Born into a family of stylists and designers, Luka Sabbat was raised by the best in the fashion community and with this DNA running through his veins, its easy to see why he has built his Instagram page to over 1 million followers. Having worked with international designers such as Dolce & Gabbana and Hugo Boss, this model, actor and stylist (there’s probably more) has become a young style icon for the masses. Despite having a massive designer wardrobe with an endless amount of epic pieces, his look can be replicated for the everyday man and we’re here to help guide you in the right direction. Take note for some serious inspo.
Unlike many influencers who seem to carry the same pieces as the rest of their fellow Instagram accounts, Sabbat has a unique and individual style, experimenting with colour, texture and shape to produce a different take on key staples. What results is a range of effortless looks.
As a fan of relaxed denim, tracksuits pants and chinos as well as basic tops, Sabbat opts for statement footwear and unique jackets to finish of his looks.
Comfort is Key
Starting off with something simple, this is one of the most easiest looks to steal from the young stylist, offering tonal pairing and everyday comfort. Dig out a pair of black jeans – the skinnier the better in this case – as well as neutral sweatshirt with a slightly baggy fit. The star in this look is the silver chelsea boots, (Saint Laurent have an epic pair) that completely changes the direction of the look into the smart-casual realm.
One of the more trickier looks to pull off, Sabbat has nailed the double denim trend with branded jeans and a structured trucker jacket. The key to pulling off this style is to play up the denim washes and never match. Take cues from this look by buttoning up the Levi’s Trucker Jacket, and pairing with a light-wash jean for added street style.
Another one for the style novice, black on black is an easy go-to for guaranteed style. As Sabbat has grown older, he has seemed to stray away from loud and obvious branding that had once made him famous, opting for subtle graphics and logos. Important to pull off an all back ensemble, look for graphic pieces to break up the dark look.
One thing that Luka Sabbat does well, is his expert layering, the easiest hack to surviving the cold months. Always starting with a light-weight, unstructured overcoat, Sabbat sticks to tonal layers that look good no matter how many you take off. Try an oversized windbreaker to top off a layered look.
Orange is the new Black
Netflix said it and we now believe it to be true. With rise of colour on the seasons radar, orange has made a bold impact into the kits of street style pioneers and Sabbat has made it simple to give the colour a crack. Ignoring the fact he is standing on the kitchen counter, Luka Sabbat has kept it simple with white pants and sneakers. And who said orange has to be bright, look for a burnt orange hoodie to keep it subtle.
Similar to the above, colour over recent seasons has dominated the red carpet and Sabbat is making it achievable for the average man. If you want to stray away from the standard black-tie attire then red is the next best thing if you’re looking to make a statement. This is definitely not for the light-hearted but Sabbat shows us how good it can look.
