SANKUANZ’s talent lies in interpreting the point in which subculture and fashion collide while flaunting his own “Off The Wall” style. For this collaboration, SANKUANZ developed a unique perspective that showcases the similarities between Vans and SANKUANZ that was designed to represent the unruly personalities. SANKUANZ  captured the crazy spirit of a mad dog in his work and has fearlessly and instinctively designed the collection to encourage more young people to believe in creative expression and stay true to ones self. This theme is embodied through the campaign message ‘DO NOT PET ME I AM AGGRESSIVE’.
