It’s indisputable that Paul Mescal has taken the world by storm with his meteoric rise. Since making his acting debut in Normal People in 2020, the Irish actor has established himself as a household name thanks to the critical acclaim for his performances, an Academy Award nomination and a forthcoming role as Stanley Kowalski in Tennessee Williams’s iconic A Streetcar Named Desire. But Mescal’s fashion choices at appearances, thanks to the help of stylist Felicity Kay, have also garnered attention.
For Jimmy Kimmel Live in New York this week, the 27-year-old Aftersun star delivered an ensemble that was created by another exceptional Irish talent: Simone Rocha. The look featured a baby blue and pink striped button-up shirt with pearlescent details on the collar (from Rocha’s debut men’s collection for spring/summer 2023), black smart trousers and a black leather pair of lace-up boots.
In recent years, menswear designs have taken a softer turn on the runways. Today, the rules of men’s fashion are still being dismantled by A-listers, including the likes of Harry Styles, Jaden Smith and now Mescal.
