Athi-Patra Ruga’s Collaboration with DIOR

WHATIFTHEWORLD is pleased to announce Athi-Patra Ruga’s collaboration with Dior on their Lady Dior Art Bag.

Ruga joins other artists such as Rina Banerjee, Maria Nepomuceno, Mickalene Thomas, Jia Lee, and Eduardo Terrazas in designing bags for the fourth edition of the capsule collection.

“I think that’s the modernist curse: if it’s too beautiful, it’s not art. For me, I find there’s just something so punk about high fashion and high craftsmanship, which is one of the cornerstones of both my studio and the Dior studio,” he said during an interview with Joelle Diderich.
