While you were sleeping, Dior showed their Pre-Fall 20 men’s collection (which was made in collaboration with Stussy) in Miami, ahead of Art Basel Miami Beach.
Already responsible for Louis Vuitton’s now-iconic FW17 Supreme collaboration, Dior’s artistic director, Kim Jones, is no stranger to bringing streetwear to the runway.
The collection was comprised of graffiti-inspired bucket hats, slouchy 80s neon knitwear, relaxed tailoring (think suited basketball shorts and Dior Jordan 1s) layered with across-body Dior saddlebags (naturally).
When Dior announced their collaboration with Stussy on Monday, the fashion community could barely contain their excitement. Kim Jones was officially the man to bring Shawn Stussy—the retired godfather of streetwear— out of retirement.
The collaboration was announced in a series of cryptic Instagram posts featuring a neon graphic video merging the two brand together with the #DiorMiami.
The show, and collaboration, is of great significance for Jones, who told WWD in an interview earlier this week, “I used to wear it head-to-toe all the time in my teens. It was something I was really, really, really obsessed by. I’ve [still] got boxes of it.”
