Winter Is Definitely Not Coming To Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s Wardrobe
With the final series of Game Of Thrones here, so is winter. What does that mean for you non-Game Of Thrones fans out there? It means that George RR Martin’s White Walkers are arriving in the fictional Westeros to fight for the throne and with them comes plenty of ice and freezing cold climes.
Yet, while on screen he’s hedging his bets in gaudy, gold armour, off screen Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (AKA Jaime Lannister) is laughing in the face of the chillier months. Stepping out in Los Angeles, the GOT actor stood out like a bell ringer for spring, thanks to his choice of suit. Following in the footsteps of John Legend, who earlier wore not one but two brightly coloured suits, Coster-Waldau donned what is probably the boldest suit we’ve seen since that Alexander McQueen suit Timothée Chalamet wore earlier this year – a bright peacock blue single-breasted two-piece.
And he didn’t stop there. The Kingslayer paired his turquoise suit with a floral shirt (and, yes, florals for spring are a must), proving that the winter months are well and truly behind us (we hope) and the future is unabashedly bright and colourful. On screen he walks a fine line between hero and villain, yet when when he's not filming he's making somewhat heroic moves like this.
And in doing so he got to grips with one of the big trends we saw at the men's shows for Spring/Summer 2019. From pastel-blue suits from Kim Jones at Dior to lime-green tailoring at Acne Studios and Versace (as well as bubblegum-pink at the latter), across the board moody neutrals are being left on the wayside and punchy hues are taking centre stage.
