The high-end scarf company gets mashed up with the streetwear legends for an unexpected new exclusive design line.

With the steady stream of collaborations we’ve been seeing over the years it’s pretty hard to still get excited about a new effort being rolled out. However, there’s something enticing about the newest Vans x Hermes team up, the very least being that you can’t actually buy them. Recently, these bespoke Vans, which were actually made by Vans for TV personality and design aficionado Robert Verdi, repurposed out of his own personal Hermes scarf collection.

As a little back-note for the un-initiated, Hermes silk scarves are widely regarded as the highest quality, best patterned, and over-all most coveted printed scarves in the world. Generally retailing around $400 (at a lower than average price point), vintage ones are often passed down through generations– becoming priceless collectors’ pieces along the way. As for Vans, these skatepark staples need no introduction. Though not an official collaboration between the brands, the entire prospect seems somehow refreshing and new. Perhaps sometime soon we might see a Chanel x Converse collaboration?

However, we’re definitely not holding our breath.
