House of Vans celebrates its tenth anniversary with a new book charting art, music and photography

“House of Vans, in all of its forms manifested over the past decade,” says Doug Palladini, Vans global brand president, in the foreword of the book, “is magical; one of those unicorns, often imitated but never duplicated. From open mic MC’s to Mos Def… skate lessons for the little ones to massive demos from pros… from old(ish) Television and Blondie to the new(ish) Speedy Ortiz and Bully gigs. From winter coat drives to House Parties. House of Vans yields more great memories… and more sheer joy per square foot than any other experiential platform in existence.”
Metallica, Public Enemy, Nas, Foo Fighters, Anderson .Paak, and Blondie have been just a few to headline House of Vans’s global stages, in addition to hosting artists and skate legends from around the world. Now, for its fanbase, Vans has released a one-of-a-kind book charting visual mementos of the last ten years of the House of Vans. The book announcement came just before the re-launch of the London House of Vans, which opened again on 4 November with an event hosted in partnership with Vice. And throughout November, the London venue will be celebrating ten years of House of Vans with an exhibition in its underground gallery space.
