Activities that require a harness: rock climbing, high-lining, competitive horseback riding, weird sex games, and if you’re Timothée Chalamet: the Golden Globes award show.
The very (very!) cool kid every girl had a crush on from 4th to 12th grade stepped onto tonight’s red carpet sporting the recreational tool. Chalamet paired the equipment with an all-black ensemble, a full head of hair, smoldering good looks, and a Cool Mom.
The harness is custom Louis Vuitton by Virgil Abloh. The pieces that walked down the runway at the men’s spring/summer ’19 show were plain—unbefitting of Chalamet or the Golden Globes. The key element of Chalamet’s harness is its bedazzled nature, the craft hour flair, the same sparkle in his eye that the teen heartthrob has when he spots a peach. Never forget Chalamet is a theater kid at heart and a sparkly harness is the most theater-kid item in the universe. Got a late night dress rehearsal for Pippin at 9:30pm? There’s a shimmer harness for that. Should you have been cast as Roger in the Rent TV remake? Show them with a sparkle harness.
And like with any good Hypebeast, there’s a good woman behind them propping them up, funding cops, and waiting in line during third-period algebra. Chalamet’s mom is also wearing clothes designed by Abloh, from his own line Off-White. “MOM!”
Abloh’s disciples have hit the red carpet and all that’s left is for Chalamet to win a “Golden Globe,” thank his “Mom,” not text his girlfriend back, and post one mean fit pic.
