Vault by Vans creative Taka Hayashi introduces his first apparel collection and two new footwear silhouettes for his spring 2013 signature line. This season’s offerings are influenced by a combination of timeless style and outdoor functionality.The vintage-inspired TH Football Shirt and TH Raglan Shirt are premium basics comprised of heavyweight slub cotton with buttoned chest pockets. Indigenous striping finishes the three-quarter sleeve Raglan for additional detailing. Accompanying this selection of tees are the TH Varsity Jacket, TH Army Pant and TH Selvedge Jean which are all “Made in the USA.” The Varsity Jacket blends the classic bomber build with cyclist utility in mind exhibiting waxed canvas exteriors, taffeta lining and rear flap storage compartment. The olive Army Pant and raw indigo Selvedge Jean complete Hayashi’s apparel assortment with selvedge tailoring and suspender button adornments. Taka Hayashi apparel ships this March to key Vault by Vans retailers.
The TH Engineer Boot Zip LX is a revamp of Taka’s previous TH Engineer Boot LX. Taka updates the crepe-soled design with mountaineering styling cues, rebuilding the boot on a Vibram outsole with a combination of water-resistant waxed suede and Horween leather uppers. Fleece lining and heel zip closure finish the Havana Brown and Perla colorways of each boot. The TH Cornice LX debuts this spring in Puce and Tortoise Shell renderings. The mid-top combines the aesthetic of native and hiking footwear, presenting a multi-paneled moc-toe sneaker with D-ring lacing hardware, Horween leather sideguard and ikat pattern ankle wrap. The TH Cornice LX and TH Engineer Boot Zip LX are available now at select Vault by Vans stockists.
