Vans has teamed up with artist Curtis Kulig, famous for the LOVE ME tags across the streets of Los Angeles, New York and Tokyo for its Spring 2013 Classics Collection. The three-piece capsule collection hits stores on February 1st just in time for Valentine’s day.
LOVE ME is featured in three distinct looks on Vans Classics. The Vans iconic red Authentic is adorned with an all over embroidered LOVE ME while the Checkerboard Slip-On becomes the canvas to a paint splatter design. Finally, the SK8-Hi Slim, a women’s specific style, features an oversize embroidered LOVE ME on the side panel.
In addition, Vans will be hosting bicoastal events in celebration of this special collaboration. This Friday, February 1st, Curtis will be hanging out at the Space15Twenty Urban Outfitters in Los Angeles with a curated LOVE ME pop-up and Polaroid exhibition. The night will feature DJ Sets from Aska from ESP and a special live performance by Sky Ferreira. Curtis will then head back to his current hometown of New York City on February 14th to celebrate the day of love at the Vans DQM General. Guests can look forward to a LOVE ME kissing booth, music, a Minx Nails x LOVE ME nail station as well as a signature neon LOVE ME sign at each event. If you can’t make the celebrations, you can send your special someone a LOVE ME message through the month of February with e-postcards designed by Curtis.
