Icon of the Month – Eddie Redmayne

Like previous King & Allen icons Benedict Cumberbach or Idris Elba, Eddie Redmayne is one of those talented young British actors who it’s impossible not to like. He shot to super-stardom in Les Miserables and hasn’t put a foot wrong since, showing his real acting meat playing Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything – for which he won the Oscar this week for best actor. As if the accolades weren’t coming thick and fast enough – he was also recently voted GQ’s best dressed man. From bold checked rakish to slick understated cool, he’s not afraid to vary his wardrobe. His staple colour is blue, however, which perfectly complements his light hair and fair skin. Below is a rundown of our 9 favourite Eddie Redmayne suits… so far.

9. Velvet – a bold but stylish alternative to traditional black tie.

4. The ‘Marmite’ choice in the King & Allen office, but you have to admire the originality. Note the very conservative secondary colour.
