Style Icon - George Lamb

My published editorial -

 The dapper silver fox of TV, George Lamb had to sneak his way onto our iconic best dressed list at some point and the sooner the better we’d say.

man of many talents, Mr Lamb has proven he has kinetic charm both on radio and television as a presenter of such hugely successful shows as; BBC Radio 6 Music and Big Brother’s Little Brother (BBLB) and has worked with industry greats like the DJ Marc Hughes.

Not only being able to seduce an audience of reality TV obsessed strangers and create the perfect party play list, George Lamb is of course one of London’s perfectly turned out men, proving that London men are some of the globes best dresses.

His dedication to menswear has led George Lamb to team up with Adrien Sauvage a must have designer who believes in bringing new life to the suit. Together they have created a new label A.Sauvage with Sauvage at the creative helm and Lamb acting the muse and face of the brand.

George Lamb has created a look and style of gentlemanly elegance, and always appears cultivated and perfectly turned out. It’s this sort of seamless attention to details that gives George his foppish charm. Obviously taking his daily dress seriously, he follows Hardy Amies mantra “A man should look as if he had bought his clothes with intelligence, put then on with care and then forgotten about them”. His uniformed look of slim fit tailoring to show off his lithe figure comprises of a suit often in a three piece navy mohair from A.Sauvage W1 and accessorised with coloured v neck sweaters, ties, tie clips and his signature silvery floppy mop which produce an end result so natural and compact it’s hard to imagine him decked out in any other way.

He favours A.Sauvage for suiting but isn’t afraid for fraternising with enemy brands, getting his shirts from Charvet in Paris and if he does feel the need to stray from his signature staples, only the best will do and roughs it in J Brand jeans, rolled up chinos and espadrilles.

His style is quirky and unique and he has created a look that defines him and puts him in a league of his own. Proving it does well to be clever with your style and image, follow trend to a point, but stay true to your own integral brand identity and remain confident in your individuality.
