There is good news for you. Iconic skatewear brand Vans has collaborated with maker of chef gear Hedley & Bennett on a capsule collection of aprons and sneakers.
Collection is available online at both Hadley & Bennett‘s and Vans‘ websites, the lineup features the classic Vans sneakers in a water-repellent navy blue fabric with rainbow soles. “The pops of color are symbolic of creativity and the magic that comes with it every day,” Hedley & Bennett founder and CEO Ellen Bennett said in a statement. “Transferring that onto the soles of the shoes literally imbues the soles with soul; they’re subtle on the exterior, but there’s a reminder underneath it all to be unique, be whimsical, be you.” Both pairs of sneakers were designed specifically for people who are on their feet.
As for that apron ($85), it combines Vans’ signature checkerboard print with H&B’s eight-ounce stretch denim, and includes a chest pocket, two lap pockets, an adjustable neck strap, and brass hardware. And this isn’t the last collab of 2018 for Hedley & Bennett—the company is teaming up with L.A. linen label Parachute on a line of kitchen textiles, set to launch in “about three weeks.” “We’re doing these kitchen towels that are beautiful, effective and non-linty and the most sexy … potholders you’ve ever seen in your life,” Bennett told the L.A. Times of the collection. “Who says that about a potholder?”
