Fashion with a purpose: Vans works together with the charity CoppaFeel! for a limited edition for the month for breast cancer

In order to mark the breast cancer month and to encourage openness about health among young people, the Vans brand has set up a special collaboration without shortage of nipples and breasts.

The 10-piece line of clothing and footwear, which falls on October 1, has sneakers, slip-ons, shirts and bags, all with striking prints and designs with & # 39; lady lumps & # 39; theme.

The proceeds from the collection will go to the British charity CoppaFeel !, and both parties hope the collection will encourage young people to teach themselves how to check their breasts while making a powerful fashion statement.

One of the striking pieces is a breasty update to the Sk8-Hi sneaker, a staple style for the California-based brand that was founded in 1966. However, this version has illustrations of topless women with different skin tones that adorn the sides.

There is also a new version of the Slip-On checkerboard, a limited edition twist with miniature squares in different shades that evoke different skin tones. An illustration on the rubber sole has nipple iconography, breasts in various shapes and hands check for lumps.

Another Slip-On is adorned with the phrase & # 39; You Got This & # 39; – with nipples in the O & # 39; s – a recurring motto that can be seen throughout the collection.

The Era sneaker – which was first launched in 1976 – has also received a makeover. For the collection it has been redesigned in cream with illustrations of a woman checking her anatomy.

There is also a quirky pair of slides with an almost picasso-like series of women of all shapes and sizes that enclose their breasts.

Each selection of shoes is stamped with an update of the Vans logo, which is now accompanied by a cute line drawing in which the nipple of one breast is replaced by a small heart.

In addition to shoes, there are a few items of clothing and accessories in the range.

There are two T-shirts: one white with a checkerboard of skin tones and an illustration panel, and another in a naked shade with a sketch of a pair of breasts everywhere.

According to a release, $ 200,000 of the proceeds from the collection will be donated to CoppaFeel!

Founded by Kristin Hallenga and her twin sister Maren in 2009, the charity is the first initiative that focuses solely on creating awareness among young people with its quirky, light-hearted and relatable messages and campaigns.

& # 39; For our charity, this collaboration with Vans is a dream come true & # 39 ;, said Kristin, who was told she had breast cancer when she was 23.

After finding a lump while living in China abroad, her doctor diagnosed breast cancer – a shock to Kristin, who didn't know that the disease could affect people in their twenties.

& # 39; We welcome the opportunity to spread our message to the Vans audience, as this partnership will allow us to tell more people why checking their breasts is so important and can save lives in return.

& # 39; CoppaFeel! exists to eradicate the late detection of breast cancer by informing everyone – girls, boys and non-binary friends about their breasts and encouraging them to have something abnormal checked. & # 39;
