Timothee Chalamet is each a vogue icon for our age—defying all stereotypes, hovering above cliches like a freaking vogue eagle—and a soothsayer for the second, with simply the precise outfit to knock us barely off our rockers. Like, bear in mind when he went suiting informal, however brooch formal, to the Oscars? Or when he wore Sterling Ruby’s paint-spattered S.R. Studio LA. CA overalls to advertise a film? These are the sorts of outfits that transfer folks younger and outdated to tears. I’m personally taping pics of those suits to my home windows—photos going through out, to maintain my neighbors impressed in these attempting instances.
So on this time of isolation, of staying at dwelling, after all Chalamet has emerged as soon as extra because the directional dresser of the second. On Monday, he strolled by means of Notting Hill in an ideal Social Isolation Constitutional Match. Notting Hill is the London neighborhood the place Julia Roberts as soon as gave Hugh Grant an enormous Marc Chagall portray whereas sporting a Prada-inspired sweater set and flip-flops in a movie of the identical title, so it’s a spot the place historical past is made.
And as he ambled alongside alone, we took in with admiration the best way he assembled a baseline for all Social Isolation Constitutional Suits—SICFs, if you’ll—transferring ahead. He’s acquired his personal private security blanket: the Prada nylon hooded jacket he’s been sporting round New York for the previous a number of weeks. He’s acquired front-crease pants on with a free, “I do what I WANT!” silhouette. And he’s acquired two of essentially the most “I’m the boss” equipment on the planet: New Steadiness sneakers, and a hat with a crest on it. This one is from Chelsea, the soccer crew, however it nonetheless conveys utter authority, that sure je ne sais six toes away from moi angle that this second calls for. To this scrumptious sundae of an outfit, he added a maraschino cherry: headphones, that are possible piping out a particular playlist stuffed with songs not merely about being alone, however how you’ll be able to observe the principles and nonetheless break a number of, my fraaaynd. He’s a-thinkin’ and a-wond’rin’ all the best way down the highway! (In different phrases possibly he’s listening to BOB DYLAN!!!) In these troubled instances, that’s simply the kind of match and audio steerage we’d like.
