Heartstopper breakthrough Package Connor has, unsurprisingly, acquired the world’s greatest manufacturers calling. After a slew of left-field suits in Loewe, he possible has artistic director Jonathan Anderson on pace dial. He is a fan of Chinese language-born, London-based designer Feng Chen Wang. There are too many good fits from Scandi model Pimples Studios to say. However for all of the unique fresh-off-the-runway designs, he is acquired a deep-rooted love for a model that each man can get their fingers on: Carhartt. And hear: nothing says Huge Match™ like Carhartt.
This week, Connor attended the premiere of Black Canine in the course of the 67th BFI London Movie Competition in help of his mate Georges Jacques. It was a crimson carpet gig, positive. However the 19-year-old dressed down in a muted match made up of a Carhartt chore jacket, emblazoned with the model’s offshoot WIP branding on the left breast and a molecular emblem that reads ‘89: a reference to the sub-label’s delivery yr. Paired with clear black slacks (in all probability Carhartt too) and beater sneakers, it was a easy look executed exceptionally properly.
This is not the primary time that Connor has gone down the Carhartt path. He is tapped into the curious case of the sudden Carhartt growth alongside the likes of Justin Bieber, Channing Tatum, Austin Butler and Kaia Gerber. Earlier this yr, he linked up along with his Heartstopper castmates for a bit reunion in London’s Covent Backyard. And sure, there was a Carhartt-heavy match. The place his mates wore rainbow flags and shorts, he wore a washed-out navy jacket to London Pleasure with a pair of denims. He is worn black Carhartt zip-ups to different premieres. And his on-screen character Nick has his personal tan Carhartt zip-up.
It is Regular Man stuff. As a result of, apart from being one of many UK’s most recognizable 19-year-olds, Connor is only a regular man who likes to decorate like one within the stuff that at all times appears good. Connor advised British GQ final yr that he was “discovering that vogue can be utilized as a swimsuit of armour,” and it appears his Carhartt jacket is simply that.
