Berlin-based DJ and producer Honey Dijon straddles the worlds of fashion and music—she’s just as comfortable spinning at New York Fashion Week after-parties as she is at some of the world’s finest clubs. But with her newly launched Comme des Garçons line—cheekily titled Honey Fucking Dijon (or HFD for short)—she’s getting entangled in the fashion marketplace like never before.
The HFD collection includes everything from T-shirts emblazoned with the streamlined HFD logo to headphone and USB-stick carriers to leather record bags for DJs. All of the HFD products were artfully arranged by Andrew Taylor-Parr up at Dover Street Market’s New York City store this past Saturday night. Dijon hosted HFD’s East Coast launch party (she also hosted an unveiling of the line at the Los Angeles Dover Street Market in mid-October). In an all-out festive spirit, Dijon wore a sparkling Comme number to the event: a CDG Homme Plus velvet coat (with coattails!) embroidered all over in sequins.
Dijon cut her teeth as a DJ in New York in the ’90s. Familiar faces from those early club days came to celebrate, including Masters at Work’s Louie Vega and his wife, vocalist and DJ Anané Vega. Some of Dijon’s newer acquaintances made appearances as well, like NYC-based photographer Richie Shazam Khan. She also reconnected with former collaborators like nightlife impresario Ladyfag. It was a New York City homecoming of sorts for the DJ and newly anointed fashion designer, one where her peers could go home wearing their allegiance to Honey Fucking Dijon on their sleeve.
