Kim Jones continues his men’s fashion takeover with the announcement of upcoming projects such as the Dior x Air Jordan 1 “Air Dior” and now the Dior x Stussy fall 2020 collection.
The collaboration with Stussy brought the brands designer, Shawn Stussy, out of retirement to deliver bold prints for its selection of pieces debuted at the Miami Fashion Show on Tuesday. This was good for the Miami fashion culture as they have been absent in the fashion scene for a while.
The show featured a brief look at what to expect for the upcoming fall collection partnered with Shawn Stussy, Matthew Williams for buckle design and Ambush’s Yoon Ahn with jewelry. Some notable pieces included a limited-edition metal saddle bag, navy and white psychedelic-print overcoat, surfing inspired black and white pieces and a green and purple knitted polo. These pieces showcase Stussy’s artwork beautifully while incorporating Dior’s luxury feel to each.
Many big names were eagerly awaiting the collection debut such as Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Travis Scott, David Beckham and Ricky Martin. Travis Scott and Beckham both pulled up in the Air Dior to give an early on feet look. Ricky Martin gave praise to the collaboration saying “It’s bringing the youth together with the older generation.”
Kim Jones has given Dior a little bit of everything with his recent and upcoming collaborations and has made a name for himself as one of the best designers in the industry right now.
