“Vans has been a long-time creative partner of ours, and we’re so excited to collaborate on their iconic print this season,” says Opening Ceremony creative director Humberto Leon. “For this new capsule collection, Carol and I are inspired to reinvent the checkerboard, taking a new graphic approach to Vans’ classic pattern.”
