Last night marked the celebration of Vans' collaboration with Japanese artist Yusuke Hanai which took place at Thalia Surf Shop in Laguna Beach. Hanai's artwork was framed throughout the back wall of the Vans room while the collaborative shoes he designed held their own on a the shoe wall. In the middle was the added bonus of a live set played by the Mattson 2.
I had a great time catching up with old friends from Japan, and I even came across some interesting watches in the crowd. Below, you'll see a really cool looking Seiko, and none other than a Sinn EZM1 which I originally learned about through Hodinkee's Talking Watches episode with William Massena this past December.
