N.HOOLYWOOD, headed by the Japanese designer Daisuke Obana, has tapped Vans for a Spring/Summer 2019 capsule collection which was first hinted at on its SS19 runway.

Comprised of a coach jacket and a pair of logo T-shirts, the collection sees a number of plays on the traditional Vans logo and iconography. Whited-out “OFF THE WALL” skateboards and a number of Americana-influenced Vans badges make up the collections logo-heavy look. Being a three-piece capsule collection, N.HOOLYWOOD presents a strong addition to any outfit with its standout T-shirts and contrastingly clean coach jacket, the latter being a piece that nods to Vans’ California-skate heritage.

The capsule comes after N.HOOLYWOOD presented its avantgarde SS19 runway show, where a pair of triple-black suede Vans chukkas were spotted on the catwalk.

T-shirt’s are priced at JPY 8,000 (approx. $70 USD) and the coach jacket is JPY 14,800 (approx. $130 USD), and will be available at all N.HOOLYWOOD stores and online from March 16. Sneakers are expected to release on May 4, but no news has been announced which pair will be dropping just yet.

In other skate-related news, the iconic Thrasher Editor-in-Chief Jake Phelps has passed away.
