According to Vans, Purlicue’s philosophy of design emphasizes “Laid Back, Not Lazy as an authentic attitude of life and creative self-expression,” a look the ad campaign pulls off without a hitch. The colorful collection features the “Off the Wall” tagline, exaggerated cotton shoelaces, and the traditional Chinese greeting, “The Fat Year.”
