The menswear capsule, which will launch in November, will include 57 pieces, including ready-to-wear, bags and accessories, with an amalgamated logo showing Sacai written in the “i” of Dior. The designs blend the two brands’ signature styles, as well as the heritages and creative direction of the two designers. Sacai designer Chitose Abe and Dior men’s artistic director Kim Jones have both participated in a number of collaborations — some of Sacai’s partnerships include with Nike, and up-and-coming designer Tomo Koizumi, while Dior has worked with the Jordan Brand on the Dior x Nike Air Jordan, as well as a team-up with artist Daniel Arsham. The news was first reported by WWD.
Jones is familiar with luxury streetwear partnerships: He led a groundbreaking collaboration between streetwear brand Supreme at Louis Vuitton four years ago. Dior did not respond immediately to BoF’s request for comment.
