The London-born actor John Boyega is in New York selling his new film, Breaking, and whereas Boyega is not any stranger to a daring coloration (he wore a cherry-red swimsuit to the ESPYS final month), he took a extra tonal method this week. Actually, he busted out two monochromatic appears to be like in a single single day. The drastic coloration change—from darkish to mild—virtually seems like a delicate nod to his time within the Star Wars universe, outlined by the battle between the sunshine and darkish sides of the power.
To start out his day, Boyega went all-black, easy and to the purpose with a boxy, outsized T-shirt and slouchy cargo pants. The outfit’s actual star? Shiny black costume sneakers from Celine. Staying minimalist with the remainder of the outfit to focus on the flex-worthy sneakers is one hell of a method swerve.
Later within the day, Boyega did an entire wardrobe change and confirmed up wearing all-white for his look on The Every day Present. This time he went barely extra formal: a flowy jacket paired with a crisp white tee and high-waisted trousers. (Don’t sleep on the facility of a fantastic, plain white tee.) The one factor that did not change between the 2 outfits was the glimmering key pendant round his neck.
Each of those appears to be like pull from the wave of quiet luxurious cresting in menswear. It’s about dressing in traditional items that focus extra on the match and really feel than something overly showy—consider the simplistic-but-beautiful garments from The Row and Concern of God. Boyega’s Star Wars portrayal of stormtrooper rising right into a good-guy fighter helped flip him right into a family identify. However in the case of his off-screen vogue, make no mistake: each the sunshine and darkish sides of the fashion power have loads to advocate them.
