Ten years ago, FDMTL was founded in the denim capital of the world, Okayama, Japan. Since then, they have become well known for producing jeans with specific detailing and hand tooling not found anywhere else. Their patchwork accents are renowned. With that in mind, FDMTL has partnered with Vans to produce and Era and Slip On that is slated to drop during the Spring season of 2016.
From the shots we have from Fashion Week, it looks like every inch of available real estate has been given special consideration by FDMTL. The Slip Ons are of special note with all-over patchwork swatches sewn on. And it appears that both will come in exclusive FDMTL packaging.
The FDMTL x Vans Era and Slip On are on track to arrive at select Japanese stockists in Spring 2016. No other info is available, but given that this company hails from Japan, we aren't placing any bets that these will make it to the US domestic market in larger numbers.
