Paris Meets Venice Beach in the Dior x Eli Russel Linnetz Capsule

Kim Jones and ERL Present “California Couture”

BY Steven Hempel // 01.19.23

It may be the dead of winter, but it’s never too early to start thinking about our favorite time of year. Spring changes everything. Dark days pass and the warm sun brightens our days and moods. For the 2023 Spring collection, Kim Jones and Dior have leaned into that little part of the world that always feels sunny and cool. Teaming with wunderkind and native Angeleno Eli Russel Linnetz, winner of the 2022 LVMH Karl Lagerfeld prize, for a Dior Men’s capsule launch in Venice Beach. 

Kim Jones, Dior Men’s Artistic Director, has made his mark by steadily rolling out hit after hit for the French fashion powerhouse. His latest effort, a guest-designed collaboration with Eli Russel Linnetz, made its debut in Venice Beach, California on an ocean blue runway with a stream of Dior-clad models showing off vibrant satin suits, puffers, pullovers, sweaters, and the like. Metallic fabrics, chunky pants and sneakers, some intricate beadwork, and a fearless collection of accessories including Linnetz’s reinterpretation of the classic Dior Saddle bag made big impressions.

While the looks were relaxed, they were anything but subtle. The collection is a mashup of past meets present meets Cali cool, with sequin braided shorts, Christmas-like tinsel adorning trousers, and metallic suits making bold statements.
