Cactus Jack X Dior Finally Dropping This Summer
| LAST UPDATE 07/05/2022
The postponed collab between Travis Scott and Dior is finally set to launch - so let's take a look at what pieces have made it. The goosebumps artist and the French luxury house confirmed the arrival of "Cactus Jack Dior," after being pushed back following the Astroworld tragedy in November. Here's what you can expect...
Dior and the Houston-born rapper were scheduled to release the capsule back in January, but things were rescheduled due to the tragic incident at the rapper's festival in late 2021. "Out of respect for everyone affected by the tragic events at Astroworld, Dior has decided to postpone indefinitely the launch of products from the Cactus Jack collaboration originally intended to be included in its summer 2022 collection," a Dior rep reported to Complex back in December.
Now that Scott is slowly reappearing back to the public after keeping a very low profile these past few months, Dior is gearing up to drop the highly-anticipated collection. The capsule was inspired by Scott's personal style mixed with skatewear style, all tied together with a classic Dior touch. The collection includes a range of men's ready-to-wear apparel, accessories, and B713 retro-inspired sneakers that people are looking forward to. First revealed at Paris Fashion Week last year, the sneakers echo early skate shoes of the 2000s while dawning the diamond-shaped "CD" monogram on the shoe.
Not only is Scott linking up with Dior to drop "Cactus Jack Dior," but the artist has teamed up with Nike to drop the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 Lows, which is a part of the artist's "Cactus Jack" collab series with the Nike/Jordan Brand. The release of these highly-desired low-tops is expected to release on July 21. Besides re-joining the world via fashion, the Sicko Mode rapper was scheduled to also co-headline the Day N Vegas music festival, his first festival since Astroworld - alongside SZA and J. Cole. However, the festival was canceled entirely due to "a combination of logistics, timing, and production issues." Scott has returned to the stage for a few small performances, including a pre-Oscars party in March and a 3 A.M. set at E11EVEN in Miami during the Formula 1 Race Week celebration in May. As of now, Scott is scheduled to headline the Primavera Sound Festival in November in South America. Safe to say, Laflame is officially back.
