A collection that we hold close to our heart and strongly support during Breast Cancer Awareness month. Vans release their latest collection to honour this worldwide campaign. The illustrated designs on the Slip On and Sk8-Hi compassionately promote awareness and showcase the strength of those who have been impacted by Cancer. Money raised through sales of this collection will benefit CoppaFeel! – a UK-based breast cancer awareness charity that promotes early detection and encourages young people to better know their bodies.
“For our charity, this collaboration with Vans is a dream come true. We are thrilled for the opportunity to spread our message across Vans’ audience, as this partnership will allow us to tell more people why checking their boobs is so important, and in return, save lives. CoppaFeel! exists to stamp out the late detection of breast cancer by educating everyone – girls, boys and non-binary pals about their boobs and encourage them to get anything abnormal checked out.” Kris Hallenga, founder of CoppaFeel!
The designers behind this collection paid careful attention to the sensitivity of this work and delivered beautifully designed Vans products.
“The illustration style uses simple shapes and minimal linework to highlight the bold use of color and the unity of interlocking figures. Breast Cancer is a disease that affects everyone regardless of their race or status, and we wanted the women in the illustrations to reflect this reality. By partnering with CoppaFeel!, we can not only showcase the beauty of the women who have breast cancer but provide education to break the taboos of early cancer detection and encourage consumers to check themselves and advocate for their health needs.” Diandre Fuentes, Vans Footwear designer
