Dapper Keepers of The Met Gala 2016

Dapper Keepers of The Met Gala 2016

The proffered judgment of digitisation prevails as the bereavement of the human touch in endless aspects, and this year it is as well the inspiration for the Met Gala - one of the biggest fashion events for the most exclusive crowd in the scene hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Bedecked with big names in bespoke outfits, 'Manus x Machina' explores a reality displaced by technological ubiquity and its transgression into haute couture.

Despite the vapidity of forced adaptation as a thematic, celebrities from everywhere showed the world that even constraints proliferate creativity, and we at Gnome & Bow are in supreme awe of the talents behind these best dressed men on our watchlist.

Outfit - Gucci tuxedo, cane, shoes; Cartier brooch


2) Rami Malek

Where detailing a draped blazer by way of an aperture is made pompous, it is fettered by a lone button that bridges a noble, sobering fit.

5) Alexander Skarsgard

Evolved classicism in quintessence: Where an old world tuxedo nestles crimson in hard palette is befitted by only that tarzan-worthy jawline and clean comb-back.

Outfit - Louis Vuitton ensemble


6) David Blasberg

The fashion guru boasts best his sassy confidence in a display of comfort with loafers in a prestigious event. It's almost frightening how he's wearing it like a peripheral.

tThe irreverence of embroidery encapsulates an exciting sophistication for a man of vigour; it is at once assertive and tempered, a control of confidence telling of a man in lavish.

Outfit - Gucci ensemble


8) Lewis Hamilton

Bearing some wicked semblance to Hamilton's favor for the thrill, a riveting bloom of motifs and weave decides against formality for an overtly bold style sans the aggression.

9) Michael B Jordan

An inherent reliance on his street chic style looks to the principle of minimalism in ultra sleek comfort, cleverly converging his cheeky self and urbanity into one look.

Outfit - Very befitting, H&M
