Assassin’s Creed Fashion Watch

With the release of two new Assassin’s Creed titles this week, Unity and Rogue, it’s time to take a closer look at the fashion choices of these lethal freedom fighters. In this article, we will rate the main assassins from the series based on their wardrobes. Get ready to delve into the world of assassin fashion and see who comes out on top.

Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad

Altaïr is responsible for establishing the iconic style of the Assassin order. His outfit exudes understated elegance, with ornate details on his arm guard and a bronze girdle that holds his throwing knives. The red sash adds a pop of color, showing that assassins can still enjoy a night out. We also appreciate how Altair incorporated his love of ornithology with the beaked hood. Overall, Altair is the epitome of assassin fashion.

Ezio Auditore da Firenze

An Italian assassin with a flair for fashion, Ezio takes Altair’s outfit to the next level. He adds a leather spaulder, a cape over his left shoulder, and an extended shin guard for practicality. The real showstopper is his ornate Assassin insignia belt buckle. Although it may not help him blend into a crowd, it definitely adds a cool factor. Ezio is the assassin diva and loving every minute of it.

Ratonhnhaké:ton Connor

Unfortunately, the fashion starts to go off the rails with Connor. His outfit is overloaded with unnecessary buttons and takes forever to put on. The incorporation of the Assassin insignia into his tomahawk comes off as tacky. And let’s not forget about the leggings, which are simply animal pelts tied around his legs. It seems like he ran out of time and threw his pants together at the last minute. Connor, finish your pants.

Aveline de Grandpré

Aveline, the series’ first female assassin, brings a fresh look to the table. Her sleek leather ensemble allows for easy movement, which is crucial for stealthy assassins. We’re not fans of the tricorne colonial hat replacing the iconic hood, but the matching orange scarf and sash are nice touches. The studded kneepads show that Aveline means business. She may not be the best-dressed assassin, but she certainly isn’t the worst either. Hats off to Aveline!

Edward James Kenway

Talk about overkill. Kenway, the pirate assassin, is drowning in weaponry. With four pistols and two swords strapped to his body, it’s a miracle he doesn’t accidentally shoot or impale himself. And let’s not forget about the skirt he’s wearing. Kenway, you’re taking the phrase “if looks could kill” a bit too literally.

Adéwalé

Adéwalé’s outfit is adorned with buttons, buckles, and laces that serve no real purpose. It’s hard to see how he can do anything other than waddle like a penguin in that getup. We can’t understand why he needs so many fasteners that aren’t even attached to anything. Adéwalé, you’re putting the double-ass in “assassin.”

Shay Patrick Cormac

Shay Cormac, the turncoat assassin, takes the pointless fasteners to a whole new level. His outfit is a mess of crisscrossed buttons and belts. It’s hard to imagine how he can untangle himself at the end of the day. Maybe lighting himself on fire would be an improvement. Templars are supposed to be the smart ones, but Shay’s fashion sense says otherwise. Better off burning.

Arno Victor Dorian

After a couple of overdesigned assassins, Arno looks surprisingly respectable. Yes, his knee-high crimson leggings may be more Flash Dance than Assassin’s Creed, and his pants resemble Capri pants, but the rest of his ensemble is a balance of functionality and style. Arno’s outfit doesn’t overdo it with unnecessary flair, and his crossbow favors function. The shirt-scarf-shirt-vest-jacket combination may be a bit much, but we’re grateful he’s not wearing a ball gown into battle. Arno is a shining example of “good enough” fashion.

Q: Which Assassin’s Creed game features these assassins?

A: The assassins mentioned in this article are from various Assassin’s Creed games, including Altaïr (Assassin’s Creed), Ezio (Assassin’s Creed II, Brotherhood, and Revelations), Connor (Assassin’s Creed III), Aveline (Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation), Edward Kenway (Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag), Adéwalé (Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag – Freedom Cry), Shay Cormac (Assassin’s Creed Rogue), and Arno (Assassin’s Creed Unity).

Q: Is fashion an important aspect of the Assassin’s Creed games?

A: While fashion may not be the central focus of the Assassin’s Creed games, the unique outfits worn by the assassins add to the overall visual appeal and character development within the series.

Assassin’s Creed is not just about stealthy assassinations and historical settings; it’s also about fashion. Each main assassin brings their own style to the table, and it’s fascinating to see how their wardrobes evolve throughout the series. From Altaïr’s understated elegance to Ezio’s diva-like flair, there’s a wide range of fashion choices to admire. However, some assassins, like Connor, could use a bit of improvement in their fashion sense. In the end, it’s subjective as to which assassin has the best fashion sense, so we’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments section.
