Celebrate the Lunar New Year with the dedicated Dior Spring 2022 capsule by Kim Jones in collaboration with Kenny Scharf, with clothing and accessories featuring the artist’s amusing tiger motifs, in tribute to the year’s zodiac animal.
Perpetuating the dialogue initiated between Kim Jones and Kenny Scharf* for the Dior Fall 2021 Men’s Show, the house is unveiling an Exclusive Capsule for the Lunar New Year.
In tribute to the Chinese Zodiac sign to be celebrated in 2022 – the water tiger – the American artist offers an original reinterpretation of this emblem, at the heart of a collection brimming with joyous energy.
This irresistible motif is transformed into prints, embroidery and patches appearing on shirts, knitwear, denim pants and down jackets; all seasonal pieces rendered sublime in a palette of blue, white, and red – a lucky color cherished in Chinese culture.
The feline also punctuates the line’s accessories – including Men’s jewelry – as well as the Dior Lingot 22 and Dior Lock bags, and the B27 sneakers, now in a gray leather version. These creations are already available in Asia.
