Off the back of its sustainable rendition of the adidas Centennial Low, END. Clothing is looking to continue its collaborative hot streak as we delve into 2024. This time, they have partnered with Vans and decorated Japanese textile label NOMA t.d. to create a selection of footwear and apparel based on archival design.
NOMA t.d., founded in 2005 by Masako Noguchi and Takuma Sasaki, is known for its hand-drawn textiles and custom patterns. Their distinct aesthetic skillfully combines the contemporary and traditional elements. Applying this approach to textile design, NOMA t.d. and END. have infused their unique touch throughout the collection, merging traditional prints with a modern, skate-inspired flair.
The collection includes Vans’ iconic skate-inspired sneakers such as the Authentic, the Classic Slip-On, and the Sk8-Mid, each adorned with an eye-catching floral bandana pattern on the uppers. The apparel portion of the collaboration features workwear jackets, pants, hoodies, and tees, all equipped with the floral pattern or bold logo imprints.
For those interested in this collaboration, the collection will be available directly from END. Clothing’s Launches platform on January 26th. So mark your calendars and get ready to add some Japanese textile flair to your wardrobe.
