Tierra Whack, the rapper and R&B singer who’s given us the hit album Whack World, is partnering with household brand Vans to create an exciting collection of cool sneakers and apparel designed in collaboration with longtime stylist Shirley Kurata.
The American artist, who’s also known for dressing outside the lines, is bringing her unique vision and creativity to life in a curated edit of 1980s-inspired styles with key elements of the Vans brand heritage. “It was an amazing experience to be able to take what I do with music and apply it to fashion,” said Whack in a statement. “Making music is all about collaboration and it was great to work with Shirley and with Vans to give people a collection they can feel free in.” Based on the rapper’s irreverent approach to music and fashion, we can expect a playful mix of colors, shapes, patterns, and catchy phrases that promote creativity and self-expression.
We don’t know about you, but we need these joyful pieces in our closets. The Vans x Tierra Whack collection will be available on Vans.com and at select Vans retailers starting on Dec. 3. So mark your calendar, and get ready to shop!
