‘The Crown’ Part 5: Back to the Barn blazer and jacket
Elsewhere in the UK drama today, Netflix has released a new trailer for the upcoming fifth season of the series. Crown, which begins where season four ended: with the breakdown of the turbulent marriage of Crown Prince (now King!) Charles and Princess Diana. That brings us into the early ’90s, which means we’re not just stepping into the reality of Lady Di fashion king street fashionbut we’ll see more in the highly intentional, idiosyncratic wardrobe of Charles III — who, in 2022, will become a king of men’s fashion.
Charles’ personal style is notoriously unchanged over the past half century: he still wears the same coats he’s owned for decades, and at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle , he wore a morning coat that he had worn since the mid-80s. The king dressed in a way that only one man had seen in a blazer and low-buttoned trousers since he stop. wearing shorts when I was young maybe. Like Rachel Tashjian, former GQ fashion critic and royal style reporter, put it back in 2020“I wonder if anyone in the world has ever looked so comfortable at home in a suit.”
In the trailer, we see Charles (played by Dominic West this season; Elizabeth Debicki plays Diana) still shoving his hand into the pocket of his blazke coat, right underneath one of the many brightly colored ties. vibrant, textured and coordinated squares. At Balmoral, he and the rest of the Royal Family would trade their suits for coats from Barbour’s warehouse, lending those coats. “Seduction in the way of an idle noble” the call is certainly reinforced their new popularity.
With the royal couple’s pending divorce, amid another drama, the center of Crownof the fifth season, their standout wardrobe may be the only one that hasn’t been compromised.
