When the American artist @KAWS was commissioned to collaborate on the Dior Men Summer 2019 show and collection, his involvement stretched from a giant sculpture down to colorfully plump little bees. Somewhere in between, featuring his signature X-marked eyes, and as gifts for our guests, came these beyond cool alternately pink and white stuffed toys outfitted in the sharpest @BabyDior_Official threads! #DiorSummer19
For Dior SS19, artistic director Kim Jones commissioned the work of Brooklyn-based artist KAWS.
In the collection, the artist revamped the house's bee motif as well as providing a giant BFF sculpture at Paris Fashion Week. The sculpture has now been reimagined as a miniature plush toy clad in Baby Dior.
Since its PFW debut, the stuffed toy has already been put up for sale on StockX, with an initial asking price of $9,999,999. It’s worth noting that past KAWS collectibles have cost between hundreds and thousands of dollars, dependent on the project.
Despite the initial price tag, it appears the seller has had second thoughts and has since lowered the asking price to $4,273,494. The highest bid at the time of publishing is $2,400. Not far to go, then.
There's no official word on whether the toy will roll out in Dior stores. So, if authentic, this listing could be one of your only opportunities to cop the toy.
What are your thoughts on the listing? Would you cop for $2,400? Or even $4 million? Let us know in the comments below.
