Robert Pattinson at the forefront of Dior’s Spring/Summer 2023 men’s campaign

Kim Jones kicked off Dior‘s Spring 2023 menswear campaign with none other than Robert Pattinson. The sartorial imagery, which highlights the House’s “California Couture” collection with ERL, was taken by photographer Rafael Pavarotti.

Where the collection adopted an ideal mix of Venice Beach style, 90s couture and sub-cultural codes, the campaign adopts a much more refined aesthetic. In it, Pattinson embodies Dior’s signature man, donning pared-back ensembles against youthful backdrops in pops of green, red and blue.
