For a young actor, the end of a blockbuster franchise meant the beginning of being asked a specific question: “What’s next?” (Just asking Daniel Radcliffe.) But while the prospects of next steps and new roles arrange themselves, the question “What’s next?” The power shift is just starting to really get involved in fashion.
Luckily for Finn Wolfhard, the 19-year-old actor plays Mike Wheeler on Netflix Strange things, all of which seem to be on the rise. While busy with music and other roles on the supernatural circuit (he got his turn on reboot It Franchising, Ghostbusters: Afterlifeand one recently The Addams . family CGI remake), he also became the face of Anthony Vaccarello’s Saint Laurent, redirecting an upstart Bob Dylan for the house for the first time. Fall campaign 2019 before going back to some wireframe specs to choose from for a Fall 2022 run.
So it makes sense that he will sport some YSL in the interim. But he actually played with Strange things season 4 came out in May, when he hit the red carpet in a black silk scarf and high-waisted sweatpants… and then returned with a different head-to-toe Saint Laurent look — a black silk jumpsuit, at that — at Cannes a few days later. Over the past few weeks, while promoting Guillermo del Toro .’s upcoming film Pinocchio adapted, Wolfhard went even further, wearing a checkered suit by British firm Daniel w. Fletcher, with split trousers and a corset vest, and a fun pastel pink knit shirt by another London-based brand, King & Tuckfield. All are classic and romantic, it’s a uniform worth developing.

With Instagram, it has never been easier for young men to get involved in fashion, but it also has another benefit. What do they say, about how to dress for the job you want?
