It’s no secret that Travis Scott is what you might call a jack-of-all-trades (cactus). Over the past decade, the Houston native has collaborated with dozens of other artists, as well as brands like Nike, McDonald’s, Fortnite and Dior.

Recently, it was announced that Scott will be on the fall / winter 2021 cover of AnOther Magazine, wearing clothes he designed with the help of Kim Jones, the current Creative Director of Dior Homme.

The two visionary minds spoke to the magazine about their friendship and what it’s been like to work together on a Cactus Jack x Dior collaboration.

“I have always collaborated with artists. This time I thought to myself, why not a musician? Jones said to another.

“Creating is a collective effort, and let’s be honest, a creative director is surrounded by a whole team of creatives. You can’t accomplish your ambitions for a house like this if you do it alone. It’s not about talent or fame, but if someone produces something that I think is cool, I want to interact with them.

Scott first met the designer six years ago, when Jones was running the menswear collection at Louis Vuitton. Over the years, they have worked together on several projects, the most recent being the Cactus Jack Dior Spring / Summer 2022 show.

“He’s such an inspiration. I was a fan even when I was in college, so it’s crazy working with him. Going to the workshop and watching things being sewn and hand made, it was crazy, ”the“ SICKO MODE ”rapper said of Jones.

The London native went on to explain that this was the first time that a luxury house has invited a rapper to really get involved in every step of the creative process; Usually, musicians are found on a moodboard or seated in the front row of a show.

“Travis knew exactly what he wanted. He understands what young people want, knows how to seduce them. He also knows what the brand is talking about. We wanted it to be Dior with the Travis element at the top.

Are there other rappers that you would like to see create a collection with a luxury house? Let us know in the comments.
