Decorating Ideas to Steal From Zoolander
A male model’s life is a precious, precious commodity. Like marble. Or a De Sede Terrazza sofa. Even if your décor style is not an ambi-turner, we’ve curated a collection of sterling accessories and furnishings to delight and inspire. Zoolander 2 hits theaters today, so why not take a cue from our favorite male models to welcome some really, really, ridiculously good-looking décor? Keep scrolling to shop the vibe.
The look Derek is best known for: chiseled and iconic. Sumptuous leather-on-chrome pairings along with bold one-of-a-kind statement pieces channel the same powerful sophistication. Call it the merman effect.
Le Tigre is a lot softer. It’s more of a catalog look used for footwear sometimes. Think light hues, clean, architectural silhouettes, and an easy transitional voice. Luxe man essentials in the way of boutique fragrances from the day (D-A-I-Y-E) spa are prerequisites.
Pay homage to everyone’s favorite space cadet with vibrant screen prints. Go for splashy color and ostentatious accents. Conversation pieces win out. Anything that reads break-dance fighting or warrants a “Cool story, Hansel.”
The world waited with bated breath for the newest Derek look. Stunning enough to stop a Chinese throwing star dead in its tracks, the Magnum mood calls for silvery detail and sharp lines. Keep it lean and mean.
Hansel’s style seamlessly mixes It status with Venice Beach cool. His loft is poised and ready to host a peyote-fueled rendezvous with Maori tribesman on any given weeknight. Words like beauty, handsomeness, and incredibly chiseled features are vanities he tries to steer clear of. It’s all about organic materiality (like what bark is made out of on a tree), chill vibes, and artifacts collected from world travels.
The catwalk is an endless parade of creative inspiration, from color trends to historical reference points. Go for sculptural furnishings that double as objets d’art. Mix in a few witty accessories and a healthy dose of over-the-top showmanship. It’s a walk-off.
The man who invented the piano-key necktie favors high-contrast color pairings in black and white, peppered with unexpected materials from Mongolian lamb to crocodile. Inspiration is everywhere for the designer, including lattés and pint-sized pets.
It is a fashion, a way of life inspired by the very homeless, the vagrants who make the city unique. The look calls for distinctive black-on-black décor with raw detailing and industrial found materials.
