Vans has just dropped its Harry Potter collection, proving that even 12 years after the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, J.K. Rowling’s final novel in the series, the magical franchise still lives on.
The collection includes footwear, clothing and accessories inspired by and named after the four houses from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and is available to buy in Europe and the US.
“The footwear, named and styled after each house from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, will feature four exclusive colourways in Vans’ classic silhouettes – an Sk8-Hi for Gryffindor, an Era for Slytherin, Authentic for Ravenclaw and the Classic Slip-On for Hufflepuff,” Vans said in a press release.
The collection also includes a shoe covered in newsprint inspired by the wizarding newspaper, The Daily Prophet, and a “Dark Arts”-themed backpack.
The Harry Potter collection is just the latest of Vans’ pop culture collaborations.
In April, the brand paid tribute to musician David Bowie with the launch of a capsule collection, and in February it launched a collaboration with Led Zeppelin, marking the 50th anniversary of the brand’s self-titled debut album.
