The Brit Awards 2018 weren’t just about the ladies, as a set of fellows put on their stylish best for the event on Wednesday (February 21) in London.
Calvin Harris: Not only did Calvin have me at hello, given the pure sharpness of this Dior Homme Spring 2018 suit, I was even more enamoured upon closer inspection. Look closely, and the graphic print is actually ‘Christian Dior Atelier’ printed stripes. Way to put ‘normal’ pinstripes to shame.
Justin Timberlake: Before taking to the stage to perform, JT was on the red carpet in a Stella McCartney dark suit and red scarf for a stylish flourish. I do question the brown shoes here, as they were such a distraction.
Luke Evans: The Welsh actor channeled suave formality in this charcoal-gray, contrast lapel suit.
Kendrick Lamar: The singer picked up the International Male Solo Artist award wearing a Versace Fall 2018 brushed silk velvet printed long coat jacket combined with a matching printed T shirt and black jeans. The look was aching cool. It’s not easy to work such a commanding print, but Kendrick pulled this off with plenty of swag.
Stormzy: Scooping up the best British male and best British album, the grime star suited up in a metallic retro-prom-inspired tuxedo that he gave an urban finish with the white sneakers.
Jonas Blue: The British DJ relied on this statement coat to carry the weight of the look. But, he didn’t own the look to its max capacity, which made it seem as if the coat was wearing him.
Sam Smith: Also performing during the event, the nominee took an elegant approach in this embossed Prussian-blue Ermenegildo Zegna Couture suit styled with a brick-red dress shirt. The shorter proportions of the jacket in partnership with the slightly baggier trousers may raise calls for more attention to tailoring.
Troye Sivan: Decked out in Saint Laurent, I love that even though the look feels refined, a leather jacket will always project a slight air of ruggedness.
Patrick Gibson: If bold prints and retro shiny suits ain’t your thing, then maybe you’ll find solace in Patrick’s simple yet suave iconic Saint Laurent Le Smoking tuxedo.
