Thursday NEWSRUSH Featuring Dior X Air Jordan 1 US Cancellation.
It’s CULTED with your Thursday NEWSRUSH.
With momentum building as Travis Scott stars in the latest Air Dior video and lookbook, the already iconic sneaker collab has hit a stumbling block when it comes to distribution. The physical release of the Dior x Air Jordan 1 has been cancelled in the US as coronavirus cases rise.
Dior said in a statement: “the safety and well-being of our clients and employees are at the heart of all our thoughts and actions.” They went on to apologise for the cancellation, and at this point there’s no word whether the physical release will be rescheduled.
In other news, Jacquemus is set to stage a physical fashion show this month. The brand will stage a coed event on 16 July at a secret location in Paris for only a handful of guests, and of course social distancing will be in place.
Next up, Balenciaga has dropped a new glossy black sneaker, inspired by Taekwondo. The sneaker was released yesterday and is priced at $555. But that’s not all.
The brand also debuted its Spring 21 resort collection. The 41 new looks include bright bursts of colour, bold prints, as well as classic Balenciaga Matrix style coats.
That’s all for today. It’s Sam with CULTED.
