Bella Hadid is the queen of street style. She goes sans stylist, (yep she dresses herself) and she has all of us fashion girls in a chokehold with her looks, which range from emerging designers to great vintage pieces. As a true Bella Hadid style stan, I have to admit that recently, someone else has caught my eye in regards to their looks. Who is that person you ask? It’s Bella’s boyfriend, Marc Kalman.

His sartorial choices are every fashion girl’s dream, and if you haven’t noticed yet, it’s time to start paying attention. The art director is a pretty private guy — his Instagram isn’t public and there’s very little trace of him online (another reason why he’s our current dream guy, girls — minimal online presence!). After a little digging, he appears to work in the fashion and art space. According to 1985, he designed album artwork for branding for Travis Scott and Seventeen reported that other clients that he’s worked with include Smoke x Mirrors, Milk Studios MADE Fashion Week and KNG Records.

With a stacked résumé in fashion and art, it’s no surprise that this guy has it. As far as fashion power couples go, currently, Hadid and Kalman are my Kimye (from their heyday of course) and it’s because they both have such a strong sense of personal style. Bella is known for her funky fashion risks and everything she puts on feels authentically her. The same can be said for Kalman. His laidback look compliments Hadid’s adventurous style. But, it’s his cool factor that really solidifies these two as a fashion couple to watch.

The art director has an affinity for ’90s-inspired oversized silhouettes from baggy jeans, low-slung shorts, and grungy Dr. Martens oxford shoes. He also has a thing for Y2K mainstays such as ribbed tank tops. In fact, Kalman’s love for tank tops with baggy bottoms is reminiscent of David Beckham from the late ’90s early 2000s.

The reason Hadid has so many of us fashion gals taking notice of her looks is her ability to mix high and low, which allows her devoted fans (such as myself) to recreate her outfits. The same can be said about Kalman. With a fashion background and a supermodel girlfriend it’s no surprise that Kalman has such a great sense of style.

As a couple, these two do a great job at wearing looks that just go with each other without feeling too matchy-matchy. He’s not stealing the show, he’s enhancing it. If you want your man to start dressing like him…I’ll show you exactly how — but be warned, cool factor, swag, overall It guy energy are not included, unfortunately.

Below are a few more of my favorite Hadid and Kalman style moments as well as a guide to give your man’s look the Marc Kalman treatment.

The marc kalman starter pack

Okay ladies (and gents if you’re here too) this is how you can give your man the Marc Kalman treatment. I’ve created the starter pack below for the must-have pieces to achieve this look. You can thank me later.

Tank Tops

SUPREME x HANES THREE-PACK TANK TOPS, $74, SHOP NOW

Kalman has been spotted in these Supreme x Hanes white tanks. If you’re wondering if the teeny-tiny red box logo makes that much of a difference, no, but I did say the guy has swag. (Don’t worry the $6 pack of Hanes tanks work too.)

Baggy Jeans

LEVI’S VINTAGE 560 LOOSE JEANS, $118, SHOP NOW

Next up, you need a pair of incredibly baggy pants. I opted for vintage Levi’s (they must to be oversized and low slung.)

Dickies

DICKIES 874 WORK STRAIGHT LEG PANT, $50, SHOP NOW

What unites skaters, fashion boys, creative directors, and construction workers you ask? A great pair of Dickies. Add ’em to the list.

Plaid Shorts

LEVI’S VINTAGE PLAID SHORTS, $19, SHOP NOW

Kalman has been seen sporting plaid shorts in two different colorways. Upon further research, I discovered that they appear to be Vintage Levi’s SilverTab. Brief history lesson: the Silver Tab was introduced in 1988 and defined ’90s grunge denim with its baggy styles. So based on Kalman’s affinity for ’90s-inspired grunge this all tracks. Unfortunately, SilverTab pieces are very rare and incredibly hard to find. So all I have to offer are these vintage plaid Levi’s. If you want the real deal, I wish you the best of luck on your search.

Brown Belt

OUR LEGACY BROWN LEATHER BELT, $175, SHOP NOW

Marc Kalman wears a skinny vintage-looking brown belt to hold up his sagging pants/shorts so you’re going to want a skinny vintage-looking brown belt to hold up your sagging pants/shorts too.

Dr. Martens

DR. MARTENS 1461 LACE-UP OXFORD SHOES, $178, SHOP NOW

We cannot forget the most important detail — Marc Kalman’s go-to pair of shoes are these Dr. Martens oxfords, so you need these, now.

There you have it, your official guide to amping up your boyfriend’s cool factor. Now, does anyone know if Marc Kalman has a brother? (Asking for a friend.)
