Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) is one of the most talked about men in the entertainment industry. From his popular comedy series Atlanta (which he created and stars in, and also serves as a writer, executive producer, and director) to his mega music hit ‘This Is America (whose music video amassed 32 million views in just two days), it seems there is no talent box the Californian native can’t tick.
And let’s not forget about his stellar way of dressing; you won’t see Glover pouting on red carpets in fail-safe suits and turtlenecks, instead the 35-year-old likes to step outside the comfort box; whether it be with tailored suits in 1970s inspired earthy orange and brown tones, or casual co-ords in dazzling purples and reds.
At the Solo: A Star Wars Movie premiere (in which Glover plays Lando Calrissian), Glover stepped out in head-to-toe black and tan courtesy of fashion house Gucci. The look consisted of a Gucci two button notch lapel Heritage suit, Gucci x Dapper Dan V-neck sweater with GG print, and Gucci brown leather loafers with House Web and GG detail. In this look, Glover delivered a masterclass in a) how to wear brown (one the hardest colours to pull off), b) how to stand-out wearing a single designer head-to-toe and c) how a V-neck sweater is much more impactful that the classic white button down shirt. At another event for Solo, Glover turned heads in red, stepping out in a 70s style crimson suit and cherry-hued shirt, which he teamed with a gold chain and white leather loafers. And at the Black Panther premiere, Glover once again showcased his love for breaking the rules when he stepped out in a bright orange Dolce & Gabbana suit which he teamed with a black-and-orange printed shirt and black suede loafers.
If he’s not rocking a suit at press events, Glover’s second favourite option is a knitted-polo-shirt-and-chino combo. If you’re looking for casual outfits for a dinner date, look no further than the red tailored chinos Glover wore with a red-and-black-striped knitted polo T-shirt and slip-on loafers at the Cannes Film Festival last year.
