Back in 2016, Japanese independent denim brand FDMTL celebrated its 10th anniversary in style with a swanky Spring/Summer collection full of patchwork items. Launched at Dover Street Market Ginza, a highlight of the release, which also included a vintage Herman Miller chair and a tote bag collaboration with Jam Home Made, was a footwear project with Vans.
A Vans Era and a Vans Slip-On each featured an assortment of Indigo dyed fabrics on uppers featuring woven patchwork designs. Over time, the Indigo coloring wears off, giving the respective kicks its very own patina. FDMTL branding appears on the heels. Here, we highlight the Slip-On version.
