The KENZO renaissance is in full swing thanks largely to efforts by Carol Lim and Humberto Leon of NY based, Opening Ceremony. With an already successful four seasons under their belt, the duo can do no wrong.

Originally raised on the West Coast in Los Angeles, the duo saw Californian cult brand Vans as a footwear staple, and so participated in this exciting collaboration between the two contrasting, but equally novel brands.

The three various designs have a release date set for May, June, and July. The limited edition collection will feature Vans in various high fashion formats. Starting with the VANS Era first, seen here in a mix of vibrant blue, white, green, and red, all with a complex mesh-like graphic. A total of seven colorways will be released for both men and women, with a retail cost of around US$125. All will be available in mid-May at Opening Ceremony, and other retail locations worldwide.
