Dior Men x ERL is finally here. Kim Jones and Eli Russell Linnetz take their California Couture capsule, presented in their Resort 2023 collection, to the halls of Dover Street Market London for an exclusive pop-up before launching globally at Dior’s boutiques. Dior’s iconic silhouettes are reinvented through a nostalgic and folkloric exchange between Paris and Los Angeles.
Merging art and life, the exceptional men’s pieces celebrate Kim Jones’ unprecedented dialogue with guest designer ERL. Parisian savoir-faire is reimagined through Californian pop-culture as American male archetypes are infused with classic House motifs. The iconic Saddle Bag is reinterpreted with an exquisite golden ‘masculine minaudiere’ composed entirely of metal and quartz, merging the unique atmosphere of Venice Beach into Haute Couture.
Glistening pearls, pastel hues, cool blues and fine tailoring create new horizons for contemporary menswear with a new graphic twist. The capsule is a maximalist wonderland brought to life by Eli Russell Linnetz, in his own words “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.” Dior's iconic references are reinvented, particularly the cannage presented in a quilted version – in satin and leather – on the new B9S skaters and the Dior Saddle Venice bag.
