Rumors have surfaced online that the Jordan athletic brand is in the works with a collaboration of their own Jordan x Dior collab
Early this week the Adidas brand confirmed it was collaborating with the international fashion house, Prada (according to PYLeaks). While the Jordan x Dior has no confirmation yet I think it is still worth the mention as couture brands like Fendi among others have been vying for the attention streetwear is getting locally and internationally.
Whether or not the partnership is based on a men’s or women’s collaboration hasn’t been made clear nor was any emphasis on what side of the design the Jordan 1 model would lean on. According to Twitter account @ovrnundr, Nike and Dior will collaborate on an Air Jordan 1 model whose production will be limited to 1,000 silhouettes. Priced at $2,000, the shoes allegedly are scheduled for a June 2020 launch.
While there isn’t anything wrong with the release I for one would not like to see velvet kicks with chains on it. But rather would like a capsule to be part of the release. While Dior needs no introduction or even the partnership gives me the heebee jeebees for another unnecessary release. I think it should be a good taste and not just for a look. That would definitely be an upset.
