THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS
Vans invites all ghouls, ghosts and goblins to celebrate the holidays with Halloween Town’s most beloved characters, announcing the release of a special collection inspired by Disney Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas”.
With a 10-piece footwear offering complimented by a range of apparel and accessories, Vans designers highlight a variety of film moments and character bounding interpretations that honors Vans and Disney’s long collaboration. The Vans and Disney Tim Burton’s “A Nightmare Before Christmas” collection goes on-sale October 4 and invites fans to step into the imagination and artistry of the cult-classic film. Arguably the most iconic scene, Jack’s Lament is featured on the Sk8-Hi with each of the four panels showcasing a frame from Jack’s walk through the Halloween Town cemetery. A special message that reads “Nice Work, Bone Daddy” on the inside collar completes the design. Additionally, the Jack Pull Over Hoodie features a special rendition of Jack’s Lament with a Checkerboard spiral hill.
Disney bounding fans can channel the film’s beloved couple, Jack Skellington and Sally. The Pumpkin King’s ghostly suit including cat and bat wing applique is mimicked on the Classic Slip-On, while Dr. Finkelstein’s master humanoid creation, Sally, receives her very own Era Stacked silhouette and Sally Patchwork Crew. Inspired by her very creation, each style is collaged with various prints from her dress while the Era Stacked features hand-stitched detailed as a nod to Sally’s unique beauty.
The Classic Slip-On and long sleeve tee will showcase emblematic elements from Oogie Boogie’s underground lair, including dice and skull graphics on the sidewall and sleeves of each silhouette. Honoring his place in the moonlit night, fans will find Oogie Boogie’s shadow peeking from the sidewall of the Classic Slip-On. Not to be forgotten, Oogie Boogie’s trio of henchmen – Lock, Shock and Barrel can be found on the Old Skool and panels of an Era.
Vans will combine all-day comfort and classic style with the ComfyCush Authentic which will feature all of the characters from the film layered on a Checkerboard backdrop. Halloween Town favorites can be found through a variety of different designs and product offerings available for fans of all ages with friendly features including elastic laces, zip closure and glow-in-the-dark elements made for the youngest ghouls of Halloween Town.
