Everything you need to know from the Dior Men show in Los Angeles

Kim Jones invited Eli Russell Linnetz, creative director of ERL, to rethink the codes of the house of Dior for Spring/Summer

2023.

“We’ve worked with different people for our Dior collections, but this time I wanted to do it in a different way, with

a different look at the house. So I wanted to work with Eli Russell Linnetz, whose creativity I admire; and seeing

things from this young designer’s point of view was incredibly inspiring,” explains Kim Jones about the Spring/Summer

2023 collection presented this May 19, 2022 in Los Angeles. It seemed like a no-brainer for the designer. Eli Russell

Linnetz grew up in the city of angels, more precisely in Venice Beach, and is behind a brand inspired by American archetypes.

And let’s not forget that Monsieur Christian Dior had a special affection for the United States.

The place

Head for Venice Beach. It is on Windward Avenue, near the coast, that Kim Jones chose to unveil the silhouettes

of his collection. An iconic street, merging art, fashion and nightlife, which saw the parade of pieces combining

the expertise and heritage of the house of Dior with the coolness made in California.

The 100% American spirit

“We were inspired by the Dior archives starting with the year I was born, 1991 […]. The idea of “maximalism” comes

from there and from my world – a mixture of chaos and perfectionism. A collision of moments crossing historical

and contemporary eras punctuates the collection,” says Eli Russell Linnetz. ERL’s artistic director revisits the

house’s codes with his signature vision, hijacking American masculine archetypes with motifs like cane transformed

into satin and leather quilts on skateboard-style sneakers and crystal-embellished pants. When California meets

the 8th arrondissement of Paris, in short. www Dior Men spring-summer 2023

Skater boy y2k

Venice Beach means skater boy. The California Couture collection is full of elements borrowed from the y2k trend,

like the ultimate piece of the show: the padded skater sneaker that, with its chunky sole and effortlessly tied

laces, looks like it’s straight out of the 2000s. There are also the wide peach skin pants, the shorts with a screaming

pattern, or the saddle bag, which Kim Jones is always having fun revising and correcting. This time, he endowed

it with a quilting and a handle in golden links.

Tailoring, again and again

What would the Dior collections be without the reinterpretation of the house’s signature tailoring via

the contemporary vision of Kim Jones? Once again, the designer and Eli Russell Linnetz focused on the

suit and blazer, a tribute to Kim Jones’ first collection for the house, which they spiced up this season

with upcycled polyester from debris collected from the ocean. The duo goes further by imagining an opera

cape formed from a patchwork of plaid shirts and sports jerseys, echoing both a beach towel and a spectacular

Hollywood movie star outfit.
