A couple weeks ago I went at the Office Boyz event in Big Bear. I noticed several people wearing the 686 and Levi’s limited edition snow pants and I was saying how I really liked the look of them. I thought they were very stylish and would definitely be something that could allows you to wear them off the mountain and into the streets that night.
Now, less then two weeks later I read about the Vans and 7 for all mankind partner and I wasn’t suprized to see another brand to do a similar collaboration.
The Vans x 7 For All Mankind collaboration is part of an extensive outerwear collection for both men and women that is said fuses Vans’ SoCal mountain styling with the most advanced technology to create versatile pieces that easily take you from the harshest mountain conditions to the town streets that night.
Strategic Partnerships are becoming more and more prevalent and this collaborations is another example of the non-endemic fashion world entering the snowboarding world. How well do you think they will sell?
Available in early fall 2009, the Vans x 7 For All Mankind outerwear pant will be sold worldwide at select board shops.
