VANS X TYSON PETERSON: MICRO-DAZED PACK
Retro-inspired head-to-toe collection showcases Tyson’s offbeat style
Vans and Tyson Peterson have teamed up to create a new collection that’s just as eclectic as the skater himself. Known for his floaty, boundary-pushing skate approach, as well as his thrifted fashion sense, Tyson curates Vans’ Micro-Dazed Pack, showcasing his personal style and Florida roots, and bringing a trippy influence to the retro-inspired collection.
The Drill Chore coat leads this pack with elements like corduroy and patches that add vintage styling to this on-trend silhouette, which is offered in two colorways. A port royale corduroy chore coat offers a flower patch on the oversize chest pocket, while a psychedelic black version of the coat features a warped and wavy take on Vans’ classic Checkerboard pattern, “Off The Wall” in distorted lettering on the back shoulder, a dazed sunflower down the sleeve, and a strolling mushroom patch on the chest pocket.
Four T-shirts also come to life within the collection, including an antique white tee with a crocodile graphic on the front, a black tee and antique white long sleeve tee both featuring cracked egg graphics, and a port and grey striped ringer with a flower patch. A retro short sleeve woven shirt with a port-colored flower pattern instantly elevates the look, and a Micro-Dazed tote carries over the same crocodile, dazed sunflower, mushroom and cracked egg graphics, along with a retro-flower-print patch. Corduroy cargo pants in port royale round out the collection, along with a dazed sunflower beanie with a Checkerboard cuff, and a black mock neck crew fleece pullover with Checkerboard around the collar and a flower patch on the chest.
Melbourne, Florida native and current Long Beach, California resident Tyson Peterson burst onto the skate scene, impressing with mixed tech and a liquid execution. Since he was featured as one to watch in The Skateboard Mag’s Next Wave video and print feature, Tyson continues to turn heads with his offbeat fashion sense and skate style which translates as well to the street as it does in a park or contest. All of this shines through in his latest collaboration with Vans.
The Micro-Dazed Pack by Tyson Peterson is available now at Vans retailers and online.
