Style Icon : Marlon Brando

marlon brandoWith James Dean, Marlon Brando is one of the Hollywoodian stars who became famous in the fifties and now considered as legends.

Member of the Actor Studio, Marlon Brando has a very long filmography : Mutiny on the Bounty, Julius Caesar, Apocalypse now

But it is with his performances inThe wild one, A streetcar named desire, On the waterfront and The Godfather that his style was the most remarkable.


Un tramway nommé désir

A streetcar named desire

Inspired by the play by Tennessee Williams, A streetcar named desire is the movie which made Marlon Brando a star… And a sex symbol.

Simply dressed with a white or light grey tee-shirt or with atight-fitting tank top, he plays a violent and rough, but sensual character who drives his sister-in-law crazy, with Vivien Leigh as Blanche Dubois.

He became the embodiment of manhood.

The wild one Marlon BrandoThe wild one

One of the most memorable Marlon Brando’s looks was taken out of this 1953 movie, inspired by a true story.

While playing arebel biker leading a gang, Marlon Brando wears a leather jacket, a cap, leather gloves, and a denim rolled up over his boots.

Try to look wild, lean nonchalantly on a bike : here you go, you look just like Brando.

OK, we have seen striped shirts over and over this whole summer…

But why wouldn’t we take the horizontal stripes out of the closets this fall again, and wear them with a basic blazer and light trousers ?

The result is a very chic yet casual look : gentleman on the seaside.

Approved by Marlon Brando ! (and what is good for Marlon is good for you !)

A soundtrack which is one of the most famous movie themes, cult dialogues…

And an unforgivable character : Don Vito Corleone, godfather at the head of a powerful mafia family.

Tuxedo and bow tie obligatory… With a spotless white shirt.
