Finally, some Mastermind pieces you can afford (relatively)

collaborated with @vansjapan coming very soon

A post shared by mastermind JAPAN (@mastermindjapan_official) on

Mastermind Japan posted on instagram announcing a new collaboration with Vans Japan. The capsule collection is made up of a hoodie, a hat, and a pair of Vans, all clad in black. Because Mastermind.

The hoodie brands both logos on it in deep black, whereas the cap only has the mastermind cross skull motif in space black. The Vans Mountain Edition have the mastermind logo on the midsole, cladded in grain leather and zips, in black black.

The hoodie comes in at a slightly damaging USD 140 (approximately RM 590), the hat priced at USD 60 (around RM 240), and sneakers around USD 220 (approximately RM 927). Still comparatively cheap when the Mastermind hoodie in the Isetan Store Lot 10 costs RM 6000 and the Mastermind X Adidas EQT 93/17 mid costs around RM 3000.

While the drop comes only exclusively in Japan on the 13th of October, the web store releases the day after, on the 14th of October. So get ready to break your piggy bank and indulge all things black. If Vans isn’t your fancy, Mastermind may have your answer
