Recap: JME, D Double E, Logan Sama, Flowdan & The Square at House of Vans

On Saturday night, Vans celebrated their collaboration with Eley Kishimoto, bringing a heavyweight Grime line-up to House of Vans. We sent young photographer Vicky Grout to document the madness.

At first I thought it was a bit odd that this playful, print based collaboration was being celebrated with a larger-than-life Grime line-up at HOV, but I later learned that the line-up had actually been hand selected by Mark Eley himself (one half of Eley Kishimoto). You wouldn’t guess it, but it turns out he has a soft spot for the current Grime revival, and I love that.

House of Vans was full, as expected, with young Grime fans and their unique style. London youth finally have their character back after a period of Americana. This was definitely one of the best events down at House of Vans, not only for the music and energy, but also for the production. It’s all in the details; from over 1,000 chrome balloons covering the ceiling of the main tunnel, to the animated gnomes being projected in the skatepark, or the Eley Kishimoto print covered boxing dummies in the art gallery (those inflatable things that bounce back when you hit them).

As per usual, Vicky has focused on the people that made the event what it was – the artists and the crowd.

Shouts again to the Vans crew for putting on an amazing night.
