Vans, the world leader in skateboarding for over 50 years, and Rassvet (PACCBET), Russia’s leading skate and fashion brand, have joined forces on a signature shoe in two colours and a collection of premium apparel and accessories.

Rassvet was founded in 2016 by a close-knit group of skateboarders led by multidisciplinary artist Gosha Rubchinskiy and professional skateboarder Tolia Titaev. PACCBET translates as dawn or sunrise in Russian, which is fully reflected in the brand’s status as a leader of the new wave of the Russian skate scene. Rassvet has made a global impact by representing the aesthetic, style and visual language of the new generation of Russian skateboarders through co-founder Gosha‘s re-appropriation and re-engineering of everyday skatewear classics.

With strong shared cultural values and mutual skate athletes such as Val Bauer, Joseph Biais, Ignat Mazurin, Lilian Fev, Igor Smirnov, Alix Malnati and Kiril Gurin, this is an elevated partnership that Vans is more than proud to be a part of.

Con la nueva zapatilla de Vans, la Skate Bold, en dos colores característicos, ambos con sutiles estampados laterales, plantillas Checkerboard y una etiqueta PACCBET tejida en oro en la lengüeta. Se complementan con costuras doradas y logotipos en relieve, que representan la herencia del skate de PACCBET y la dirección de la moda.

For the apparel collection, Vans and Rassvet elevate the game with a reversible hero jacket made from heavyweight oxford twill with signature printed artwork and a striking Vans Off The Wall graphic tee. This premium clothing range is completed with a heavy duty skate travel bag; allowing you to travel from Russia to the rest of the world.

 

To celebrate the collaboration, cyclists from Team Vans and Rassvet met in Moscow and on the Black Sea coast in Novorossiisk for a two-week trip. The vibrations of the seaside resort and the busy streets of the Russian capital shaped this unique video portrait of the world’s largest country.

The Vans x Rassvet (PACCBET) collection will be available at Dover Street Market and select Vans Europe Skate shops from 23 September and at Vans North American Skate shops and Vans.com in October.
