Style Profile - Lapo Elkann
Lapo Elkann - Heir to Fiat - Nephew of Gianni Agnelli
Like Agnelli, Lapo Elkann is a style icon and famous for his Sprezzatura style. His style is a little more disheveled then I perfer, but it is still very well done. It is a very edgy and modern version of classic style and sprezzatura. Elkann also does well with the Gams, so it must be working for him. Agnelli took sprezzatura to one level, Elkann is taking it to a whole new level. It certainly is worth learning from, his tailored looks with over the top accessories are quite memorable. As much I don't think I can pull off some of Lapo Elkann's looks, I can admire that he pulls them off with ease. Elkann reminds us that style is often based in confidence.
Sprezzatura Italian for "Artful Dishevelment". How to look good without looking like you try too hard. Looking good gracefully is not easy, but we at MD feel we must progress toward the unattainable perfection of Artful Dishevelment. http://moderndignified.blogspot.com/2009/08/sprezzatura.html
