Along with KAWS, Kim Jones tapped founder of 1017 ALX 9SM, Matthew Williams, to lend his brutalist industrial aesthetic to the Dior SS19 collection. The utility buckle, which was inspired from a rollercoaster ride at Six Flags, cropped up on belts, caps and backpacks at the Parisian house’s menswear show. This commissioned project – which brings two very different styles into one collection – just goes to show that designers can actually work together with transparency.
