The wait is over. The guest designed collection by Los Angeles native Eli Russell Linnetz for Dior Mens is finally here.
In a collaborative post, both Dior & ERL took to instagram to release several looks taken directly from their SS23 capsule. Shot by Eli himself, the look book gave us a joint offering of signature Dior pieces infused by the candied, dreamy colour scheme and aesthetic of ERL, as well as an opportunity to dive into the design between luxury legend and Californian dream.
"Irresistibly full of the vibrancy of Venice Beach, exceptional men’s pieces celebrate Kim Jones’ unprecedented dialogue with ERL – guest designer. Dior’s iconic references are reinvented in this extraordinary exchange between Paris and Los Angeles" - Dior.
For those who are already fans of the skate inspired B23 or B9S, you can find it in various colours, plumped up by some luscious quilted padding; or maybe you're a saddle bag collector - well, they have four up for grabs and plenty more to tickle your fancy.
A runway show clearly wasn't enough as there's a lot to unpack here, so have a further look through some of the editorial below.
