    Even if you never studied art history, chances are you’d know a Van Gogh when you see one. He’s arguably one of the most well-known and influential artists of all time. Now? We’ll be able to wear some of his most renowned pieces, thanks to a new collaboration with Vans.

    The iconic skate brand teamed up with the Van Gogh Museum, based in Amsterdam, to select some of the late post-impressionist artist’s most recognized works—including "Skull," "Almond Blossom," "Sunflowers," "Self-Portrait with Artist," and "Old Vineyard with Peasant Woman"—as well as letters he wrote to his brother. From there, they were translated into some of Vans' wearable pieces. The collection is comprised of multiple sneaker styles (including the classic Sk8-Hi and Slip-On styles), T-shirts, hoodies, backpacks, hats, and more—resulting in skeleton-covered sneakers and almond blossom tree-covered bomber jackets.

    The best part of it all? The Van Gogh Museum is dedicating profits from this project to preserving Van Gogh’s legacy and his works so that they will be accessible for generations to come.

    The collection ranges from $40 to $140, and you can shop it starting today at Vans. Take a closer look at the full collection, below.
