Robert Pattinson Headlines Dior’s Spring 2023 Men’s Campaign

Kim Jones debuted Dior’s Spring 2023 menswear campaign starring none other than Robert Pattinson. The tailoring images, which highlight the Maison’s “California Couture” collection with ERL, were shot by photographer Rafael Pavarotti.

Where the collection embraced an ideal blend of Venice Beach style, ’90s tailoring and subcultural codes, the campaign takes on a much more polished aesthetic. In it, Pattinson plays Dior’s signature man, wearing clean ensembles against boyish backdrops in splashes of green, red and blue.
