Thirty-five years after his death, few influencers have made as big an impact on men’s style as Steve McQueen. Even to this day, his presence in men’s fashion remains larger than ever. Deemed the King of Cool -- the man dressed only to please himself and never wore anything that got in the way of winning a race, fight, or woman.
His stylish, tailored, yet also functional wardrobe elevated his celebrity status from movie star to icon. When I think of my biggest style icon, no one comes to mind more than Steve McQueen. My favorite style of sunglasses are undoubtedly the folding Persol 714s, with custom blue lenses -- his signature.
For this shoot I tried to maintain a semi conservative look -- a clean navy v-neck sweater by Dolce & Gabbana over Hudson’s Sartor skinny white jeans. Paired with Alexander McQueen skull loafers and of course, the King of Cool’s folding Persols.
