Endless summers and island vibes serve as the inspiration for Vans’ Surf Supply collection, a laidback lifestyle capsule with strong surf roots. A team-inspired head-to-toe collection in collaboration with three of Vans’ female surfers – Ainara Aymat, Leila Hurst and Karina Rozunko —the Surf Supply collection is available now online and at select Vans retail stores.
Curated by the athletes and inspired by their own personal styles on and off the board, the designs include some of the surfers’ must-have essentials and a mix of elevated basics. The collection was captured through each athlete’s perspective, including European surfer Ainara Aymat on the beautiful volcanic island of Fuerteventura.
“I really wanted to create something that I would wear on a day-to-day basis – something comfortable, easy but with a nod to street style,” says Ainara of the collection. “I was super excited by the boots – they’re so comfortable, I never want to take them off! The shoot in Fuerteventura was even better than I thought – it was an amazing experience to see my own pieces and to bring my ideas to life.”
This season sees the introduction of a brand-new footwear style – the statement Colfax Boot. Ainara’s take on this box leather slip-on silhouette features a subtle Checkerboard detail, which ties back to the Checkboard foxing detail in Leila’s Slip-On SF, a classic Vans icon but with a surf twist. The footwear collection is rounded out with Karina’s Style 36, the early edition of what has now become Vans’ famous Old Skool.
Each of the athletes have chosen pieces that match their own style, giving the apparel collection a personal touch. Key pieces include Ainara’s chino pant in black – a high-waisted, straight leg fit, with pleat detail and snake embroidery on the waistband. Leila’s key look features an oversized denim jacket with a workwear inspired vibe, including her personalized palm tree logo. And Karina’s look is centered around a warm picante colorway which can be found on the Karina scoop tank – a simple cotton jersey – as well as the Cord Backpack.
Additional apparel and accessories from the collection include the Ainara cord woven boxy fit top and the Leila pin tuck denim short, which paired with her denim jacket makes for the perfect coordinated set. Elevated basics such as the Surf Supply half zip fleece, Surf Supply crew tee, slip dress and bucket hat are also featured in this well-rounded collection.
