As the Teen Choice Awards came and went in LA this week, there was a paradox of well-dressed ‘boys’ in sleek cotton suiting and modernised dinner jackets.
A former Bond star made a dapper red carpet appearance in New York, while real-life playboys (think famous stockbrokers and hoteliers) partied on in Europe wearing blue and white casual combinations to tie in with summer’s nautical theme.
Below the equatorial belt, Australia’s Bonds turned 100-years-old and had a centenary party in Sydney to prove it; attracting local models who traded their undies for cool-dude leathers, denim and white sneakers.
A similar sportsluxe game bounced on at the premier of film ‘American Ultra’ back in LA with satiny bombers and raw denim jeans actively street-ed up by hi-top kicks.
And, the Americans sure know how to work a casual accessory – be it rucksack, chain or cap. They are the original street-masters, after all.
