Icon of the Month – Leonardo DiCaprio
It has been a long time coming, but Leonardo DiCaprio finally got the award he’s been waiting for all these years… King & Allen Icon of the Month!
When Leonardo DiCaprio first found mainstream success in the late 1990’s, he had a real passion for three button suits, which he would often wear with just the top button done up – a style that hadn’t been in fashion since the turn of the previous century! Nowadays, however, his suit choices are modern, stylish and actually quite conservative: he favours 2 button lounge suits (albeit cut quite high) in a royal blue worsted wool/silk blend for a smooth finish. The blue is a great choice as it compliments his blond hair and blue eyes. We would highly recommend this style for a wedding suit (especially in three piece) or if you have a job which is customer facing / sales related.
November is World Vegan Month, when vegans around the world celebrate their lifestyle choice and champion others to do the same. And it seems more and more of us are making the switch. In 2018, there were 3.5 million registered vegans in the UK, up from around 540,00 in 2016, according to a study by The Vegan Society, which just happens to be celebrating its 75th birthday in 2019.Style Tips & Advice Celebrity Style
When it comes to style superstars, there is none more seminal, more chameleon-like and more innovative than David Bowie. As you may remember, we included the iconic star's ever-evolving look in our recent blog post on the suits that rocked. That’s why we were over the moon when Professor of Film and Cultural Studies, Dr Will Brooker, approached us to make a copy of Bowie’s legendary mustard-yellow suit.Celebrity Style King & Allen News
