Dennis Trillo Made the Suit Exciting Again at the Venice Film Festival

With the help of Francis Libiran, of course.

By now, you've probably seen Dennis Trillo's Instagram posts where he shared his excitement about getting to attend the 78th Venice International Film Festival (along with a couple of Bong Joon-ho selfies) for On the Job: The Missing 8. There's one thing we missed from the actor's series of posts, however: the suit he wore to walk the red carpet.

We know, we know. In the age of boundary-pushing male red carpet fashion, a suit isn't exactly the most exciting thing to wear these days. But, trust us, when we say that you have to check out the bespoke Francis Libiran to make you rethink your stance on suits.

The spin on the classic tux made use of Libiran's signature art deco design pattern on the sleeves which made Trillo stand out, putting him in good company with Timothée Chalamet, paired with Shoepatos cap-toe oxfords.

It's a simple design change, but it definitely made a more memorable statement than a classic tux. And Trillo pulled it off by keeping everything else toned down, from the bow tie to the oxford down to his watch of choice (a Rolex GMT-Master II, in case you were wondering).

The actor's Venice Film Festival looks don't stop there. For the night's festivities, he changed it up by donning a barong, by Libiran once again, to hang out with Bong Joon-ho, Chloe Zhao, Erik Matti, and Quark Henares.

The next time you put on a black suit, consider taking a page out of Trillo's style book.
