Since 2014, Vans and Opening Ceremony continue to join forces to celebrate creative expression and collaboration.
Founded in 2002, Opening Ceremony has distinguished itself as a multi-brand retailer in the name of creativity, exploration and friendship, always representing the unique perspectives of different people and countries around the world. Opening Ceremony founders Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, both well-deserved stylists, have given voice to many and crossed borders often far beyond the world of fashion. The founders of Opening Ceremony started with Vans' signature checkerboard print, revisiting it with an abstract python and leopard pattern applied to shoes and clothing. On the canvas of Vans' original boat shoes, the Authentic, Opening Ceremony has created a repeated integral motif that plays on positive and negative spaces, harmoniously combining python and leopard-print decorations on the upper and sole of each shoes.
