As a champion of creative expression, Vans is excited for their latest collaboration with Canadian surfer and Vans family member Hanna Scott. Hanna’s ability to navigate the ever-changing cold-water weather conditions at her native Tofino, British Columbia home breaks is second only to her covetable, progressive surf style and creative pursuits that transcend beyond surfing, ranging from art, design, and music. For her latest collection with Vans, Hanna drew inspiration from cold-weather destinations and her own original watercolor paintings to create a head-to-toe look that’s functional and provides style and comfort in sub-degree temps.
An accompanying apparel kit includes the Hanna Scott MTE-1 bomber-style jacket with a DuPont™ Serona® 1K DWR fill, front-zip closure, colorblocked panels, and polar fleece lining at the hood and body to keep things toasty.
“I wanted to have a super warm jacket in the collection because where I live, even when it’s warm, it’s often quite cold,” Hanna explained. “One time in the middle of last winter I miscalculated the amount of daylight I had and ended up having to camp on a beach in just that jacket with zero other camping gear. I was blown away by how warm it was.”
Growing up in Victoria, British Columbia, Hanna Scott is no stranger to cold weather and colder surf. Orcas in the lineup? Check. Sub-50-degree water temps? All day. While these things might make the average surfer think twice, Hanna draws inspiration from them and channels that energy into her surfing and other creative outlets. This ability to adapt and thrive in a variety of conditions has shaped her into a formidable competitor, snagging podium finishes from 2014 to 2017 at Queen of the Peak, a prestigious women-only event at her home break in Tofino. With her original style and graceful execution on a board, as well as an eye for eclectic art and design, Hanna is poised to continue pushing surfing further into the future. Her latest Vans collection is a direct reflection of that powerful creativity combined with everyday function.
The Vans x Hanna Scott Collection is available now at Vans retailers and Vans.eu/Surf.
