The Russian designer partners with Vault on four classic Half Cab colorways with LX updates.
Russia's Gosha Rubchinskiy teams up with Vans Vault for another collaboration this season. Dropping in three colorways, the Authentic LX is constructed of cotton canvas with contrasting stitching with red Gosha branding in cyrillic on the heel cap. A black mid and outsole with red Vans heeltab finishes off all three.
The Gosha Rubchinskiy x Vans Vault Authentic LX for SS16 is available now from Dover Street Market, both in store and online. Retail is $145.
Russian fashion phenom Gosha Rubchinskiy has exploded on to the scene in the last 12 months. He recently unveiled his Spring/Summer 2016 line and the stock photos of the clothing, while very Reebok-heavy, also included one frame with a pair of black/black Authentics with white foxing stripe. While many in the community have had their fill of 2015's Black Sole Epidemic, most would probably make an exception for a Gosha Rubchinskiy Authentic. There are also rumors of white, red, and teal but we haven't seen anything concrete on those yet.
More to follow in the coming days, we are sure.
If you aren't familiar with Russia's designer Gosha Rubchinskiy, you're already behind the power curve. His countless other projects aside, he has made a habit of collaborating with Vans Vault every year like clockwork. What started with a premium leather old skool with gum sole and hints of 3M material, Gosha has now broken the chains and created something with Vault Originals that we haven't seen in a long time, and most have never seen ever.
On this Sk8 Hi OG, he chose premium short haired suede for the upper which is paneled in an entirely tonal fashion. A rubber ollie pad and extended toe cap set this apart from any other OG Sk8 Hi out today and really harkens back to the Style 138 days. Contrast stitching add a nice touch to the uppers while the red and white pairs sit atop a black sole and the black pair, a white. Red Originals heel tab finish off all three.
The Gosha Rubchinskiy x Vans Vault Sk8 Hi OG LX is available now from DSM London and will be trickling out to limited other shops in the coming weeks. They retail for £165.00 or nearly $260.
Young Russian fashion designer Gosha Rubchinskiy is quickly becoming a common name on spoken in major fashion houses and haute boutiques around the globe. When he collaborated with Vault last summer to create the Old Skool LX, it left many of us clamoring for a pair.
Gosha took to Instagram last year to show us a taste of the Style 36 LX he has planned for this season. The photo, however, was quickly deleted. He then outfitted his models with pairs during the preview of his 2015 line. It also appears that he will be dropping a printed two-tone Slip-On LX alongside the Style 36.
With the fashion season fast approaching, we expect to see official photos and release dates on these pairs soon. Stick with us for more information as it becomes available.
