Beatrice Domond's Zahba Launch Event Photos

Vans brought the stars out to Brooklyn’s Space 198 to give a hearty launch for Beatrice Domond’s Zahba Mid.

04 Beatrice Domon Vans Zahba Mid Launch DSC02783Daniel, Cass and Chris. Pretty easy principle: if you don’t fuck with the Vans Space staff, I don’t fuck with you. And that opinion goes pretty far with like four people in New York that used to live in Arizona
