The world's of luxury and street style join forces once again, this time, offering the ultimate collaboration between fashion house, Dior and streetwear brand, Stussy in celebration of Chinese New Year. The exclusive capsule collection, designed collaboratively between fashion icons Kim Jones and Shawn Stussy, pays homage to the Year of the Ox in the most 'hypebeast' iteration imaginable.
The Year of the Ox collection continues to highlight the iconic Shawn Stussy graphic while championing the expert craftsmanship and attention to detail the Dior house is synonymous with. The duo's latest project leaves no stone unturned, featuring an eye-catching selection of wardrobe staple garments, statement-making accessories and sneakers.
A noteworthy piece in Dior x Stussy Chinese New Year capsule is the varsity letterman-like jacket presented in a bright red iteration with the hybrid branding prominently stitched on the front. While this is already enough to grab the attention of any streetwear maven, the main intrigue of the piece is courtesy of the image of a navy blue-outlined bull placed on the back of the jacket – the graphic filled and enhanced by the Dior x Stussy logo.
The collection leans heavily on the red an navy colourways, alternating between the two to present a series that is both refined and equally wearable in the way of hoodies, sweaters and button-up shirts – each adoring the large ox motif. Reimagining Dior's mainstay leather goods, including the crossbody pouch and backpack, the capsule incorporates the subtle addition of the ox silhouette hangtag.
Fans familiar with the luxury house's sneaker collection will notice that Dior x Stussy have given their the B23 and B27 sneakers the Chinese New Year treatment; resurrecting the Dior oblique high-tops with a festive touch.
