Let’s go to the beach, let’s go catch a wave with Dior. Who better to join Kim Jones on the West Coast than Venice Beach-based designer Eli Russell Linnetz. An ERL-ified Dior Men is California Couture. Sparkling waves crashed on hoodies and those epic ice cream pastel ERL puffer jackets were hypnotising. California dreaming. Hair was spiked to perfection, because for Dior Spring 2023 it’s all about a skater boy, so Dior Saddle bags swung with thick gold chains and quilted sneaker tongues puffed wide. With My Bloody Valentine on blast, they walked with surf-skate-swag, in veiled hats and slouchy loosely tailored suits. Those California Dior Men, they’re unforgettable.
