Heir and Style Icon: Lapo Elkann

In the fashion world, the Italians remained a bit on the decadence of recent times. At a time when anglophile as widespread as Sing-along at Skansen, man’s ideal is set by Hedi Slimanes pen and byxlängden for odd New York designers, feels Italians overtaken. However, there are always exceptions. Italian units Lapo Elkann.

Many would probably argue that it is in the blood. Elkanns grandfather, Gianni Agnelli, is one of Italy’s most famous faces. Agnelli was Fiat’s boss and an internationally famous face, a close friend of Henry Kissinger, Rita Hayworth and Jackie Onassis. A true Playboy who had business with Swedish film star Anita Ekberg. Moreover, he was a major style icon. With the odd peculiarity to have the watch outside skjortmanschetten and with world-tailored suits, mainly from Italian tailor Caraceni, but also English Huntsman, Agnelli became the epitome of the well-dressed Italian. Casual elegance, as fitting the office for a Campari on lyxyachten.

The grandson Lapo Elkann has long been identified as Agnelli natural followers, both within the Fiat Group and style icon. One day in October 2005, however, everything is changing. Elkann ended up in a coma after having overdosed on cocaine in an apartment in Turin along with three transsexual prostitutes. This was obviously a big scandal that was about to crush the Agnelli family’s reputation.

Now, however Elkann back, and according to some stronger than ever. In the style context Elkann certainly very interesting. By combining classic and modern fashion has given Elkann Italian style a new and fresher face. As well as he carries grandfather Agnelli old costumes he wears sunglasses in carbon fiber from its own brand Italia Independent, which he told the Style’s article series “10 Essentials”. (Note under the title: “because dressing well is the best revenge”). Otherwise, he puts on clothes from his Italian tailor Alessandro Martorana and clothing from Etro and Paul Smith.

Elkann is undeniably very proud of his Italian background, which can be seen in his embroidered into the Italian flag in skjortmanschetten. And in a country like Italy, where people cheered in the street when it was announced that Fiat is separated from GM and becomes independent, needed this. Therefore, it may seem extraordinary strange when Elkann, in an interview with Style.com, pointing out the Duke of Beaufort as the main style icon beside his grandfather.
