Pacsun announces the second explosive hype drop in collaboration with Guest Artistic Director, A$AP Rocky. The collaboration was first launched under Rocky’s A$AP Worldwide, and the exciting release is again with shoe and retail manufacturer Vans for a new drop. The second drop of this collaboration features two styles, the classic slip-on, and the classic slip-on mule. With Rocky’s favorite style being the old skool, he chose the Sidestripe to feature on the classic slip-on which was shot in new imagery for this launch.
Vans slip on’s are classics – was cool to put my own spin on a shoe that I have always loved. These fit wit [with] everything, said Rocky.
It is truly inspiring watching Rocky use his fashion sense to put his own spin on a brand with so much heritage, said Brie Olson, President of Pacsun. As a longtime partner of Pacsun to now Guest Artistic Director, it has been a real pleasure collaborating to give our customers and his fans the opportunity to purchase his merchandise at Pacsun.
The launch of this release is special as both styles come in black and white with embroidered flame designed by Rocky. As this was also featured in the first drop, it shows Rocky’s continued expression to try new things while still staying nostalgic. The Classic Slip-On is priced at $80 and consumers can also purchase today the Slip-On Mule for $75.
Rocky continues to be a voice for Pacsun designing upcoming partnerships that will continue to resonate with his core consumer. His fashion alignment with the brand will show up in future drops as the brand continues to partner with Rocky to bring new innovative styles to market in other categories including activewear and luxury car merchandise to be announced.
