When we think of high-end fashion, most people immediately think of luxury brands – Gucci, Dior, and so on. However, there is another brand, which has consistently produced stunning clothes for men that are neither expensive nor linked to an established luxury brand – GQ. Recently, the style publication focused on men’s fashion released a list of the top 100 items that they predict will be in demand in 2022. One of the items that made the list is a jumpsuit designed by none other than Robert Pattinson. Since his debut in the Harry Potter film series as Newt Scamander, Robert Pattinson has become a style icon, gracing the front covers of several style magazines. In fact, in 2022, he is projected to be the most popular style icon among millennials.
The Most Coveted Style Icon In 2022
To identify the most fashionable man of the year 2022, Future Inc. examined consumer trends and compiled a list of the must-haves that were most sought-after by millennials (Gen Z and those born after them). Based on anticipated sales, the style icon with the greatest appeal is Robert Pattinson.
Millennials view him as a style icon because of his classic good looks. Indeed, between the Harry Potter and the Twilight series, Robert Pattinson has become known for his chic yet edgy outfits. In addition to being a style icon, he is also among the highest-paid actors in the world, commanding handsome fees for his work.
The Suits That Made Robert Pattinson A Star
While most people recognize Robert Pattinson for his appearances in stylish films, he has actually been designing suits for men for over fifteen years. In fact, he began his formal suit collection for men under the luxury brand Jaeger after completing the filming of Twilight. Since then, he has branched out and designed suites for numerous other luxury brands, such as Savile Row Tailors, the Royal Naval College, and Fred Perry. Most notably, he is known for his design collaborations with the luxury brand Ralph Lauren. The latter designed a whole collection of suits for him, based on the actor’s personal preferences. However, perhaps the most successful collaboration to date is the partnership with British luxury brand Burberry.
A Rising Star And Design Collaboration With A Luxury Brand
In 2022, Robert Pattinson is expected to take over the reins of design at Burberry, having recently relinquished his positions at Ralph Lauren. The designer will reportedly give him full charge of the men’s custom clothing brand, as well as the design and development of all future collections. Interestingly, while at Ralph Lauren, he designed a collection of tuxedo shirts for the American fashion house. The shirts were modeled after the design of the classic British striped shirt – a shirt that most young men have in their wardrobe. The shirt will be manufactured for Burkberry by the Italian company Brioni, which will also produce the tuxedo for the actor.
One of the reasons that Robert Pattinson will be in high demand in 2022 is his extensive celebrity network. He is known to regularly attend prestigious events and parties, which gives him the opportunity to network with A-list celebrities. Between social media and his busy acting schedule, he keeps himself very well-plugged-in to the fashion industry. In fact, he has over a million followers on his official Twitter account, while his Instagram following is over 547,000.
Classic Yet Trendy
For those seeking classic yet trendy clothing designs, Robert Pattinson is the man to watch in 2022. In fact, as a child, he was obsessed with the work of English stylist and tailor, Charles Frederick Worth. Worth is often credited with revolutionizing men’s fashion, paving the way for the modern-day suit. In 1932, the year that Charles Worth died, his son, the late William Worth, created the company that is now known as GQ.
After completing his education at Eton College, Robert Pattinson worked for a number of years for his father’s construction business, becoming one of the best-known contractors in the United Kingdom. In 1992, he decided to leave the family business and began his career in fashion, working for a number of notable companies, including Burberry and Ralph Lauren. While at Ralph Lauren, he designed numerous pieces of outerwear, such as the iconic blue jumper that he wore during the filming of the Twilight series. In 2011, he co-founded the lifestyle magazine, The Edwardian, which was focused on lifestyle, art, and design. Now, he is set to expand his brand to include a formal wear and accessories collection for men and women.
In brief, in 2022, Robert Pattinson is set to redefine style, social media, and the way we look at classic garments. As an authoritative fashion voice that is both stylish and influential, he will be occupying an important place in our wardrobes for years to come.
