Vans x Neil Blender
In the early-to-mid 80’s, Neil Blender left his footprint in skate history with his iconic artwork that was as unique and inspiring as his style of skateboarding. He was one of the pioneers of skaters doing their own art and his influence has undeniably set the tone for generations of artists in the action sports community to this day. A longtime fan of Blender, Joel Tudor tapped into Neil this spring to create artwork for a small collection of his signature apparel styles for Vans including a tank, tees and boardshort, all featuring custom designs. This capsule marks the beginning of a series of exciting projects between Vans and Neil Blender. www.vansapparel.com
