Eli Russell Linnetz Gets Grilled by CDG’s Adrian Joffe

The ERL founder shares an exclusive photo series for the cover of HYPEBEAST Magazine Issue 29.

Eli Russell Linnetz is a photographer, designer, producer, director, famous friend, avid surfer, Venice Beach lover, Paris hater, mischief maker and truth teller, but is a born collaborator above all else. With the support and encouragement of COMME des GARÇONS’ Adrian Joffe, Linnetz’s latest project is a clothing collection stamped by his initials, ERL.

Exclusively for this issue, Eli rounded up friends and fellow surfers with the aim of shooting his new collection. But what emerged was a series on the essence of Venice Beach, which one could argue is a portrait of Eli himself.

Fangirling with Thundercat

The artist on anime, Muay Thai, and what inspires his singular style for HYPEBEAST Magazine Issue 29.

Thundercat plays the bass. He plays it very well. He’s also very good at singing, writing and producing music. These are common, well-documented Thundercat facts, obvious even to casual fans of the Los Angeles-born virtuoso. Unless you’ve seen Thundercat perform live, however, you may not realize that the multitalented Grammy winner, born Stephen Lee Bruner, is obsessed with fashion.

Well, less with fashion and more with clothing. His style is both intimate and unapologetic, demonstrated by a penchant for on-stage style that ranges from a hoodie and face-obscuring shades to a Dragon Ball costume.

Clothing has a lot to do with Bruner’s larger-than-life persona; it reflects his willingness to reshape boundaries, starting with his own wardrobe. Of course, having such personal attachments to his clothing means the clothes get worn, and worn frequently. When we join Bruner in his hotel room, clothing is scattered across the floor, bed and bathroom. Prized layering pieces are hung in the closet, and a Pikachu-laden backpack is given pride of place amidst a small pile of Louis Vuitton bags beneath the TV, currently displaying the title screen of Samurai Shodown. Bruner’s wardrobe is democratic, in a sense; vintage kimonos and well-worn Naruto tees are just as valuable as luxury labels.
