How Lewis Hamilton conquered F1 in style | EQVVS
A five-time champion on the grid, a style icon off it.
After winning a remarkable fifth World Championship, Lewis Hamilton has etched his name into Formula One history. The 33-year-old is now only the third man in history to ever win five titles – and sits third in the all-time list behind Juan Manuel Fangio and, of course, the legend that is Michael Schumacher.
So, with his legendary status confirmed on the track, we turn an eye to his life off it as we dissect just how the F1 Champion conquered the world in style.
Attention to detail
One thing we love about Lewis Hamilton is he proves that looking after the details pays dividends. It means that even when he’s wearing simple basics, he still retains maximum style.
Think sunglasses, jewellery and piercings, all of which come together to create Hamilton’s signature look. Plus, just look at the finely preened facial hair. No wonder he glides around those tracks.
King of bling
Perhaps one of his most recognisable traits is his love of big bling. You won’t often find him without diamond diamonds in his ears, a TAG Heuer on his wrist and gold around his neck.
On race day, Hamilton dresses up his team gear with large pendants and chains for a dramatic look. He usually ends up wearing gold on the podium after races, too.
Showing the world that he’s certainly not shy, Hamilton has delivered an array of ensembles that have divided opinion in the fashion world.
When it comes to taking chances with what he wears though, Lewis Hamilton delivers the exact risks you’d expect from someone who is used to overtaking people at 200mph. Sometimes they don’t pay off, but when they do they’re glorious.
Dressing for the occasion
Being a world-renowned F1 driver isn’t easy, you know. Just think of the high-class parties on the French Riviera, dining with royalty in Dubai, and attending colourful carnivals in Brazil. Of course, each one requires a unique and completely different approach when it comes to what to wear. Pretty stressful, right?
When it comes to a big occasion, Hamilton has proved time and again he has no problem making a statement.
Earlier this year, Hamilton was announced as Tommy Hilfiger’s global ambassador. Since then he’s spearheaded his own line with the brand, lead a collaboration with Mercedes and has forayed into the world of sustainable fashion (is there anything he can’t do?).
He’s also been caught rocking – and absolutely nailing – the brand in his own time.
