Stylist: Marc Forné
Groomer: Bosco Montesinos
Being fashionable and eco-conscious is a thing which many aspire to be nowadays and whenever there is a chance for improvement, we think it is good to highlight it.
Take Manu Ríos and his dapper ensemble for last year’s British Fashion Awards; are you intrigued now? Then keep on scrolling.
For the award show, Ríos wore an H&M emerald-green blazer in a mono-fibre fabric made of recycled polyester from textile waste, paired with a black H&M Essentials shirt and a pair of trousers from a previous H&M Conscious Exclusive collection.
According to the brand, the jacket is part of a sustainability-focused collection called the Innovation Metaverse Design Story which blends the craftsmanship of high fashion with the fantasy of virtual wardrobes.
“The table of stars was hosted at the awards evening by H&M’s creative advisor Ann-Sofie Johansson and by H&M’s assortment designer Ella Soccorsi, both of whom oversee the Innovation Stories platform. Each guest had chosen a look from the collection that they felt best expressed their personality following a series of fittings in London.”
Manu accessorized the look with two Cartier Love rings on his right index finger and his right ring finger, complementing everything with a pair of black square-toe Chelsea boots.
His makeup and hairstyling was courtesy of Bosco Montesinos, who–as always–used Sebastian Professional products to style the Spanish actor’s hair, since he is also an ambassador for the brand.
In an interview with Zak Maoui, Style Editor of GQ, Ríos described his style and what he likes: “I wouldn’t really know how to put my style into words, because I think it has changed a lot over time. Most of the time, I feel like experimenting with my choices – I have a very open mind when I think of fashion and I don’t like to limit myself, but I always draw the line on what makes me feel comfortable and fits within my style. I think the key for a look to work is that you feel at ease and empowered when wearing it.”
He also mentioned the importance of confronting himself with his stylist Marc Forné and his preferred color: “When it comes to my fashion choices, I work hand-in-hand with my stylist and we always try to give it a more daring touch, or get out of my comfort zone a bit and go further while always trying to feel comfortable with what I’m wearing. […] I feel very confident whenever I’m wearing black.”
As the heartthrob said himself, Ríos clearly draws some lines whenever he’s walking a red carpet or attending afterparties. He dared a bit more while being out and about for Paris Fashion Week some days ago, not giving up on comfortability (check the images below).
Nevertheless he is one of those guys who would look good in anything: he’s practically a model. And with a face like that, many men and women would gladly forgive him for being a bit shy when it comes to fashion dares.
The Fashion Awards is a fundraiser for the BFC Foundation and focuses on celebrating excellence in the fashion industry and supporting the future pipeline of creative talent.
The BFC Foundation supports the future growth and success of the British fashion industry by focusing on three areas: Education, Grant-Giving & Business Mentoring and the Institute of Positive Fashion.
