Brad Pitt is back. In cinema, the actor is one of the protagonists of the movie “Bullet Train”. Outside the big screen, the eternal Hollywood heartthrob makes several appearances on red carpets to promote the feature film. And that’s when he’s showing us a new version of himself—perhaps the best one. While he doesn’t put his classic looks aside, Pitt is definitely more fashionable than ever.
“I will say, it’s all about the breeze, the breeze is really nice… Very, very nice,” he told “Sky News” as he appeared surprising, at least in the eyes of the media, in a matching brown skirt paired with a blazer and a shirt. All linen and made exclusively for him by designer Haans Nicholas Mott.
Her opinions about wearing a skirt go even further. “I don’t know [porque estou usando]! We’re all going to die, so we’re going to mess it up,” he told Variety magazine.
Men’s skirts aren’t exactly new to fashion. Harry Styles, ASAP Rocky and Oscar Isaac have been doing this for a long time, each in their own way. And Brad Pitt seems to be jumping on the bandwagon, in contrast to the period when he was promoting the Oscar-winning film “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”, where he wore only the white and black suits common to men’s attire in red carpets.
The turnaround in the actor’s look, in fact, has been going on for a while. In 2017, when he spoke openly about his divorce with fellow actress Angelina Jolie for the first time, Pitt was photographed by the American “GQ” wearing less boxy clothes. Including a wool vest, in clicks that highlighted a certain fragility.
For the same publication, this time more recently, less than two months ago, dressed as David Bowie and appeared in a skirt once again.
“This is the stylist’s job”, comments fashion consultant Erick França to Our. “This professional does not aim to ‘put the artist in fashion’. It goes further. The clothes serve to present him to the public and the media. It is through this process that celebrities, like Brad Pitt, for example, reinsert themselves in the spotlight. Introducing a new persona”.
And it is precisely this “new persona” of Brad Pitt that has been stealing the scenes from the fashion pages on social networks. They don’t even seem to remember Timothée Chalamet anymore.
Starting with her first look chosen for the red carpet of “Bullet Train” — which will be the guiding thread of this analysis.
The actor wore a salmon-colored linen suit for the grand opening. A V-neck shirt appeared open and left some necklaces on display. Ideal look for the northern hemisphere summer, where such fashionista appearances are being made.
The shade of pink gained strength in another look used by the star. A tone-on-tone pink set that stood out for its zips in aqua green and mustard.
There are those who confuse even with the aesthetics of pajamas. But for this one, we can exemplify with another look even more suitable. A teal green with flowing fabric in a blazer with two front pockets.
All three of these looks represent the best of the last two years, between the beginning and the end (?) of the pandemic: the rise of homewear. In other words, with the loosening of confinement, the most comfortable and utilitarian pieces, previously restricted to sofa and bed environments, created wings — and new confections — and invaded the streets and great awards.
This is one of the pillars of the clothes created by the stylist Haans Nicholas Mott, responsible for all the costumes used by Brad Pitt in the previews of “Bullet Train”.
“I love working with Mr. Pitt because he has a clear sense of how he wants to be in the world and we can work in that space,” Haans Mott told GQ.
There’s a compromise between Brad’s vision and my freedom to navigate within it. Her sense of color, fit, texture and pattern is fully nuanced and genuinely special.”
More than wearing the clothes, Brad actively participated in the construction of each of the looks used by him.
Linen tailoring has undoubtedly become Brad Pitt’s favorite. All previous looks reinforce this. And to close with a flourish, the last set used by him brought the height of the color block — fashion trend in which clothes bring solid and strong colors, sometimes contrasting.
In a look worthy of the Brazilian flag, Pitt came up with baggy pants and a baggy blazer. For another pop of color, he added gold low-top sneakers Adidas x Gucci Gazelle — a collaboration between the sports brand and the Italian label, which sells for $850.
The sneaker model in question is a favorite not only for Brad Pitt, but also for the female audience. In a report prepared by Lyst Index, the piece with the proposal without gender appears as the 2nd among the most searched by women in the last three quarters.
The fact is that Brad Pitt is running away from the obvious with his latest looks, which turns out to be a relief in the eyes of those who follow the male looks at awards and film festivals, crowded with white and black suits. For those who want to be inspired, he seems willing to take on the role of icon. As long as he’s wearing linen.
