Air Jordan Dior sneakers debuted with an online surprise release that caught many fans unprepared, who were eventually left dry-mouthed. The highly-anticipated collaboration, however, also includes a ready-to-wear collection with accessories.
The collection is available in select boutiques including Selfridge’s and the Bond Street store in London, the Dubai Mall in the United Arab Emirates and in Rue Saint-Honoré in Paris.

From tailoring to leather-working, the ultimate in #DiorSavoirFaire melds with the allure of American sportswear, as inspired by the on and off-court style of legendary basketball player Michael Jordan, in the #DiorJordan collaboration designed by @MrKimJones, first teased in the Men's Fall 2020 show in the form of 'Air Jordan 1 OG Dior' sneakers. Extracting elements from the heritage of the House and @Jumpman23, this quintessentially contemporary wardrobe is the result of passionate exchanges and a shared sense of exceptional invention. © Photos: @Valentin_Hennequin and @Alfredo_Piola

The first mention of the collaboration appeared in the pre-fall 2020 men’s collection with the sneakers “Air Jordan 1 OG Dior”. This time, French savoir-faire joins the unmistakable 80s American sports style in an unprecedented collection by Kim Jones.
The color palette has light shades, which extend from white to gray up to some black pieces. The items inspired by the culture of basketball merge with French sophistication. The collection includes casual woolen clothing, 80s-cut blazers, rounded jackets, sweaters, shorts, and scarves.
The collection is available in selected stores from 8 July 2020.
