Chicago sneaker/fashion boutique Saint Alfred has announced their upcoming collaboration with Vans Vault. The two previously partnered up on a Summer 2017 collab which involved the Vans Era in three colorways.

The Summer 2019 collab was announced with an illustration by Ben Marcus of an alien life-form holding a flag in front of a futuristic city backdrop. Based on the caption “You have reached the gates of the city. Your access is…”, it seems like the being is a gatekeeper to a utopia of some sort.

Saint Alfred’s general manager Frank Digiovanni talks about the collab in the Instagram post below. Stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for more info on the Saint Alfred x Vans Vault Summer 2019 collab.

(It’s been awhile) One of the most enjoyable aspects of what I do is have the opportunity to partner with brands that I truly respect and develop special projects. Working alongside their teams and with help from Tizzy in HI on the tech, from concept to design to sample to the final object, we develop these special projects. The second part of this process is bringing these objects to life. Clay Hickson connected me with Ben Marcus and another curated collaborative process unfolds. We are pretty excited to begin. So without further delay… “You have reached the gates of the city. Your access is…” Saint Alfred x Vans Vault Summer 2019 coming soon… :) (art by @ben__marcus) #saintalfred #chicago #vansvault #vanscollab #enjoyyourtrip
