Personally, I’ve always believed sneaker artists are some of the most talented people walking the earth. To be able to take sneaker models that have already been released in a wide range of silohettes and designs, let alone colorways, takes a great level of creativity and vision. Canada-based graphic artist Dead Dilly created eleven classic Air Jordan concepts with high fashion brand influences like Raf Simons, Balenciaga, and more. The entire Air Jordan High Fashion sneaker concepts pack includes:
Air Jordan 1 x Yves Saint Laurent
Air Jordan 2 x Alexander McQueen
Air Jordan 3 x Maison Martin Margiela
Air Jordan 4 x Raf Simons
Air Jordan 5 x Hood By Air
Air Jordan 6 x Versace
Air Jordan 7 x Balenciaga
Air Jordan 8 x Haruki Murakami
Air Jordan 9 x Bernhard Willhem
Air Jordan 10 x KRISVANASSACHE
Air Jordan 11 x Givenchy
According to Dead Dilly (and I quote) “The idea was to make fake collaborations between Jordan and Higher End brands. That’s all.” Dead Dilly absolutely bodied the whole sneaker game with this project! Those Versace and Raf Simons concepts are wavy as I don’t know what! Which of these are you feeling the most?
