Double-breasted jackets, pocket squares, colorful ties with elegant patterns, sunglasses for a relaxed look … the crown prince adopted a dandy look from a young age, hailed by one of the popes of fashion: Edward Enninful . And the editor of British Vogue did not fail to ask his secret to the son of Elizabeth II for an irreproachable style.
“I thought I was like a stopped clock”, dropped Prince Charles in the columns of Vogue, he who in 2019 had partnered with the brand Vin + Omi to create a collection of clothing made from nettles . “I care about details and colors and things like that – and color combinations. I’m lucky because I can find wonderful people who are brilliant designers who do things that I enjoy,” he explains, adding that “it is and because of this, [that he tries] to make them last longer.”
