Kim Jones X Travis Scott collaboration
Are you as excited as we are for the new collaboration between Travis Scott and Kim Jones? We couldn't wait any longer, and it's finally time to discuss the Cactus Jack x Dior collection.
Travis Scott is the first musician to collaborate on an entire collection with Dior, quite amazing if you ask me. Travis Scott provided the soundtrack during the show and even threw in some new music teasers, as if we weren't excited enough already...
The two met six years ago and have been in touch ever since. Travis Scott really inspires Kim Jones with the foundation he wants to set up, the Cactus Jack foundation. With this foundation he wants to help people who have no money to attend their dream college. So they can still go to Parsons School of Design to study design. Jones wants to support this foundation by working together and providing opportunities to future students.
The collection was launched on June 25 at the SS22 Menswear Dior show. Fortunately, this show could be held physically. The show had a beautiful setting that was inspired by both hometowns of the designers. Texas for Travis and Granville for Kim.
Travis Scott really went into the design process. A video of Scott sewing and cutting pattern pieces was posted on Dior's Instagram page to show how involved he is with this collection.
A new monogram was created, which was kind of shocking, because you shouldn't really mess with something as classic as the classic CD logo. Cactus Jack's initials were put into the mixture, creating an awesome new logo which you can see below.
Of course, Dior is known for their classic and chic clothing and Cactus Jack is a street style brand. Both designers wanted to create a mix of both styles. And if you ask me, they have completely accomplished that mission. They created a new version of the iconic Dior Saddle bag that you can see below (we want!). Would you rather have a second-hand designer saddle bag than a new one? Find your second-hand Dior Saddle Bag over here.
If you ask us, this collaboration is a huge success and we can't wait to see what these two talented designers come up with next.
