There’s something to be said about creating, for creativity’s sake alone. Pro skater Jerry Hsu and his small-batch, LA-based apparel brand Sci-Fi Fantasy stand for those principles:
“Once you start worrying too much about what people want – if you just want to be creative and make cool stuff, you shouldn’t let that interfere with what you make.”
A product of the ‘90s, Jerry Hsu and his small-batch brand, Sci-Fi Fantasy, stand for unapologetic, creative self-expression. Vans leans into his mind-melting world to understand the places, eras and principles from which he draws his inspiration.
The collection leads with a two-tone Sk8-Hi Pro that takes direction from a pair of vintage shoes, reflected in the modern execution of retro colorways. Sci-Fi’s “X” logo —a nod to the brand’s affinity for ‘90s digital tech designs — appears on the quarter of the shoe, as well as across a jersey and hat in the collection. On the heel cup, “Sci-Fi” is printed on the left and “Fantasy” on the right.
Jerry also puts his spin on the Old Skool Pro in true blue and green, and the UltraRange Tri-Lock sandal in Sci-Fi Fantasy black. A similar primary color palette carries over to the Vans x Sci-Fi Fantasy jersey, a vintage take on an athletic silhouette inspired by Jerry’s own collections from the ‘90s. “Generic Technology” is printed across the chest in Chinese, a common theme appearing across T-shirts and hoodies since the brand’s inception.
