Even if you were only paying partial attention to Kim Jones’ Dior Men’s debut at Paris Fashion Week, you’ll still have clocked the massive KAWS BFF made of 70,000 flowers that towered over the runway. This masterpiece, of course, was there to mark Dior’s SS19 commisioned project with artist KAWS, offering a playful approach to luxe-end fashion.
For the project, KAWS reinterpreted the house's signature bee symbol in his distinctive style across a raft of products, which you can see close-up via the gallery above. The symbol was scattered across Dior’s SS19 accessory line, printed in leather as a keyring, hanging off weekend bags and backpacks, on wallets and side bags, or printed as a repeating motif on totes and clutches.
Pop art-style typography also lent a lively touch to the collection, with the brand's name penned across goods in shades of pink and blue.
