Let The Right One In: Teenage vampires inspire ‘vintage’ looks

Let_the_right_one_in.jpgWhilst a pre-pubescent teen may not be the obvious inspiration for a menswear blog, the styling details in Swedish art-house vampire stunner Let the Right One In are so, well, stunning that they couldn’t go unmentioned. Lead character Oskar, works the tucked in boots look so well it makes a grown man feel inadequate. Such insouciance! The padded jackets, tone-matched sweater and scarf combos, not to mention the awesome blonde, feather cut-hair are enough to make me want to venture into the smelly world of vintage clothing. Well, almost.

These boots by Margiela are what Oskar would wear. At over £400 they’re definitely beyond his pocket-money but I reckon you could turn up something similar if you can face the vintage trawl. Match with plum cords and a sweater in this season’s blue for a Spring take on that 1970s Swedish vampire-fancier look.

PS. the film is highly recommended if you’re wondering what I’m on about. Let the Right One In is at cinemas now.

    日本人的にはやはりいかにもバーバリーバッグ というデザインが好まれるので登場回数が少ないのでしょう。

    通販でバーバリーアウトレット を購入するのはとってもお得な事が多いのです。
    そういう人にも一度通販でバーバリー財布 を買ってもらいたいですね。
    バーバリーシャツ は他の洋服と違って、シルエットも素材も想像がつきやすい場合が多いです。
