Paris Fashion Week already has a buzz and turns one of the world's best cities into even more a hotspot. We were excited to be in Paris this past weekend for a special showcase and worldwide launch party for the Takashi Murakami x Vans Vault collection at Galerie Perrotin's Hotel du Grand Veneur space in the Le Marais neighborhood. Showcasing a special talk with Takashi, the entire collection of shoes, clothing, decks and some custom-artwork from the artist, it was a great reason to enjoy Paris for a few days.

When you walk into the studio of Takashi Murakami on the outskirts of Tokyo, there is a meticulously arranged lineup of shoes that belong to the staff in the building. As is customary, visitors remove their shoes and wear a pair of sandals provided for them. To the left of the entryway, you are struck by a dozen or so pairs of classic, eggshell white Vans Slip-Ons. The owner of these is obvious: Murakami has a very particular taste.

The 1970s must have been a weird time. I wouldn't really know because I wasn't born in the '70s, but it seemed like a time where a lot of shit was being worked out. Musically, you had your Bowies to disco, disco to punk, and a whole lotta Pink Floyd in there, too. Which is fine, some of it good. Hey, I love Fleetwood Mac. And did we mention cocaine? There was a lot of that. Fashion-wise, again, lots of shit was getting worked out.
