Just days after confirming its rumored collaboration with Shawn Stussy, Dior has offered a backstage view of its Pre-Fall 2020 collection, shown ahead of Art Basel 2019 in Miami. A bevy of apparel, bags and other accessories are all available for perusal, artfully incorporating Stussy’s signature typeface with Dior’s logo.

According to Dior, the assemblage “merge[s] American and French identities, a fertile breeding ground for inspiration and clashes of culture.” It’s a concept that was inspired by designs from 1947 by Christian Dior, who at the time was curious about American culture. Kim Jones is building on the couturier’s story, with a special focus on Stussy’s Californian roots. Featured silhouettes include bold winter layers like knit sweaters, jackets, polos and shirts; accessories like ties, french barrettes and shiny jewelry; complemented by a slew of classic footwear staples. The collection takes on vivid hues of Hibiscus Red, Pacific Blue and a variety of saffron and pastel shades, reflecting the buoyant architecture of Miami beach.

Noteworthy pieces like the metallic limited-edition Saddle Bag and fluid jackets in tropical wools showcase a youthful spin on luxury, while intricately detailed jewelry designed by AMBUSH‘s Yoon Ahn expand the collection’s style offerings. Another highlight is a pair of loafers that come in treated leather stamped with “DIOR” logomania — colorways range from textured green python to all-black. Other pieces like intarsia knits, tote bags and T-shirts see premium embroidery and special beading, colored with floral motifs, checks and stripes that take on a look and feel informed by graffiti and warm sunset hues.

Check out the Pre-Fall 2020 collection in full above and take a closer look at Dior’s top-shelf Air Jordan 1 collaboration.

Elsewhere, Jones’ cutting-edge designs helped Dior win big at the recent British Fashion Awards ceremony.
