This week Inhale Fashion is delighted to introduce our latest bright young star into the stylish elite. Douglas Booth is a Brit on a fashionable mission.
In 2012 the male model is just as widely recognised as your beloved Hollywood actor or chart-topping musician. In 2012 the male model is more than a runway figure or pretty face and has taken light to displaying a public persona and in turn, becoming a style icon in his own right. For Inhale Fashion’s Man of the Week, look no further than English sensation Douglas Booth.
It may be his chiseled looks, tousled hair or the fact that he stands at 6’ 1”, but it is more than that, Douglas Booth is not a face you forget. You may recognise him from previous Burberry campaigns or even from the BBC adaptation of Great Expectations, on which he delivered an exceptional performance. More recently so, Booth was spotted exuberating his effortless cool appeal at the Emporio Armani summer party, where he once again proved that a simple white tee with black trousers and cardigan has the utmost style appeal. Last year in fact, GQ placed this star number two on their best-dressed list – an impressive position to hold when you are only nineteen.
Douglas Booth is the epitome of casual yet elegant style, neat yet still rough around the edges, safe yet still a bit daring and providing the necessary optimism for those men that do not believe in the ‘less is more’ mantra. Signature to his look is the infamous blazer that he is not afraid to explore with when it comes to colour, and well-fitting trousers that vary from a skinny to slimmer fit – Booth knows exactly what works for his slender figure.
Booth’s style is the reflection of his talents; whilst we already applaud him for his achievements thus far, we know the best is yet to come. Despite being involved in the world of fashion, he has shown that the male model can evoke individual style without losing sight of what suits them and their personality, another mistake that some men make when it comes to fashion. It is highly important to remain as true as possible to your own style by carefully making decisions with what you choose to wear. It is this exact notion that has allowed Booth to transform his looks from occasion to occasion, whether it be a fashion launch or sporting event, he manages to be consistent yet at the same time refreshing.
An important piece to the London fashion scene puzzle, Douglas Booth sets a great example to fellow gentlemen everywhere. It worth keeping your eyes peeled for his latest role as Romeo in the next year’s upcoming re-make of the Shakespeare favourite, Romeo and Juliet. There is nothing wrong with keeping it simple, clean and well groomed and if that doesn’t sway you, then you cannot deny how good Mr. Booth makes a white tee look. Let this be a lesson in t-shirt dressing to us all.
