This season, Dover Street Market Paris presents 3 international emerging brands: ERL, from Venice Beach in California USA, Liberal Youth Ministry, from Guadalajara in Mexico and Rassvet from Moscow in Russia.
Eli Russell Linnetz (ERL) is a unisex brand designed by Eli Russell Linnetz and based in Venice Beach, Los Angeles. Featuring all the components of an ERL wardrobe, the collection is designed with the casual and laid-back spirit of California and intended for all ages. Originally partnering with Comme Des Garçons in 2017 on a film created to celebrate the ‘Andy Warhol’s you’re in’ scent, Eli also launched a special collection to commemorate the opening of DSMLA in 2018, featuring the artwork of Jordan Wolfson and in collaboration with Nike.
In January 2020, ERL presented its first full collection under the Dover Street Market Paris umbrella. It will be available globally at DSM locations in addition to over 45 international retailers. Eli is a frequent collaborator with top artists, fashion houses and brands such as Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga, Grimes, Adidas, Burberry, Bvlgari, Apple Music, and Tesla.
Liberal Youth Ministry (LYM) is a Guadalajara-based brand founded by Mexican designer Antonio Zaragoza in November 2016. Each collection approaches the universality of youth and is deeply influenced by American pop-culture, films and music of the 80s and 90s. Since its inception, the collection has garnered a following that includes musician Bad Bunny, among many others.
Rassvet (PACCBET) is a community of like-minded Muscovites bringing new energy to the fashion, art, skateboarding & music scene in their city. This new generation of creatives work closely together to cultivate various projects with the objective of bringing their vision of modern Russia to the world.
The word Rassvet, meaning “sunrise”, illustrates this community’s common desire to highlight a new dawn in Russian youth culture. Founded in 2016 by multi-disciplinary artist (Comme des Garcons alumni) Gosha Rubchinskiy and pro-skater Tolia Titaev, Rassvet is a brand making their way into the skateboarding industry. As implied by its name, the brand is dedicated to representing and exploring the style and language of a new generation of young Russian rebels through Rubchinskiy’s distinctive re-appropriation and re-engineering of skatewear classics.
