Think Outside the Black and White
Breathe new life into traditional formalwear by thinking outside the traditional black-and-white colour scheme.

Irish actor Barry Keoghan was a shining example of the monochromatic trend on the red carpet of the Golden Globe awards, with his striking head-to-toe sky blue Louis Vuitton peak-lapel suit.

The Fabelmans star, Gabriel LaBelle, made a poignant fashion statement on the red carpet by embracing the 2022 Pantone colour of the year, periwinkle blue, for his three-piece suit and bow tie combo. The expert tailoring of the suit and the sleek periwinkle blue hue came together to create a striking and unforgettable look.
Adam Scott brought a bold and refreshing approach to the red carpet at the Golden Globes with his teal ensemble. His tailored Paul Smith suit in a lush, green wool-mohair fabric featured emerald lapels and a sleek black cummerbund, exuding a sense of sophistication and style.
