Fashion News – Kim Jones brought Dior’s high-fashion sensibility together with L.A. designer Eli Russell Linnetz’s SoCal surf-and-skate, DIY cool – Dior Men Resort 2023
The result was electrifying — Dior’s haute tailored skater suits, their extralong pant legs pooling over high-top sneakers done in quilted satin connage, and grunge-glam knits, board shorts, tux pants and beanies dressed up with Linnetz’s tinsel and sequin embroideries were all hits.
California couture, indeed.
Dior closed down the street at Windward and Pacific Avenues, transforming it into an ocean blue runway. It was set with waves cresting on either side leading straight to the beach. The show was called for 7 p.m. and the 700 or so guests milled around in the May gray. Vaping and sipping hibiscus ice teas for more than an hour before the VIPs rolled in from their private party across the street.
Taika Waititi was bringing the Champagne bottle with him. Fresh-marrieds Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz, a Dior polo-wearing Dan Levy. A shirtless Kid Cudi in a hot pink Dior sweater and track-tux pants, O.G. skater Tony Hawk and more.
