Antonio Banderas, the 55-year-old actor has been studying fashion design at Central Saint Martins in London. Last May fe has presented his first collection in collaboration with Selected, a Scandinavian high-street brand that is led by designer Daniel Struzinski.
Struzinksi tried to capture Banderas’ “everyday man” dress style. Banderas declared “In the morning, I wear jeans, something comfortable, sneakers, a T-shirt and maybe a leather jacket, and I go out”. “If I have meetings, dress a little bit more elegant so I wear chinos, a blazer to have a meeting with the producer, or a cocktail dress. At night If I have a red carpet, I prefer using a tuxedo or a black suit.”
The coats and jackets linings are Banderas’ signature shade of ocean blue, inspired by his homeland Spain. The functional leather jacket, designed for motorcycle wear, has gold detailing, which Banderas said is inspired by the gold and leather outfits that Versace did back in the ’80s.
