Yep, Jordan also wore a Louis Vuitton, uh, bib. This time the Virgil Abloh–designed harness featured a floral print with Louis Vuitton logos. Jordan opted to wear it over a double-breasted suit instead of just a button-down (à la Chalamet).
But FYI, Timothée wasn’t even the first to rock this look: Chadwick Boseman debuted Abloh’s design at the ESPYs in July 2018. Abloh himself has said he’s inspired by Michael Jackson, who famously wore a harness while performing at the 1993 Super Bowl. And before they were even considered fashionable, harnesses were a key look for the leather bar scene in queer culture. So you could say there’s a fair amount of fashion history involved.
While we don’t see this look transcending the red carpet just yet…we think we’re starting to understand the so-called trend. It’s not ice-rink-ready-to-wear (no offense, Adam Rippon), but a larger moment for menswear that embraces experimental, gender fluid fashion (capes, floral prints and sheer dresses included).
And we have to say…we’re very into it.
