French Luxury brand Dior officially announced their highly-anticipated collaboration with Jordan Brand yesterday.
During Dior’s Fall 2020 men’s collection show in Miami (first showing in the U.S.) Maison Dior and Dior men Artistic Director Kim Jones revealed the first silhouette for the forthcoming Jordan Brand x Dior collection: Air Jordan I High OG Dior.
“I love mixing together different worlds, different ideas — and Jordan Brand and Maison Dior are both emblematic of absolute excellence in their fields,” says Jones. “To bring them together in this special collaboration is to propose something exciting and truly new.” via Nike
The collaborative limited-edition Air Jordan 1 High OG features the timeless AJ1 Silhouette paired with the emblematic style of Maison Dior. Designed in Italy, the Air Jordan 1 High OG Dior was created with the fine calf-leather that characterizes Maison Dior’s leather goods, edge-painted and dressed in Dior Gray, a color synonymous with the Maison since its founding in 1947.
“Our partnership with Maison Dior will offer a new look into the style of basketball and blend high-end streetwear with luxury fashion. We will pay homage to both brands’ rich iconography and draw inspiration from our heritage.” – Martin Lotti, Jordan Brand VP of Design.
The limited-edition Air Jordan I High OG Dior sneaker will be available globally in April 2020 in select Dior stores.
