Dior has revealed the Shawn Stussy x Dior B27, the brand’s latest collaboration with American fashion designer, Shawn Stussy. The results speak for themselves with the designer working his magic on the iconic B27.
Reminiscent of the styles and designs found under his eponymous label, the Shawn Stussy x Dior B27 carries ’90s street motifs. The new sneakers are already on sale at Dior, following an Instagram tease by Thibo Denis, Dior‘s lead footwear designer.

In his post, Thibo revealed an up-close look at the new footwear for fans to admire. The sneaker, which evokes styling cues seen in ’90s and ’00s skate shoes, is part of the capsule collection in collaboration with the Californian designer.
The Shawn Stussy x Dior B27 is crafted from white smooth calfskin and Dior Oblique Galaxy calfskin. Featuring a minimalist design, the sneakers are distinguished by tonal Dior Oblique Galaxy leather cut outs on the sides. Stamping their marks, the new B27 sneakers are further embellished with “DIOR” presented in red with Stussy’s signature handwriting at the back.
The motif not only adds colour but also provides a contrasting look to the black, white and grey shoe. ‘CD Icon’ eyelets and other hallmark details enhance the sneaker on the two-tone rubber sole, the tongue and back. The new sneakers retail for US$1400 (S$1862) and will pair well with other Dior and Shawn creations.
The legendary streetwear icon has a long-term partnership in place with Dior. That relationship has also given birth to the Shawn Stussy x Dior B23, which was released last year. It has also produced a new Lunar New Year themed collection.
Recognised as a Chinese New Year capsule, the collection features a new co-branded B23 along with apparel and accessories. Celebrating the Year of the Ox, the collection features the zodiac being incorporated in various styles throughout the line.
