The 73rd annual Venice International Film Festival has just ended and the Golden Lions were awarded to Italian and International actors and directors. Here are the most interesting looks and trends in terms of style.
A new formality
Attending the Italian festival wearing a suit without a tie? It is possible. As long as you focus on other details. A perfectly tailored fit, a sharp line, a composed attitude: these are the tricks to a more spontaneous elegance. Dress code rules are changing and celebrities seem to know how to master a new formality.
The director-designer Tom Ford brought his black tie A-game at the Closing Ceremony. A sharp DB tuxedo, less spontaneous yet with a more traditional look than single-breasted model. A flawless six-buttons dose of charm. Jake Gyllenhaal, main character of his film, walked the red carpet wearing a similar but less-wide-lapels double-breasted black tux with a classic white evening shirt and a bow tie.
Welcome back Seventies
Men’s fashion shows have announced it, Venice Film Festival seems to confirm it. ’70s Style Inspirations have contaminated colors, textures and haircuts. It’s no surprise that James Franco and Filippo Timi – Messrs antidivi– took them upon themselves to walk on the Venice’s red carpet. Mustache, hair, striped shirt and a brown tuxedo. The old school looks as dapper as never before.
The second day of the Venice Film Festival was all for him: the charming Michael Fassbender who starred in The Light Between Oceans, by Derek Cianfrance. Breaking away from black, we applaud his desire to swtich things up a bit. The Irish-German actor wore a simple two-button suit with ticket pocket and classic lapels cut. The pattern? An alternative to plain, which follows men’s fashion trends: a blue tone on tone windowpane.
