Whilst 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.
