You might have heard about Lapo Elkann - the epitome of sprezzatura. If not, thank us later. Mr. Elkann is the lucky heir to the Agnelli Fortune who has helped his family's company Fiat rise to fame once again and even founded his own brand Italia Independent. He follows in the footsteps of his grandfather Gianni Agnelli, the originial womanizer who is recognized as one of the best dressed men of all time.
Since speed is Elkann's business, its logical that he falls for everything fast on the streets, water or sky. And being the most “Italian” Italian he loves to wear products which are prodcued in his home country. Almost, as he was actually born in New York. We’ll overlook this trifle and celebrate the excellent fashion taste of the iconic Mr. Elkann as we follow his every move on Instagram. You might want to do so as well @lapoindependent. More than half a million followers on Instagram can’t be wrong about this man. He carries Italian style off like no one else.
It is always summer somewhere for a true jetsetter such as Mr. Elkann. A crisp white jacket might be the best choice for your big night out.
