Form(er) and Function
The New Vans x Former Collab Speaks Volumes in Calculated Cuneiform
Not unlike the logo-syllabic inscriptions etched across the latest Vans collaboration, Dane Reynolds’ brand-child, Former, is one best described without words.
Through a mashup of raw, glyphic design features, highly-considered details, and an understated color palette, we’re able to further understand the function-meets-fashion-meets-function-focused minds of the latter (Former) in this offering from the surf world’s favorite collab couple.
Just five styles deep, the complexity of this limited collection is found in its Dane-level technical details, coolly apparent branding, and the premium materials that both brands are synonymous with.
Realized in a concise range of rugged yet refined outerwear, footwear, and wardrobe essentials, each piece from the Vans x Former collab is designed for the cooler weather and wave-heavy seasons ahead.
Available now at Vans retail locations, select Vans partner retailers, and vans.com/surf.
