LA-born artist Kenny Scharf cut his teeth in New York during the ‘80s. That means that his work had to match up with the likes of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring. That’s pretty distinguished company. Much like Basquait and Haring, Scharf took a refreshing, street-wise view of creativity, making work across genres that was instantly recognizable. Its latest canvas? A Dior collection, of course.

Kenny Scharf x Dior is Dior head honcho Kim Jones’ latest shot at giving the storied luxury house a refreshingly accessible new face. With a definitive streetwear edge, Kenny Scharf’s graffiti-style drawings grace the luxury materials that we associate with a label like Dior. From silk bandanas through to Dior’s fan-favorite B23 Sneakers, a whole host of pieces have been reinvented with Scharf’s unmistakable splatter-like characters and they’re looking perfect for summer.
