ASAP Rocky, PacSun and Vans Launch ASAP Worldwide Slip-Ons Collaboration
For the second drop of their collaboration with guest art director ASAP Rocky, PacSun is teaming up with Vans.
Launched under the nickname ASAP Worldwide, the latest entry in the PacSun and Vans partnership features new make-ups of the Classic Slip-On and Classic Slip-On Mule. The design shown extends over the flame pattern made by Rocky since the first version.
Both styles are reworked in black canvas. The Slip-On adds the ‘Jazz’ side stripe previously seen on the Old Skool, while both models feature a co-branded footbed (appropriately flame-filled) and a contrasting white toe cap.
âVans slip-ons are classics,â Rocky said in a statement Wednesday. âIt was cool to give my own touch to a shoe that I’ve always loved. These fit [with] all.”
PacSun president Brie Olson, meanwhile, said it was “really inspiring” to see Rocky put his own spin on the brand since being named guest art director.
âAs a long-time Pacsun partner until now as guest art director, it has been a real pleasure to collaborate to give our customers and fans the opportunity to purchase his merchandise from Pacsun,â said Olson.
Take a closer look at the new drop below:
When he first took on the role of PacSun, the first of its kind, in July, Rocky said the partnership was special to him as it brought together a number of heritage brands and his individual roots. Looking ahead, Rocky also told fans to expect releases from the collaboration that are both “nostalgic and forward-thinking.”
The ASAP Worldwide Classic Slip-On and Classic Slip-On Mule will be available at PacSun and Vans locations, as well as PacSun and Vans stores in the United States from September 16.
In November, Rocky will celebrate 10 years of his Live. Love. as quickly as possible Headlining the 2021 edition of ComplexCon. Rocky’s opening is the Glow on-creation of the hardcore group Turnstile.
