Dior announces launch of previously postponed Travis Scott fashion collection
Written by Ken Simmons on July 2, 2022
This week, Travis Scott announced his first ticketed performance since the November 2021 Astroworld tragedy in Houston, and now, he’s making his comeback in the fashion world.
After indefinitely postponing the launch of the Houston rapper’s Cactus Jack collection following the festival — which resulted in 10 deaths — Dior has announced that the skate-inspired pieces will debut worldwide on July 13, according to Women’s Wear Daily.
The collection was originally set to be released in January, but in December, Dior put the fashions on hold indefinitely “out of respect for everyone affected by the tragic events at Astroworld.”
Before the concert, Nike planned to debut two Air Max 1 sneakers with Scott in December; the launch was also postponed after the festival.
The revival of the Dior collection follows the announcement earlier this week that the “Sicko Mode” rapper had planned his first major concert since the deadly tragedy.
La Flame will perform at London’s O2 Arena on August 6. He announced the event Monday on Instagram with the comment, “Been in the studio for a while. Time to take it to bigger speaker. See u soon London.”
Scott has performed at a few private events since Astroworld, including a Coachella after-party; the London show will be his first ticketed performance this year. The “Highest in the Room” rapper is also scheduled for the Day N Vegas festival on Labor Day weekend and has headlining dates in November at Primavera Sound in Buenos Aires, Argentina; Santiago, Chile; and São Paulo, Brazil.
