This week in the world of style, Highsnobiety’s fashion podcast caught up with bootleg-inspired brand Bandulu to discuss its latest Nike collab, Rick Owens dropped two new books with Rizzoli and shared his favorite reading material with us, and South African womenswear designer Thebe Magugu was announced as the winner of this year’s coveted LVMH prize.
Elsewhere, the rest of us were just trying to look our best, including celebrities and cultural figures. Here were some of our favorites from the past seven days.
A$AP Ferg was seen out and about during the lead up to New York Fashion Week, rocking a polo shirt from New York label Telfar and a new dyed blue hairdo. The shirt, pulled from the brand’s SS19 collection, is a re-working of an American staple, featuring a logo ring pull at the zip and a subtle logo on the green pocket.
Here, Ferg has paired it with leather Needles pants, some very ’00s style Chanel sunglasses, and a pair of crisp Nike Air Force 1s.
What is happening here, exactly? Bill Skarsgård is doing for pinstripes what ASAP Rocky does for headscarves, i.e. making them relevant.
At the premiere of It: Chapter 2 in Los Angeles, the younger Skarsgård sibling donned a perfectly fitted black suit from Burberry, but with some exciting details. Intriguingly, the tie is almost invisible thanks to the coordinating stripes on the shirt, which lends a slightly surreal, does-it-actually-exist kind of vibe.
Many suits live or die depending on the footwear they’re paired with, and in this case, the patent leather boots tie it all up perfectly.
Drake showed up to the London premiere of Netflix feature film Top Boy in a gray cashmere suit and silk roll neck from Tom Ford. We appreciate the smart style here; the tailored proportions and fall color palette. But the beads? We’re just not sure about the beads.
We already sang the praises of Timothée Chalamet’s outfit from the Venice Film Festival earlier in the week, but we’re hoping the bold new direction will inspire other red carpet stylists to embrace the new folds of modern tailoring, as Chalamet does with aplomb in the spacey gray, double-cinched Haider Ackermann suit.
