Eric Cantona was without doubt one of the most iconic footballers of his generation. Since his retirement from the beautiful game the Frenchman turned his talents to the arts, now an avid photographer, poet, painter & critically acclaimed actor, starring in Ken Loach’s brilliant “Looking for Eric”.
As well as the Arts, Cantona has a discerning eye for clothes. Combining sharp, sophisticated suiting with a more dressed down range of knits and polos, Cantona dresses with the same self assured mentality we saw on the football pitch.
The Eric Cantona Style
In traditionally sophisticated French style we’ve gone for a mix of minimal navy and dark grey pieces. A Handvaerk Knitted navy polo underneath a classics English Hackett suede jacket, paired with Paul Smith wool trousers. Finished off in typical Eric Cantona style with a Lock & Co flat cap.
