Dior's latest collaboration is taking fashionistas to the streets—quite literally. The luxury brand is introducing a limited-edition Dior bicycle created with Bogarde, a Parisian bike designer. 

The bicycle itself is très chic. Dior's iconic logo is printed on the handlebar and chrome base, while the rest of the bike is black and red, Dior Homme's signature colors. The BMX bike's simple design was inspired by street culture of the 1990s, an era Kris Van Assche, the artistic director of Dior Homme, often looks to in his designs, according to Harper's Bazaar.

Van Assche shared a sneak peek of the collaboration on Instagram back in October:

And Van Assche released yet another look at the bike yesterday in a photo by Patrick Demarchelier:

The bikes are retailing for $3,200 (€2,500) and will officially launch during the Sole DXB streetwear festival, which is held December 7-9 in Dubai, Business of Fashionreports. But if you want to get your hands on one, you'll have to move quickly: only 70 bicycles will be produced. They'll be available for purchase by special request in select Dior Homme stores.
