Three years on from Fifty Shades of Grey’s initial premiere, it is still hard to disassociate heart throb, Christian Grey with Jamie Dornan. But, the Cotswold residing, village fete attending, down to earth father couldn’t be more different in lifestyle and style.
The now established actor began his career as a model: leading campaigns for fashion giants Calvin Klien, Dior and Armani. Labeled the “Golden Torso” by the New York Times, it would have been easy for the icon to have been sucked in by the world of fashion and celebrity; yet the Irish Actor openly expresses how absurd he finds it. Jamie Dornan has also admitted to being totally un-enthused by the prospect of dressing up for premieres and events.
Now the face for Boss: the scent, the star admits with a young family and busy work schedule he has no time for a grooming regime. However, stubble or full facial hair, many men will envy the icon’s beard.
As models you are the first to be exposed to the new creations on the catwalks as well as various different season’s collections at any one time, (not to mention a multitude of different brands) so it is understandable that Dornan has opted for a effortless and timeless style over the years.
Jamie Dornan’s chosen attire to visit to the SiriusXM Studios In Los Angeles recently hints to a Hollywood take on retail genius Arket. Here, he teamed a classic white tee with a casual tailored jacket in forest green and paired with matching sunglasses. We definitely recommend investing in the Asymmetric Army Green Cotton Twill Blazer by Dries Van Noten (available on MR PORTER). Wear over a white t-shirt for a classic laid back look. A back bone of a capsule wardrobe: it makes sense to invest in quality and comfort when it comes to basics such as a tee. Therefore, the Assembly Cotton-Jersey piece by Folk is a worthy contender. This garment will always look simply stylish, whether layered up with a relaxed blazer or solo. Cutler and Gross’ round frame tortoiseshell acetate and gold tone sunglasses have the perfect green-grey lenses to tie this outfit together. The accessory has been handcrafted in Italy with expert knowledge on fit. They sit perfectly on the brow line and the green compliments any skin tone.
Another great example of ‘classic cool’ Jamie Dornan style is the outfit he wore on the red carpet for his new film A Private War at Guild Hall during Hamptons International Film Festival 2018.
Now for my female, fashion trained (but mainly female) input. Guys take note, a double breasted Blazer with grey wool turtle is an ensemble that Dornan does best and is a timeless gentleman staple silhouette. There is a large providing of both of these garments at this time of year, so you are guaranteed to find the right style and colour for you. Easy.
For the braver of our readers the model come actor shows us how to wear check outerwear well in his latest feature in The Sunday Times Style Magazine. A key trend for this season, look for a check colour combination and fit that suits you and make it your own through styling it up or down. The Frais Checked Overcoat by Ted Baker is is a brilliant example of that wearable statement piece that can’t really go out of style year on year.
It is no secret that the male icon is rather partial to a round of golf. Now let’s be honest: there’s some absolutely awful golf gear on the market, but with the athlelesiure trend becoming more and more prominent each year, the offering has improved somewhat considerably in recent times. There are even online golf department stores such as Trendy Golf to fulfil the label lover’s golfing wear needs. The Nike Dry Half Zip Mid Layer Top in olive is ideal for that understated casual look at the 18th hole. As the cold season sets in, why not invest in a quilted shell down jacket like those provided by RLX Ralph Lauren available on MR PORTER? Finally, for trousers, you cannot go wrong with Under Armour – these Showdown Heatgear Golf Trousers would be ideal for any golf fanatic.
Everyone needs a hoodie, and with roles in Private War, the new version of Robin Hood, My Dinner with Herve and Death and Nightingales Dramas all out this year, who blames the hard working actor for opting for comfort clothing. For something a little different I would recommend Kenzo’s Tiger zip and Logo Zip Hooded jumpers.
