If you were to walk past or scroll through the latest campaign from Saint Laurent Fall/Winter 2019, it’d be hard to recognise the global star staring through a pair of black acetate frames. Suited up head-to-toe in crisp tailoring, monochrome prints and heavy combat boots with a mop of dark curls to finish, when you look closely, you can make out the face of young actor, Finn Wolfhard.
Bursting onto the film scene, Wolfhard has skyrocketed to worldwide stardom thanks to his breakout role as Mike in the Netflix Original, Stranger Things. Following the release of the third season, 2019 is proving to be huge for the 16-year-old as he makes appearances in IT Chapter 2, The Addams Family and The Goldfinch. As he looks to A-list status and off the back of his newest Saint Laurent campaign, the Canadian actor is quickly being considered a style icon for the next generation.
Stylist or not, Wolfhard holds a certain finesse so we took to his Instagram – of which boasts 12 million followers – for style inspiration for the masses. From Saint Laurent specs to more street style ensembles, here are the pieces to inspire your next kit addition.
Joining the likes of Travis Scott and Keanu Reeves, Wolfhard is the latest to front the French fashion house, chanelling a modern twist of ’90s grunge and prep. Dip your toe into the bold trend and opt for a pair of black frames to try it for yourself.

Tie-dye made a revival in 2018 thanks to Kanye West and Virgil Abloh and as 2019 progresses, it is showing no signs of slowing down. There is nothing refined about tie-dye so keep it casual and take a cue from the Canadian actor with a basic sweatshirt.
