Kim Jones is about to reveal his first collection for Dior, and now the Artistic Director has teased that he’s been working with the popular artist KAWS. The famous street artist has given Dior’s iconic bee symbol an edgy update, reinterpreted with a modern, streetwear-inspired design. It remains to see what the collaboration entails, but we’re sure that we’re in for something big. KAWS has previously collaborated with Uniqlo, and has an upcoming Sesame Street collection set to drop within the upcoming month, so this isn’t the artist’s first fashion venture.
Kim Jones will be presenting his first Dior Homme collection during Paris Fashion Week Men’s, taking place on Saturday June 23. Make sure to keep checking back for all the latest updates, and peep the teaser below to take a look at the upcoming partnership.
