Today, the French luxury house confirmed that they are finally ready to launch the rapper's long-awaited collection that will include men's ready-to-wear apparel accessories, and the B713 sneakers.

As per Dior, the collection draws inspiration from the rapper's personal style. It is an amalgamation of the classic Dior motifs and skatewear, with Scott's personal style woven into the mix. The Cactus Jack touch is quite evident as it juxtaposes itself against the Dior elegance.

The integration of the signature Cactus plant of Scott and a reworked oblique pattern of the Parisian label that features "Jack" lettering is signficant to the essence of the collection.

One of the standout pieces from the collection is the B713 silhouette, and fans have been looking forward to it ever since they received the first glimpse of the shoe. Dior's chief men's footwear designer, Thibo Denis, took to Instagram to offer a closer look at the unreleased footwear which boasts a blue colorway.

Referred to as B713, the silhouette features faded hues of ivory, blue, mint, and maroon. The upper is constructed out of premium leather, mesh, and smooth suede over the collars, mid-foot, and mudguards, respectively. Other than themudguards, the toe boxes are also constructed with a smooth suede material.

Inspired by the early 2000s, the sneakers include thick stuffed tongues and logo tabs.The lateral and counter tabs feature retro "Dior" lettering. The diamond-shaped "CD" monogram, which is reminiscent of the Volcom logo, adds to the retro aesthetic, and it is seen accentuated over the tongue tabs, eyelets, heels, and outsoles.


The collection is finally expected to be available at the Dior store and its official e-commerce site, starting July 13, 2022.
