HONEY F*** DIJON #06

Diving into the downtown nightlife of NY in the late 70s to early 90s, HFD’s FW22 collection takes us on a journey through time and music with classic references and strong collaborations.

The collection presentnever-before-seen collages from Tom Of Finland in a full attire offering showcasing patchworks of printthroughout. Touko Valio Laaksonen, best known by his pseudonym Tom of Finland, was a Finnish artist known for his stylizedhighly masculinized homoerotic art, and for his influence on late 20th-century gay culture. From an amazing all-leather look including intricate stitching on the pants reminiscent of chaps, to allover printed shirts in cotton or see-through mesh as well as delicate knits, Honey wanted to present his work in a new visual way.

“In HFD, the process involves a lot of research. It’s about finding work that is not commercial, unveiling the unseen,” explains Honey. “You don’t see many people of color in Tom of Finland’s known art, so it was important for me to bring them forth, show this diversity. That is what the brand stands for.”

 

From club references to song lyrics, music is at the heart of HFD’s DNA, unleashing iconic Chicago house club anthems into the world. This season, we are all invited to “Walk The Night” metaphorically and join Honey in the dark excitement of a basement club in 1979 through this Skatt Brother’s classic hit.
