Dior and Kenny Scharf Reinterpret the Water Tiger Through Cool Blue Prints, Embroidery, and Patches
Couldn't get enough of Kenny Scharf's team up with Dior Men? We've got good news for you. It seems Kim Jones feels the exact same way. The French fashion house has once again tapped the American painter to collaborate on an exclusive capsule collection for the Lunar New Year. The collection's main motif is the Water Tiger, the Chinese zodiac sign celebrated in 2022, which has been reinterpreted by Scharf in his signature style in a palette of blue, white, and red.
The motif is pretty cool by itself, but repeated in a pattern it reminds us a lot of chinoiserie (fitting, wouldn't you say?). It also appears in just about every piece in the collection, only in different ways: prints, embroidery, patches, you name it. And, of course, who could forget the motif against the Dior Oblique pattern. Aside from all the cold-weather clothing pieces, the capsule has shoes and accessories. Main highlights include the Dior Lingot 22, Dior Lock bag, and Dior B27 sneakers. As for us, we've obviously got our eyes on the mohair cardigan.
Take a look at the capsule collection below.
