Last week, the Vans OTW team spent some time in Asia, stopping over in Shanghai for the release of the Fall 2010 collection before continuing on to Tokyo to shoot an upcoming campaign. The crew of Mr. Cartoon, Eric Elms, Dimitri Coste, and The Blackouts (Ako and Atiba Jefferson) threw down on the reg, kicking things off in style at KIN in Shanghai. This gallery event showed work by each of the artists and included a DJ set throwdown by the Blackouts. Hit the jump to see photos of the work, including a mural by Mr. Cartoon and images of the Fall 2010 Vans OTW sneakers.
