Karl Lagerfeld is teaming up with Vans for a capsule collection of apparel and footwear launching September 7.

Expect to see Vans' signature checkered pattern remixed with Lagerfeld's side profile, textured boucle fabrics and quilted-leather K motifs, WWD reports.

Though there are no photos yet, the collection promises leather, laceless iterations of Vans' Sk8-Hi and Old Skool designs (AKA the black and white sneaks beloved by bloggers and the street style set), and a leather Classic Slip-On. There'll also be a graphic tee emblazoned with an image of Lagerfeld wearing a Vans checkerboard tie, and bomber jackets and backpacks are also in the mix.

Prices range from Dhs$146 to Dhs$1101 ($40-$300). The collection will be available online and in-store at select Karl Lagerfeld and Vans locations.

The unexpected union proves high fashion's obsession with skate-wear isn't dead just yet. (The collab arrives eight months after Louis Vuitton x Supreme debuted on the runways in January.)
