Vans X Peanuts Collaboration

Charles M. Schulz’s Peanuts characters have found an afterlife in fashion. The characters – which of course count the ever-maligned-but-adorable Charlie Brown, his somewhat Machiavellian pet dog Snoopy and his pals Peppermint Patty, Lucy and Linus and of course Woodstock – were cultural icons in their own right in the 1960s. In fact,such were their popularity that ‘Charlie Brown’ and ‘Snoopy’ were the names given to the command and lunar module for Apollo in 1969.

Today, the characters continue to represent innocence and friendship as the language of childhood – a lexicon that we can only really borrow in the guise of nostalgia as adults. In a nutshell, Peanut characters give us a warm fuzzy feeling inside, in a way that only retro cartoons can achieve.

It’s no wonder then that Alessandro Michele featured Snoopy and Woodstock on a capsule collection for Fall 2016. The Rodnik Bank also borrowed the Peanuts gang for a couple of capsule collections in 2013 and 2016, the latter one leading to a collaboration with Bamford watches via 12 limited edition ‘Snoopy’  Rolex Datejust timepieces.

Vans X Peanuts Collaboration

The longest standing Peanuts partnership however, was first launched by Vans in the early 1980s. This collaboration had a sequel a couple of years ago and now it’s back for a third instalment. A new Off The Wall collection is designed with vintage illustrations from the late ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s, including a skating Snoopy (ears whizzing in the wind), a pink print pattern featuring a loved-up Lucy smooching Chuck and his pet beagle and a birdie themed slip-on for fans of Snoopy’s yellow feathered sidekick, Woodstock. The collection also includes apparel ranging from wind-proof jackets and sweats to beanies and flip flops. The caps and rucksacks are pretty cool too. Oh for a life lazying on top of a dog house!
