Leading with a sense of DIY and empowered by creative expression, Vault by Vans has partnered with Brooklyn-based Krink. Krink began as the first ink and paint market brand for graffiti writers and grew exponentially into an international art supply brand with continually expanding collections of apparel, artist tools and accessories. Inspired by Krink's founder, Craig Costello, who grew up writing graffiti, skateboarding, and listening to punk and hip-hop, DIY sensibility informed much of what he and his community did in their youth. These core tenants influenced the early beginning of Krink and have remained an important part of the brand's ethos. This collaboration with Vault by Vans celebrates these creative communities through functional design.
Krink is rooted in making tools through modification and repurposing. From custom inks and paints to specialty delivery systems, Krink is dedicated to invention and creativity, while bringing functionality with art and design. This philosophy is carried through to the three-piece apparel assortment that includes Vault by Vans x Krink shirt featuring a custom tag created by Costello, while the Photo Shirt features a photo from Costello’s archives of a jacket he modified – sewing in a hidden pocket to stash paint and markers. The photo serves as inspiration for the Vault x Krink Drill Chore Coat, which brings the stash pocket to life. The tonal black shell includes two interior 3M reflective pockets with contrasting stitches visible on the exterior, a nod to Costello’s original diy sewing.
