Past night time in Los Angeles, the entrance row of Dior Men’s vacation resort 2023 collection—which was guest-intended by ERL’s Eli Russell Linnetz—was stuffed with stars which includes Michael B. Jordan, Brooklyn and Nicola Peltz-Beckham, Child Cudi, and Rita Ora. Just one a lot more unanticipated visitor, nevertheless, was professional skater Tony Hawk, who rocked the entrance row in a Dior emblem sweater and acid-clean jeans. For Hawk, being a VIP fashion demonstrate attendee was an solely new encounter. “It was wild—I’ve by no means really been to a runway display,” Hawk tells Vogue. “I have not been in a group like that for a couple decades, and you could just truly feel the enjoyment. I sat in between Christina Ricci and Christina Aguilera.” Who better to inquire than to doc the night for us?

Hawk took Vogue inside of the Dior Men’s clearly show under, and he says the new menswear collection is one that he could very easily imagine himself carrying working day-to-day. “I like how they were being going with the semi-official seem with the suits, but making them authentic gentle casual,” states Hawk. “And then bringing again the significant ‘90s skate shoes—I definitely caught that component.” His most loved appears were the graphic pastel knits and boxy fits. “They reminded me of an up to date Talking Heads vibe—very edgy, but devoid of the shoulder pads.” For his have demonstrate appear, nonetheless, he needed anything a very little much more subtle and chic—so he opted to throw on a product emblem sweater overtop his crisp button-up and denims.

When he’s not at a fashion exhibit, Hawk says his existing wardrobe is a minimal extra subdued. “I usually go for darker colors, and things that is far more functional for skating,” he suggests. “I’m not always skating, but there’s a probability I’ll move on my board, and I do not want to put on dresses and destroy it if I slide.” These days, he’s been donning the Lizzie Armanto Vans to skate in (she’s a skater herself and a Hawk protogé). Sneakers are his major buying weak point, he states. “I burn by them,” he suggests. “I’m constantly putting on footwear that are suitable  for skating. Even when my wife and I went to the Oscars, I was wearing a tux and skate footwear.”

As for what the famous athlete will be up to this summer season? “I’m going on a talking tour in Europe [this summer,]” says Hawk. “And I’m just recovering from a damaged leg, so what you can be expecting from me in the coming months is attempting to trip my skateboard once again.” He will do it in model, no doubt.
