American Fashion Brand Launches Harry Potter-Inspired Collection

Vans fashion brand released a collection that featured footwear, accessories and clothing inspired by Harry Potter's four houses of Hogwarts: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff.

The collection also includes a Dark Arts-themed backpack and a newspaper print shoe, covered with The Daily Prophet clippings.

“Vans and Harry Potter collaborated to conjure up a magical collection of footwear, apparel, and accessories for witches, wizards, and muggles alike,” Vans said in a statement issued in April.

"The footwear, named and styled after each house from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, will feature four exclusive colourways in Vans' classic silhouettes -- a Sk8-Hi for Gryffindor, an Era for Slytherin, Authentic for Ravenclaw and the Classic Slip-On for Hufflepuff," the company added.

Vans is an American brand that initially designs skateboarding shoes and related apparel. The company sponsors surf, snowboarding, BMX, and motocross teams.
