Vans has linked with Boston-based retailer Bodega on a two silhouette capsule, titled “Sub Rosa,” an age-old phrase denoting discretion and secrecy. Comprised of an Old Skool and Mid Skool, there is a black and white version of each shoe, both of which are marked by a truly lovely rose graphic.
Explaining the choice behind the rose motif, Bodega explained it’s rooted in romance: “The Sub Rosa design is a discreet, tasteful way to let your partner know that you are adventurous and up for anything, while also being sensitive and aware of their needs.”
Each shoe is packaged in a Sub Rosa box, which includes a complimentary calendar and a rose. The Old Skool shoe is priced at $90 and the Mid Skool is $100.
Vans Bodega “Sub Rosa” collection will release at Bodega, bdgastore.com and ComplexCon on November 4, 2017 at 10:00 AM local time.
