When one hears Formula 1, it’s a given that the first name to pop up would be of the British racing driver- Lewis Hamilton. Holder of the maximum number of world titles ever since coming into play with 2007’s racing season, the motor star continues to be relevant even off the track, particularly as a fashion icon and a raging sneakerhead. Sir Hamilton’s love of fashion and style evolution in the 16 years since his debut has earned him the best seats at Fashion Week, being a frontier of Valentino ad campaigns, an invitation to the Met Gala, and being the cover star of Vanity Fair’s latest issue.
Aligning with his personality, quirky style, and matching jewelry, Hamilton doesn’t stick to classic established brands alone. As an environmentally conscious consumer and activist, he avidly supports young and upcoming brands and designers, especially those by POC, and with sustainability at the forefront.
Below, our curated board gives a glimpse into his style and some of his best-sported looks.
Laced with Love
Stylist Law Roach presented us with a “Pure Magic” look, as Hamilton himself describes, for the Met Gala 2021. Featuring a Lace skirt and shirt under a classic black suit by new talent Black designers Theophilio, Nicholson, and Jason Rembert, intending to represent diversity and inclusivity in the Fashion industry.
Shades of Gray
If one had to describe what “clean look” meant for men, it would most probably be this Gray but never gloomy look. Still keeping the cool boy vibes alive, the polished touch the look has due to the structured Vest adds character to the lighter wash cargo pants and sneakers.
Vanity Fair’s September issue cover star doesn’t shy away from Bold, and this all Pink Valentino Fall 22 outfit by Pierpaolo Piccioli stands to represent just that. It chooses to talk about the importance of self-expression, stands for strength and extravagance, breaking away from the ordinary, and is a loud and proud symbol of love and equality.
Off the track
Hamilton knows how to bring his A-game to the racetrack when he’s not racing but as a spectator. The racer has aced his easy, effortless “off-duty” look in this trusted jeans and breezy fit sweater, keeping it edgy by choosing a Loewe piece in vibrant green.
Best of Both Worlds
The ensemble by Louis Vuitton SS22 collection perfectly blended for that “sports meets formal,” manages to steal glances with its vibrant color. The look perfectly combines all elements of Lewis Hamilton’s style into one.
