The 2017 Edition of the Cannes Film Festival in Menswear

The 2017 edition of the Cannes Film Festival took place from 17to 28 May. It was the 70th edition of the world-famous French film festival held in the beautiful south of France.

Being an event that lasted over a few days, there were many red carpet events where celebrities from far and wide showcased their style and fashion.

Discover a selection of the men who attended the 2017 Cannes Film Festival in our fashion edit.



Jeremy Scott



Moschino designer Jeremy Scott, who is known for his crazy runway creations and outlandish personal style choices, wore a very surprising… suit on one of the days of the Cannes Film Festival. The look is provocative and pushed the norm, which is what makes it remarkable.



Josh Kaye



Production designer Josh Kaye, mostly known for the 2014 film “Paint” wore a blue, peak-lapel Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello jacket. Blue is a great alternative to the classic black suit, especially for daytime and for the summer. Blue is also color that is mature, but which makes you look extremely youthful and stylish.



Josh Hartnett



Actor Josh Hartnett looked mighty dapper in his classic evening suit. We enjoyed the mix of a peak lapel with a small, pointy bow tie. Well done!



Robert Pattinson



US actor Robert Pattison wore a casual blue jacket with a very casual tie. We really enjoyed his look, which says very much “holiday”, “film” and “sea”. In the end, aren’t these the terms that define the Cannes Film Festival?



André Téchiné



French screenwriter and director André Téchiné looked amazing in a rather casual look at Cannes. This was one of our favorite looks from the festival, as it was very simple, but followed all the great sartorial rules: a good fit, well accessorized (we loved the sunglasses and the belt wasn’t bad either) and a great attitude.



Sung Joon



Korean actor Sung Joon wore a balanced high-low look by mixing a dressy jacket and pants with a casual shirt and sneakers. If you keep it cohesive by using the same color as Sung did, you can really pull such a look off with great success!



Adam Sandler



Is that Adam Sandler on the right? Yes, it is! Joined by Ben Stiller and Dustin Hoffman, Adam was quite a presence at Cannes this year. Maybe it’s the mustache, maybe it’s the suit or maybe Adam has a new attitude, but he really made a good impression on us this year.


It looks like the south of France is a place that is good not only for sunbathing, swimming and films, but also for fashion. It’s great to see a film event held in such a beautiful setting such as the French Riviera and to discover the fashions that are derived from it.
