore the vital work undertaken by the collectives featured in this collaboration.
