Dior Homme will launch a limited-edition BMX bike, in collaboration with French manufacturer Bogarde, during the Dubai streetwear festival Sole DXB on December 7.
While the bike itself reflects the shape of the cult model born in the early Nineties, the chromed finish of this exclusive design will also reflect the Dior Homme codes with touches of black and red, as well as the bee design engraved on the handles.
The BMX bike will be pre-launched in Dubai together with an exclusive pair of B01 sneakers in black calfskin, red lining and lace with white rubber sole. This iconic footwear style was inspired by the original German design created by the Dassler brothers in 1936 and worn by American athlete Jesse Owens at the KK Olympic Games.
Updated for the 21st century, this streamlined, athletic shoe is modernised with both aesthetic and structural innovations, from the lightly quilted tongue to a new Italian rubber composite ‘memory’ sole designed for lightness and comfort. Original details include the suede toe cap and a contrast heel panel, whilst cotton laces, the embossed Christian Dior bee, and a perforated stripe transform this shoe’s vintage appeal with a fresh, sportswear spirit.
Sole DXB takes place on the 8 and 9 December at Dubai Design District.
