Yesterday I was lucky enough to dress actor Dalip Sondhi for his appearance at the launch of his new Netflix show Tidelands held at Brisbane’s GOMA. The devilishly handsome actor, originally hailing from the UK, stars in the new series and so in keeping with his persona on-screen, and off, we worked together to create two looks that he would be able to wear across both screening nights in both Brisbane and Sydney. After chatting with the actor and learning about his style we decided to edge on the air of sophistication with a modern twist and with minimal accessories we together picked out two looks that we feel worked for the two occassions.
The first night Dalip went very formal with a cobalt suit by Australian designer MJ Bale teamed with a white shirt and simple black belt that we styled with an open collar and a loosely done pocket square. We opted for a toned down look when it comes to suiting so that we could keep within his style without making him look too stylised. The care-free and down to earth gentleman obliged me with keeping a little tradition in a printed pocket square and belt and as we teamed the look with suave looking shoes we decided an unbuttoned look would work well for the Premiere of Australia’s most talked about new series. The second night was a much more subdued look with where we teamed a cream blazer with a pink and white candy-striped shirt and tailored denim which was elevated by accessorising in the way of a block coloured tie and pocket square and beige brogues.
