The man with one of the best heads of hair we have seen is back with his new single with Lil’ Baby – Pony. Having worked with some of the biggest names in 21st Century music: from Beyoncé to Ed Sheeran to Mark Ronson, Julian Perretta has always looked the part with his casual-cool indie-Rockstar look, and we can’t wait to see what Julian Perretta style he sports over the Summer.
Paisley has returned for Summer 2019, and the fashion icon has mastered how to wear this tricky trend: as a basic cut jacket or shirt with plain pairings. MR PORTER are all over this trend right now and have some great pieces on offer. We can definitely see Perretta in this printed cotton corduroy shirt by Aime Leon Dore. Vintage inspired, this shirt shows just why the designer’s debut collection sold out in 45 minutes. A regular cut and created from fine-waled corduroy, this button-down piece can be worn buttoned-up or undone over a white shirt to complement the buttons.
For something a little more daring, but equally wearable, try the Kapital’s Patchwork Bandana-Print Aenim Jacket from MR PORTER. Named after Kojima – widely regarded as the denim capital of Japan – take a guess at the brand’s speciality. Inspired by vintage work wear and the Japanese region’s ‘boro’ patchworking technique, there is definitely a lot of opportunity for this item to be a conversation starter over the summer.
Another item you will regularly see Julian Perretta wear, and wear very well might we add, is the classic leather jacket. We know he would give his approval of the Renzo Leather Biker Jacket from ALL SAINTS. A classic motorbike jacket with a modern edge: featuring an asymmetric zip, waist belt and snap closure ticket pocket. Furthermore, this best seller comes with a detachable hood, alluding to the cool combo of hoodie and jacket that Julian often adopts. We particularly love this look the artist wore to the recording studio with Dallas Austins.
We totally promote creativity here at off the cuff / ldn and love the idea of personalising leather jackets with cool artwork much like Julian’s. I recently met a fabulous artist Walter Michael DeForest that uses acrylic pens to customise his, and allowed those that attended his workshops to do also. Anyone fancy giving it a go?
How cool is this distressed denim jacket Julian wore to a shoot on the beach?! Take influence from the style icon’s look with this Distressed Denim Shirt by Thom Krom available on FARFETCH. Wear it unbuttoned over a classic tee for that understated style.
On to the next jacket! Here the songwriter sports a camo, classic cut coat with military-esque patches by Replay. Although this jacket can definitely be worn wrong, it is one hundred percent a staple to invest in if it is your style.
Officine General have produced a cotton- nylon blend ripstop jacket with a brilliant camo print (available on MR PORTER). While it may appear simplistic at first sight, there has been great care in the attention to detail when creating this piece: from the curved yoke (top back panel) to the covered buttons on the pockets. This item comes minus the patches but why not add your own or badges to personalise it?
Alongside his array of jackets, our fashion icon of the moment can most commonly be seen in black skinny jeans. A staple among many men’s wardrobes for the past few years: you either love them or hate them, but if you are going to wear them make sure they fit you correctly! Crafted from stretch denim, with distressed, slashed knees the Cigarette Damaged Skinny Jeans from ALL SAINTS have a comfortable, relaxed fit. Cigarette is the brand’s standard skinny jean fit with tapering at the ankle for modern styling – it is definitely worth trying out these skinny jeans when on the search for your best fit.
We recognise it is hard to pull off the Hawaiian or even just a floral shirt. But whether it be enhanced by the stunning private jet or not, no one can deny that the vocalist has put his take on the shirt superbly.
Black and white is certainly a way to go allowing colour and pattern not to clash. FARFETCH currently have a selection of MSGM palm tree print shirts available on their website just in time for the summer months. The relaxed regular fit and monotone simplistic print gives it almost a rockstar edge that we know Julian can pull off well. Roll the sleeves up and open a few buttons for a summer time trip take on the look… and of course don’t forget the sunglasses!
