Kim Jones just never takes a break, does he? Following the Dior Men's Fall/Winter 2023 showcase earlier this season, the London-born fashion designer has now officially unwrapped a collaboration with world-renowned cognac brand, Hennessy.
A one-of-a-kind partnership, the exclusive collection "bridges street and luxury," and consists of three pieces: a limited edition bottle, an XO Masterpiece decanter, and of course, the HNY Low, which marks the first sneaker from the French alcohol label.
Inspired by retro basketball shoes (something that Jones is particularly well-versed in), the low-top trainer boasts a minimalist design and is painted in an earthy brown hue as a nod to cognac. Crafted in Italy, they're outfitted in nubuck and leather, and are elevated with metallic gold hardware throughout for an extra luxurious look.
”We are thrilled to embark on a new odyssey blending cognac-making and couture with Kim Jones, a creative master of our time,” said Laurent Boillot, chief executive officer of Hennessy. “Inspired by the emblematic personality of Hennessy X.O, Kim has developed a resolutely contemporary collection that is destined to make an impact on culture today and in the future.”
The Kim Jones x Hennessy collection is set to drop on March 17th. Let us know what you think of this upcoming collab, and in other news, the Tiffany & Co. x Nike Air Force 1 Low "1837" is available here!
