This season, DION LEE presents a collection that bridges the worlds of the toolshed and the atelier. Embracing industrial design, the collection showcases toolbelt-inspired corsetry, scaffold-like jewelry sculpting the form, and workwear materials given new life with crushed leather metallics and laminated finishes. Power cords aren’t just for the workbench anymore; in Lee’s hands, they redefine clothing volumes with flair and precision.
Spotlight on Jacolby Satterwhite
Digital artist extraordinaire, Jacolby Satterwhite, has left an indelible mark on the world of video, painting, and choreography. Drawing inspiration from diverse realms like mythology, modernism, and video game culture, Satterwhite gives the conventions of Western art a fresh perspective. Notably, he has the distinction of being only the second artist to be commissioned for The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Great Hall. Between October 7, 2023, and January 7, 2024, visitors can witness his multimedia and performance series. Currently, Satterwhite’s base is Brooklyn, NY, and his talent is showcased under the representation of Mitchell-Innes & Nash.
DION LEE’s SS24 is not just about clothing but a holistic approach to fashion. A highlight of the season is the collaboration with London-based Ancuta Sarca, introducing a women’s shoe capsule. This collection breathes new life into deadstock DION LEE garments, fabrics, and iconic utility buckles, morphing them into striking heeled silhouettes.
Adding another layer to the SS24 collection is the renewed collaboration with Parisian brand BOTH. This partnership sees the transformation of utility rubber combat boots, now innovated with new materials and a fresh take on proportions. This season, DION LEE continues to push boundaries, celebrating utility’s raw power and the elegance of design. dionlee.com
