The full collection is set to be revealed tomorrow on Friday, 25 June 2021. This is the first time Dior has ever officially worked with a musician on a collection. That said, Jones is no stranger to an unexpected creative partnership: in the three years since he joined the French fashion house, he has designed collections with Shawn Stüssy, Raymond Pettibon and Ambush jewellery founder Yoon Ahn. He has also collaborated with artists as diverse as Peter Doig, KAWS and Daniel Arsham.
This latest announcement is – according to a Dior spokesperson – a continuation of Jones’ “inspiring dialogues with pioneering personalities.”
Scott is also a familiar figure in the fashion world. As well as being a Grammy-nominated musician, he has previously worked on capsule collections for Evisu and Nike, while his company Cactus Jack is working on a philanthropic fashion program with New York’s acclaimed Parsons School of Design.
