The Vans x Seea capsule for spring carries the distinct mark of Seea founder and designer Amanda Chinchelli. After travelling back and forth between her Italian homeland and California, her love for surfing brought her to San Clemente, CA. Feeding off the sea as inspiration, Amanda started Seea to create bathing suits, surf gear and apparel for the soulful female surfer. Italy’s culture, art, and beauty, the Mediterranean and the Pacific oceans, the indelible memory of that first surf trip to Hawaii, and distinct influences of a vintage surf aesthetic can be felt in each Chinchelli piece. With a focus on function, comfort, and eclectic design, Seea brings together handcrafted elegance and feminine heritage flair in bold colors, prints, and graphics.
Vans x Seea showcases the talent and skill of a gifted creative mind equipped with a special sense for the grace and rhythm of the elements that surround her. The Vans Mohikan features fringe detailing and a suede upper distressed with a gold wash that brings subtle shine and comfort to the moccasin. Soft pastels, gold stripes and a fossil texture detail on the Solana silhouette and the Lanai sandal repeat the inspired gesture, each unique and touched by the same vision. As exclusive additions to the Vans women’s Surf Siders assortment, the Vans x Seea collection reflects its places of origin in Italy and California and an unbridled passion for surfing and the seas that connect the globe’s continents.
