Dressing Music’s Heavy Hitters For The Grammys
The award season is in full-affect and the next annual event on the junket is the Grammys. This weekend music’s megastars will transcend on the Staples Center in Los Angeles to celebrate the most memorable songs of the past year.
With millions of fans looking onward, it’s pivotal that performers get things right on music’s biggest night. A statement outfit is a key way for singers to amplify the attitude and tone they wish to convey. Artists need to balance their personal style with a sense of drama to create an iconic on-stage look.
We’ve offered bold sartorial suggestions for some of the most buzzworthy men planning to attend on Sunday, February 12th.
Bruno Mars is a consummate showman who always puts on an entertaining performance, and his Grammy number promises to be no exception. The 24K Magic hitmaker is favoured for spinning out infectious pop hooks that reference rhythmic funk music of decades past. It seems fitting that his outfit also reverberate with retro appeal. We’d love to see Mars pair one of his trademark silk shirts with tailored separates in a monochromatic palette. (It’s a fresh take on a classic style that complements his up-tempo music.)
Abel Tesfaye, better known as pop sensation The Weeknd, is one of the most anticipated acts set to grace the Grammy stage. The Toronto-born trailblazer will be accompanied by French electro duo Daft Punk to perform chart-topping tracks like Starboy. It would only be apropos if the R&B vocalist wore a youthful outfit to embrace his status as a nocturnal partier with artistic edge. We would dress him in urban streetwear emblazoned with shimmering metallic accents that echo his futuristic new sound.
Some occasions just call for the perfect black tux. James Corden’s appointment as host of The 59th Annual Grammy Awards happens to be one of those extraordinary times. We’d recommend the funny man dress in timeless tailoring to capture his charming British demeanour. The beloved comedian and carpool karaoke singer would look debonair in one of TOM FORD’s distinct designs. These sleek tuxedos are ergonomically constructed for a universally flattering look that commands presence when taking centre stage.
