“For me it’s about bringing people together – people of different backgrounds, economic situations, gender expressions, races – and giving them a spiritual experience”, explains Honey Dijon.
DJ. Producer. Activist. Fashion icon. Honey Dijon’s talent knows no bounds.
And now she’s teamed up with one of the world’s biggest sunglasses brands, Ray-Ban, for an exclusive collaboration.
Following their collab with fellow iconic DJ Peggy Gou earlier this year, Ray-Ban Studios is now partnering with legendary house prophet Dijon, releasing three new frames. The Ray-Ban 1973 Square, Ray-Ban Olympian Aviator and Ray-Ban Wings II – the latter plated in 24k gold, because what else – with each reflecting a different time in music that means the most to Dijon.
“I wanted to tell a story about the decades I love the most”, she explains. “The ‘60s (white glasses), which was a huge turning point for social revolution, civil rights and black empowerment, ’70s disco (red glasses), and the decadent excess of the ’80s (gold glasses)”.
Explaining the inspiration behind this collaboration further, the icon tells us, “Success for me as a trans person of colour is that I survived… my definition of success is just being able to exist on this planet freely.”
