The outfit he’s wearing:Palace x Ralph Lauren corduroy down jacket, multicolored Louis Vuitton scarf (probably an upcoming SS19 piece, given Clarke walked in that show), Palace Insu-Later beanie, and Palace x Oakley sunglasses.
Location: Paris Fashion Week Men’s FW19
Why it works: The pieces Clarke opted to don for Louis Vuitton‘s Fall/Winter 2019 show are so loud hype-wise that his decision to keep the colorways muted, with a few bold accents here and there, was a smart one. The silhouette is cozy and relaxed, with volume added via the Palace x Ralph Lauren padded corduroy jacket and given a sporty frisson by the Palace x Oakley sunglasses, the latter brand leading the way in the sports sunglasses trend. The multicolored Louis Vuitton scarf, meanwhile, makes the whole thing pop.
Editor’s notes: He might not have been walking in Virgil Abloh’s Louis Vuitton show this time around, but that hasn’t stopped longstanding Palace Wayward Boys Choir member Lucien Clarke from turning heads this season.
Naturally, it’s a given he would be wearing one of Palace’s most celebrated collabs to date, but the pro skater is also sporting sunglasses from the brand’s FW18 Oakley collab and the classic Insu-Later Beanie in black. It’s probably safe to assume the gray hoodie is Palace, too. In other words, he’s head-to-toe representing his skate crew at one of the most important luxury shows in the world, which, of course, is a flex, not to mention a strong nod to streetwear’s growing presence within the high-end fashion scene.
Now, check out what other industry insiders wore for Louis Vuitton’s FW19 Paris show.
