Taka Hayashi Interview

Taka Hayashi Interview

Last Thursday evening, Taka Hayashi presented his original artwork in ink and watercolor, as well as a preview of his Spring 13 footwear and debut apparel collection in a special trunk show at The General. Taka Hayashi’s work for Vans represents the highest level of design in the Vans collections, utilizing innovative materials and premium leathers with a sophisticated aesthetic. He is constantly pushing conventions in sneaker design, approaching footwear design almost as a sculptural practice.

Thank you to everyone who came out to the event on Thursday, and of course a very special thanks to Taka and Vans. We had a chance to sit down with Taka while he was in New York to talk about some of his inspirations and what it’s like to design for Vans. Enjoy.
