Oscar-nominated actor Chiwetel Ejiofor teamed up with men’s e-commerce site MR.PORTER on a dope editorial spotlighting new arrivals from Bottega Veneta, Prada, Tom Ford and more. Photographed by Serge Leblon and styled by Eilidh Greig, the actor dishes on his new role as Peter in Mary Madelene while providing a tutorial on dressing like a grown ass man— something that comes pretty easy to the A-lister who’s brought legendary characters from 12 Years A Slave‘s Solomon Northup to A Season in the Congo’s Patrice Lumumba to life.
Rocking tailored pieces like Tom Ford’s buttery suede shirt-jacket and Margaret Howell’s linen camp shirt, Ejiofor hits the streets of London while illustrating the art of casual cool. The takeaways? Invest in kick-ass outerwear, stock up on tailored basics and make dusty blue your go-to spring shade.
