Since Timothée Chalamet first hit the red carpet for his breakout film Call Me By Your Name in 2017, he has defied the rules of traditional male dress by opting for bright block colours and plenty of floral prints. His bold approach to fashion has cemented him as a modern-day style icon.
The 24-year-old Academy Award-nominee never shies away from difficult fashion choices, rocking everything from an embellished Louis Vuitton harness over a tight black button-down at the Golden Globes to a beautifully tailored silver-grey Haider Ackermann suit for the premiere of Netflix’s The King. He constantly experiments, wearing a paint-splattered denim overall ensemble created by American artist Sterling Ruby to a premiere in South Korea. And broke the Oscars dress code in 2020, when he turned up in a formal bomber jacket, without any sort of tie, rather than the typical tuxedo.
While technical tailoring is a mainstay in his wardrobe, just like his black stomper boots — a mix of elegance and grunge that epitomises his red carpet looks — the actor is equally comfortable in more casual attire. Chalamet has often been spotted out and about in New York wearing louche loungewear, with an off-duty wardrobe that includes everything from his favourite black nylon parker by Prada, plenty of acid-wash jeans, dark hoodies, baseball caps and “dad” trainers.
