Dior Men exclusively launched its Fall/Winter 2019 collection online, offering up a capsule of “retro-futuristic” pieces with prints designed in collaboration with Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama. The new drop encompasses casual staples stamped with Cherry Blossom artwork, including footwear, graphical tops and accessories.
Dior’s B23 high-top sneaker takes centerstage, featuring a blue canvas upper under its signature translucent paneling. The shoe has been emblazoned with one of Dior and Sorayama’s special Oblique patterns, which showcases the pink florals and a dinosaur-robot reminiscent of the same sculpture from the brand’s Pre-Fall 2019 show. A more traditional “DIOR” patch rests at the midsole to finish it off.
The same unique print fills out a fleece sweatshirt, crafted in gray marl, and one of the jersey tees, which is offered in black and white. Meanwhile, the collaborative line also presents an alternative graphical shirt, showcasing Sorayama’s trademark robotic female figure. A bandana and calfskin card holder in the range have also been marked with the defining floral illustration, while a silver-tone dinosaur necklace rounds it all out.
Prices range from $250 USD for the bandana, to $1,300 USD for the sweatshirt, with the shoes coming in at $1,050 USD. The collection is available to shop now at Dior’s webstore.
Recently, the label also introduced customizable “Walk’n'Dior” sneakers under its ABCDior program.
