Her mother is the queen of pop and her father is a renowned filmmaker.

And, 19-year-old Rocco Ritchie recalled Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist in a vintage outfit as he took a bike ride through central London on Saturday.

Madonna and Guy Ritchie’s son looked elegant in a 1940s style outfit, wearing a waistcoat, tie and flat cap, while wearing untreated strawberry blond facial hair.

Rocco was inspired by the fashion era of the 1940s, going out in cream and brown brogues, while rolling up his taupe pants legs to display long gray socks.

He opted for a white waistcoat and a pleated leather belt, with a blue tie matching his jacket.

The student strikingly resembled Oliver Twist, the main character in the iconic novel of the same name of 1839, written by Charles Dickens.

He has adopted his vintage style in recent years, following in the footsteps of his avant-garde parents.

The American teenager enrolled in fine arts at Central Saint Martins in London last September.

Speaking to The Sun last January, an insider said, “Rocco takes his art very seriously. He has had a few capricious years, but now he devotes himself to this new course and feels that he really fits in with his classmates.

“Both of his parents are delighted that he is doing something creative with his time and following his passion.”

The insider went on: “He demonstrated his dedication by attending all of his courses and embarking on studies. Plus, no one treats him like the son of a superstar – he feels like a normal student.

“He is inspired by the graffiti artist Banksy and sees himself as a key player in the London art scene in a few years.”

Alumni of the school include Paul McCartney’s daughter Stella, as well as fashion icons Alexander McQueen and John Galliano.

Madonna and her ex-husband Guy welcomed Rocco in 2000, the couple later adopting their Malawian son David Banda, 14, in 2006. They separated two years later.

Guy is now married to model Jacqui Ainsley, 38. The happy couple, who tied the knot in July 2015, are the father of sons Rafael and Levi, and of their daughter Rivka.

Rocco has lived with Guy in London since the director won a nine-month custody battle against Madonna in 2016.
