Maxfield LA x Dior x KAWSLos Angeles specialty store Maxfield has teamed up with Dior to open a new Dior x KAWS pop-up within the West Hollywood location.

The pop-up, which opened on Wednesday, features an array of Dior x KAWS products like t-shirts, sweatshirts, backpacks and more, all designed Dior Men’s artistic director Kim Jones, who commissioned artist KAWS to reimagine the Dior logo and iconic bee.

The shop will also feature unique denim pieces using a special craft of Japanese Boro, which is a complex 17th century embroidery technique that gives clothes extra resistance and strength, punctuating some of the casual denim pieces to give it a “couture” flavor.

Last but certainly not least, a limited-edition Oblique BMX bike will be on display both in Maxfield’s Prouve House as well as a dedicated display window. The unique bike features premium materials such as transparent handguards and pedals, mirror chrome and the Dior Oblique print on see-through mesh. For the very first time, the bike will also come with a special Dior Oblique pattern aluminum case with top and side handles for easy carry.

The pop-up, which will remain open through Wednesday, December 26, will be highlighted through a dedicated visual installation that will live within the Prouve House and Maxfield’s window displaying a large-scale, roughly 8-foot-tall structure of the KAWS bee. The interior of the space will also feature black scaffolding to mirror the show space from the summer 2019 runway.
