Kim Jones Taps Artist Kenny Scharf For Dior Pre-Fall Line.
Kim Jones is no stranger to working with artists. Since taking over as Artistic Director of men’s collections at Dior, he has continued to work with his profile artists, incorporating their vision into Dior’s menswear. From Kaws to Daniel Arsham and now Kenny Scharf.
The LA-based painter gained recognition during the New York art scene of the 1980s, with his cartoon-like paintings adorning the East Village. He grew up alongside Keith Haring and Jean-Michael Basquiat during the heyday of New York street art.
He will be lending his colourful touch to the upcoming collection and Jones says that his colourful paintings provided the inspiration for this pre-fall line.
The collection is set to be released on December 8th on Dior’s website.
