Introducing the 2015 Vans x Seea 2015 Collab!

Introducing the Vans x Seea 2015 collection!

From rushing out the door for dawn patrol to huddling around the beach bonfire, Vans shoes have been on our feet throughout our happiest summer moments. Following up last year's epic first collection, we're excited to present the 2015 Vans x Seea collaboration, now available for future seaside adventures!

Vans footwear designer Lindsay White first discovered Seea in the Fall of 2011 while shopping at Thalia Surf Shop in Laguna Beach, California. Lindsay says she instantly fell in love with Seea’s unique point of view on women’s surfwear and fashionable instinct. She reached out to collaborate with Amanda for a special capsule of women’s shoes in the Vans Surf category, which offers a modern twist on classic styles for people who live a surf-inspired lifestyle.

The result was the Vans x Seea 2014 collection! For the full story of how the first Vans x Seea collab came to be, click HERE.

After the success of last year’s edition, we were stoked to create a second capsule for 2015, inspired by the jungles of greenery under the ocean’s surface and golden California sunsets.

Here, we dive deeper with designer Amanda Chinchelli into the inspiration behind the collection.

SELVA MARINA PRINT

"This original watercolor seaweed print is called Selva Marina, which loosely translates from Italian to “jungle of the sea.” It is wild and powerful like the living jungles in the depths of the sea." - Amanda Chinchelli, Designer of Seea

SUNSET METALLICS

"Seea swimsuits like to play with textures, and the contrast of matte and shiny fabrics. For the Vans Rhea lace-up sneaker, we chose a slubby metallic woven fabric, and tiny gold polka dots against the matte fabric for just the right amount of light-catching shine." - Amanda Chinchelli, Designer of Seea
