They say April showers bring May flowers so for spring ’13 Supreme and Vans are coming together again for a floral footwear collection. The “Power, Corruption & Lies” line takes cues from the cover of British rockers New Order’s album of the same name, and the work of French painter Henri Fantin-Latour. Odd mix, interesting result.
The combo makes for a floral arrangement-like upper on the canvas Era and Chukka models, while the SK8-Hi sports a suede toe box, offset with canvas and leather elements. All three feature bright red insoles, leather lining and white vulcanized soles. “Power, Corruption & Lies” is out now at New York, LA and London Supreme locations and online, with Japan set to see release Mar. 9.
