Mismatched Socks: Get the look with Kieran Culkin

News • 09 January 2024

As ‘Awards Season’ gets into its stride, with Hollywood descending upon LA for the 2024 Golden Globes this past weekend, it is clear that long-gone are the days of playing it safe when it comes to menswear – something we can see on and off the red carpet. From sequins to bold colours to mismatched socks, the best looks at the Golden Globes were sophisticated but playful, a chance to show personality and style.

Actor Kieran Culkin – styled in Dior and London Sock Company by stylist Michael Fisher – and his wife Jazz Charton on the red carpet at the Golden Globes 2024.

Among the best dressed was Succession star Kieran Culkin, who won the award for best actor in a TV drama. Styled by the brilliant celebrity stylist Michael Fisher – the man behind The Block Collection, Culkin added a twist to his sleek head-to-toe black Dior look with mismatched colourful socks from London Sock Company. He was shown flashing a pink sock and a purple sock combo to red carpet interviewers from WWD – specifically Pink Friday and Thistle Purple, two shades from London Sock Company’s Simply Sartorial collection.
