If minimalism was the game, Alexander Skarsgård is the player but stepping out in Soho, New York overnight, the 42-year-old actor traded in his usual sweater and jeans for something of the seventies variety. Truth be told, pulling off a turtleneck is one thing, but to go full Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is a bold move.
Even rivalling film star Leonardo DiCaprio, the Swede arrived at the 14th Annual Tribeca Film Festival Artists Dinner in tonal mustard, hitting a 10 on the spice scale; burger and bun optional.
Pairing a fold over mustard yellow turtleneck and a deeper slim-fit suit, a chocolate brown penny loafer finished off the look and reiterated its homage to the bohemian-cross-rock era of the seventies. To avoid going full rock god, flares were *thankfully scrapped for a slim pant and while the lapel during the decade was over exaggerated, a minimal collar offered a more modern appeal.
Thanks to the likes of Tom Ford, Gucci, Giorgio Armani and Raf Simmons, amongst an onslaught of ’90s inspired ‘ugly’ trends that are seemingly flooding the runway, sartorial chivalry in the form of old-school tailoring reigns strong when it comes to red carpet style. Just last week, Zac Efron took to the Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile premiere donning a blue check suit, paired with an orange tie and brown loafers – another look to the seventies era.
The Trueblood actor recently starred in the film drama The Aftermath, in cinemas now.
