Whether you agree or not the number one trend of all-time is standing out. Whether that be an extra bright tartan jacket or a super minimal raggedy crewneck, making a new piece stand out is typically the first step in the beginning of a full-on trend.
A new menswear style that fits this mold precisely is the latest in designer add-on designer accessory. Although we are still in January, 2019 has become the year of the human harness for men and Louis Vuitton currently has the reins.
Michael B. Jordan, one of Hollywood's biggest blockbuster stars, donned the yet-to-be-released multi-color camo harness by Louis Vuitton c/o the head of menswear design, Virgil Abloh, during this year's Screen Actors Guild Awards.
The harness has been getting major play as of late and this wasn't even its first red carpet appearance. Timothée Chalamet, Golden Globe nominee and star of Beauitful Boy wore a similar harness by Louis Vuitton, except with black sequins covering the piece.
It's hard to say how mainstream we'll see the harness go, but it's safe to say award season is making it one of the most-talked about menswear pieces in a long-time.
