the collaboration coincides with dior men’s first collection debuting in the united states, and the 35th anniversary of NIKE’s air jordan brand. produced in italy with fine leather, the partnership defines the intersection of multiple fashion cultures — in particular haute couture and high-performance sportswear. ‘I love mixing together different worlds, different ideas — and jordan brand and maison dior are both emblematic of absolute excellence in their fields,’ explains kim jones. ‘to bring them together in this special collaboration is to propose something exciting and truly new.’
