DIOR PARTNERS WITH GHANAIAN ARTIST, AMOAKO BOAFO
Dior’s men’s collection for Spring/Summer 2021 season embodies artistic impressions born of the brand’s collaboration with Ghanaian artist, Amoako Boafo.
Kim Jones (Creative Director of Dior Men), during Dior’s pre-fall show in Miami, discovered Amoako as he exhibited his works at the city’s newly-opened Rubell Museum. His interest and love for the artist’s creativity lead to the collaboration.
The collection features face paintings and shirts, etc embroidered with floral motifs which were modelled by all-Black models in a short film uploaded to YouTube.
