Luxury house DIOR presented their Spring 2023 Menswear Capsule Collection, that fuses the brand’s savoir-faire with Californian pop culture pomp, on May 20th, at Venice Beach in Los Angeles. For the collection, designer Kim Jones collaborated with creative director of ERL, Eli Russell Linnetz. The collection merges both designer’s interpretations of Dior‘s heritage. The looks bring the precision of tailoring as well as easeful everyday sensibility. The collection also nods to Kim’s very first collection for the brand, and to Gianfranco Ferré’s 1991 collection for Dior.

We have worked with lots of different people on our collections, but this time I wanted to work with someone in a different way; I wanted somebody to see Dior from a different angle. With Eli Russell Linnetz, not only do I like his work but working with a younger designer on Dior Men and seeing things from his perspective, felt incredibly inspiring. It was both familiar and revelatory; reaffirming why we both dreamed about working in fashion in the first place. – Kim Jones

We started looking at the Dior archive from the year of my birth, 1991. This was during Gianfranco Ferré’s period as artistic director and was a part of the history of Dior that felt completely fresh for both Kim and me. The idea of ‘maximalism’ comes from there and from me – a coming together of chaos and perfectionism. There’s a collision of moments in time and history throughout the collection, of cross-generational and spatial meetings in time. – Eli Russell Linnetz, ERL
