A new three-way collaboration between Supreme, Jean Paul Gaultier and Vans is bringing a new designer spin to two classic Vans silhouettes: the Chukka Pro and Era Pro.

Floral prints dominate the sneakers as both styles have a canvas upper with floral designs along the toe, sides, and heel, as well as a black leather lining, black outsole, and insoles that display all of the brands in the collaboration.

Each style comes in the same two colorways of burgundy and black, and black and light pink.

“I wanted something very, very alive,” Jean Paul Gaultier explained to the New Yorker about the line. “I didn’t want something dead—a museum can seem dead, the clothes are very old, it’s like a funeral."

He says his inspirations were “flesh, ethnicity, different kinds of global beauty, cinema, my interest with Madonna, tattoos, the Parisienne, the male as object, all that kind of thing.”

Other pieces in the Jean Paul Gaultier x Supreme line include a double breasted blazer, cargo suit pant, cargo suit vest, plaid faux fur coat, trucker jackets, rayon shirts, printed jeans, hoodies, sweatpants, Le Male fragrance, and accessories.

The collection will be available in-store on April 11th in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, London, and Paris at 11 a.m. local time, and online the same day at 11 a.m. EST and BST, but will drop two days later on the 13th in Japan.
