Sk8 or Die!

In her time at Vans, Noelle had the privilege to design for the Vans Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 capsule "Cali Collection". Cali Collection showcased artisan crafted surf-style with a vintage feel and was supported by a coordinating line of footwear and accessories, all of which featured cotton heavy, pigment dyed fabrics and manufactured-sun faded treatments.


The Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 OTW Collection was an opportunity for Noelle to design into the streetwear aesthetic, and explore Vans influence as a brand in that market. This collection used materials such as veggie leather, leather, tweeded wools, and luxury knits. A piece even scored some small screen time on a 2014 episode of the hit show Glee! 

The AV78 Capsule Collection was created specifically for pro skater, Anthony Van Englen, which showcased his workwear inspired style. Higher end durable fabrications like heavy duck canvas and selvedge denim  were used in this assortment.

All were boutique collections that were sold in high end skate shops and Fred Segal in LA, DQM in NYC, and various other skate influenced cities and streetwear shops  around the world.
