Excuse me Timothée Chalamet, is that the Tom Ford latté leather blazer and matching silk shirt and trousers from the Spring 2024 collection that JUST debuted in Milan last week?
Chalamet’s journey into high fashion has seen him sport some truly iconic looks from Louis Vuitton (harness), Alexander McQueen (floral suit), and Haidar Ackermann (that red halter neck number in Venice), challenging traditional notions of masculinity along the way.
Adding to his fashion conquest, Chalamet has become the face of Chanel’s prestigious Bleu de Chanel men’s fragrance, and he’s taking centre stage in a Scorsese-directed commercial.
And it was at a Chanel dinner to launch this said commercial that Chalamet turned heads yet again. He confidently sported a head-to-toe look from Tom Ford’s spring/summer 2024 collection, designed by new creative director Peter Hawkings. The outfit, inspired by the trending latte colour palette, featured a silk caramel button-up shirt, high-waisted satin pants in rich coffee tones, and a mocha-hued single-breasted leather blazer. Completing the look were tasteful gold accessories and mock-croc Chelsea boots.
While runway to red carpet is not too unusual an occurrence in the world of womenswear, for menswear it’s a much rarer situation. Tailoring makes it hard to get the fit just right so it looks like it was made for you. So fashion nerds will know just how much of a power move this it is for Chalamet to effortlessly pulled off look number 13 from Ford’s latest collection, even before the show season concluded. It’s a testament to his status as one of Hollywood’s most sought-after talents and his knack for redefining masculine style with flair. With Chalamet, masculinity and fashion boundaries continue to blur, and it’s a transformation that’s impossible to ignore.
Perhaps dating one of the most influential women in fashion, Kylie Jenner, really does have its benefits…
