Hajime Sorayama is an acclaimed Japanese illustrator famed for his works of retro-futuristic robots (specifically eye-popping female androids) and also the man behind the creation of the 39-foot-tall silver cyborg that formed the gorgeous centrepiece of Kim Jones’ Pre-Fall 2019 menswear show held in Tokyo.
Sorayama is also credited with the creation of this exclusive print created for Dior, in which a dinosaur robot is set within a picturesque landscape of delicate cherry blossoms. Interestingly, the composition is anything but jarring and one that works well with the #DiorOblique print.
And because Dior likes to release its products in several drops across the season, you will have to wait patiently for the entire Pre-Fall 2019 collection to arrive in stores. If, however, you’ve got your eyes set on these gorgeous B23 High-Top Sneakers, the good news is that it is part of the very first drop that’s now available across Dior boutiques worldwide. Coming in a beige or blue printed #DiorOblique technical canvas body, the standout feature’s got to be the addition of the Sorayama’s dinosaur.
Priced slightly higher at $1050 (when you say it quikly, it isn’t a lot), this is definitely the sneaker that any Kim Jones/Hajime Sorayama fan shouldn’t be without.
Come into the beautiful world of Christian Dior.
