Luxury house DIOR unveiled its Spring 2023 Men’s Capsule Collection created by Kim Jones and guest designer Eli Russell Linnetz, Creative Director of ERL. The collection that fuses Paris and Los Angeles styles, pays tribute to freedom with ocean waves motif printed on sweatshirts and delicately embroidered bermuda shorts. For the collection Dior’s codes are reimagined and reinterpreted with relaxed California style.
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
“Dior’s emblematic references are reinvented, notably with the cannage featured in a quilted version – in satin and leather – on the new b9s skaters and the Dior saddle Venice bag. The iconic saddle is also reinterpreted as an exquisite golden “men’s minaudiere” composed entirely of metal and quartz, transposing the unique atmosphere of Venice beach to the realm of couture. Striking an ultimate balance between audacity and refinement, this exceptional line is an invitation to adventure.” – from Dior
