The Vault by Vans x Patta ‘Mean Eyed Cats’ pack originated as a token of appreciation to Patta’s connection with Beams in Japan. The first drop came in 2015 before a follow-up collection came out in 2017. This year, the Vault by Vans x Patta ‘Mean Eyed Cats’ collection includes a diverse range of colourways that has every person covered. Presented on timeless Vans silhouettes such as the Old Skool and Sk8-Hi, the footwear is executed in true Patta fashion with detailing on the taping and upper of the shoe. Bearing the Patta script logo on the upper means you can show everyone who you are running with all held together with custom Patta branded laces as well as a 3 piece series of graphic T-Shirts and a collaborative pair of socks.
Vans started off as a family-owned brand in 1966 and was supported by the local scene in California before becoming a global powerhouse within the lifestyle and skateboarding industries. This resonates with Patta’s identity within contemporary fashion, as their rise was based on supporting the local scenes in music, sports and art before they were recognised beyond their borders. Supporting each other on this collaboration brought out the Mean Eyed Cats and the collection is now available globally.
The Vault by Vans x Patta ‘Mean Eyed Cats’ pack will be available from Patta London, Patta Milano ; Patta Amsterdam from the 16th of July at 13:00 CEST, and at select retailers worldwide July 23rd.
