An effortless California aesthetic informs these wearable collector's items.

A shop called Union was originally founded in NYC, but later opened new doors in L.A. Now the shop on Los Angeles’s La Brea Blvd. is the only one that remains. Lucky for all of us, their unique and dynamic product offering is available online.

Union recently teamed up with another California staple, Vans, to release a mix of limited-edition sneakers. The three variations take one key color and cover everything from the soles to the canvas to the shoelaces with it. The results are collector’s items, but ones that you will be far too tempted to wear to ever leave them in the closet.

Along with the sneakers, Union released accompanying tees and hats, all with an effortless California aesthetic to them. While we perused Union’s current product offering, we found a few more items that should be considered must haves for spring. Among them, the Florida Face Pullover by Acne Studios, in cotton candy pink, and a blanket we can’t quite decide if we would ever consider using, or just hanging on the wall as a very stylish thing to look at.
