If you don't mind taking a scissors to your personal collection of $400-plus Hermes scarves, you, too, can have Vans like this. That's what Robert Verdi—former host of many a defunct TV style show—did, and the results are kind of?well, awesome. Though these one-of-a-kind Vans are totally unsanctioned by either brand, PSFK has a gallery of Verdi's entire bespoke collection that's worth drooling over just a little bit; check it out over there, and then consider the hilarious brainstorming meeting that would take place between the creative directors of the two companies if such a collab were to happen.
