Colm Dillane and Cirque du Soleil join forces at Paris Fashion Week for the KidSuper Spring/Summer 2025 Fashion Show

New York, United States, Thursday, June 13, 2024

New York, United States (June 13th, 2024) – Colm Dillane and Cirque du Soleil partner together for the upcoming Spring/Summer 2025 Fashion Show at Paris Fashion week. The artist, designer, and founder of KidSuper once again demonstrates his unbounded creativity and fearless approach to fashion. KidSuper, Dillane’s brand renowned for its imaginative designs and boundary-pushing concepts, is set to unveil a collaboration with Cirque du Soleil at the historic Trianon theater, at 6pm on June 22nd, 2024, during Paris Fashion Week Men’s.

Colm Dillane has always thrived on taking risks and defying conventions. His visionary leadership has propelled KidSuper into the spotlight, and his infectious energy and unwavering commitment to his artistic vision have fueled the rise of KidSuper in the fashion industry. "I never got good advice from someone who didn’t take risks", added Dillane. By continually pushing creative boundaries and integrating elements from various industries, Colm's shows serve as innovative proof of concepts, expanding KidSuper's reach and growth into new sectors and making it a compelling business strategy.

For the KidSuper Spring/Summer 2025 show, Colm Dillane continues to integrate performing arts into fashion. Collaborating with Cirque du Soleil, the event will meld a runway show with performances by Cirque du Soleil artists and build on the String Theory concept from last season. This theme explores interconnectedness and the unseen forces shaping our world, using strings and puppetry to delve into who controls the strings in our lives, both literally and metaphorically. This powerful metaphor challenges the audience to reflect on autonomy and interconnectedness, inviting viewers to question who or what controls the strings in their lives and how these influences shape their personal narratives.

Performative arts and fashion share a fundamental purpose to evoke emotion, tell stories, and create immersive experiences. Fashion shows, much like theatrical performances, rely on visual spectacle and narrative to captivate audiences. By merging their worlds, Dillane and Cirque du Soleil amplify the impact of their creative expressions. This recurring theme in Dillane's work symbolizes the complex web of relationships defining our existence. The show emphasizes how great art is rarely created in isolation but results from diverse talents and perspectives forming a cohesive whole. Dillane celebrates the collective creativity driving innovation in both fashion and performing arts.

The narrative will be woven into the collection, highlighting the intricate relationships between fashion, circus, and Cirque du Soleil's unique visual identity. The KidSuper Spring/Summer 2025 collection stays true to the brand's signature style, featuring vibrant art, bold colors, and eclectic prints, while venturing into more intricate designs and elaborate silhouettes. The overarching theme of the circus runs through the collection, which includes a special capsule of co-branded KidSuper and Cirque du Soleil products. Dillane has also created one exclusive costume in collaboration with Cirque du Soleil.

Each piece in the collection reflects the multi-dimensional nature of the KidSuper universe, where fashion, art, and performance converge to create an unforgettable experience. “We are incredibly excited to be partnering with Colm and Kidsuper on this innovative collaboration.  Colm’s ability to push creativity and expression is in perfect synergy with the Cirque du Soleil brand”, adds Melanie Summers, Head of Licensing for Cirque du Soleil.
