Timothee Chalamet sported a high-fashion sequinned hoodie at the London Film Festival premiere of his movie The King on Thursday night.
The Call Me by Your Name actor has become known for shunning the classic plain suit, the traditional male red carpet attire, in favour of bold, interesting and experimental looks since he rose to fame in 2017.
And the 23-year-old didn’t disappoint as he hit the red carpet in London’s Leicester Square on Thursday night wearing a black sparkly hoodie from Louis Vuitton teamed with plain black trousers from the French fashion house and patent black combat boots.
According to Vogue, the hoodie was embroidered with more than 3,000 Swarovski crystals and 15,000 sequins and took more than 30 hours to make.
Before taking to the red carpet, the Lady Bird star showed a close-up of the cuff of the hoodie which was embroidered with the words “Treat people with kindness.”
Men’s artistic director Virgil Abloh, who often likes to mix luxury with sportswear, shared a snap of Timothee and his ensemble on Instagram and wrote in the caption, “Texts with @tchalamet about red carpet looks turn into rare Louis Vuitton hoodies from the men’s atelier quick.”
In the comments, the actor replied, THANK YOOOOU MR. ABLOH !!!!!!” and designer Marc Jacobs gave his seal of approval by writing, “He’s the coolest. Dope hoodie dreams. So here for it!” with fire emojis.
Timothee previously teamed up with the designer on another headline-grabbing look – the sequinned harness he wore to the Golden Globes earlier this year.
However, during a subsequent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he clarified that the bedazzled creation was actually a bib.
“I thought it was a bib! They told me it was a bib,” he said. “I had a friend send me a thing that, like, sex-dungeon culture is a thing where you wear harnesses… I didn’t do it for that reason.”
