Vault by Vans team up with influential, award-winning photographer Jim Goldberg, on a capsule collection that celebrates the seminal, 1995 work, Raised by Wolves. A photographic chronicle encompassing the years 1985 through 1995, Raised by Wolves documents the realities of everyday life for teenage runaways on the streets of Los Angeles and San Francisco. Raised by Wolves is considered a definitive statement on the meat grinder like effect that American society exerts on those who fall through its cracks, and of the human struggle to survive.
The collection’s footwear is inspired by memorable visual elements of Raised by Wolves. Acid washed denim, scrawled journal and scrapbook entries, discarded mattresses and television static adorn classic silhouettes in the Sk8-Hi, Slip-On and Old Skool. These motifs are carried over to the collection’s apparel, where all-over print pieces are joined by graphic tees featuring Goldberg’s photography.
