My Style Icon: Lapo Elkann
Internationally acclaimed as one of the best dressed men; recognized by Vanity Fair magazine in their Best Dressed Hall of Fame 2009, and nicknamed 'Lapo of Luxury,' Lapo Eduard Elkann surely earns a slot as one of my Style Icons.
Lapo Eduard Elkan is a New York born Italian industrialist, and an heir to Agnelli automobile fortune. The Agnelli empire encompass Alfa Romeo, Abarth, Lancia, Maserati, and the Chrysler corp including Jeep, Dodge, Ram, and Mopar. Lapo is now the current manager of brand promotions for Fiat Automobiles. Yet, it's Lapo's amazing style that makes him a personal Icon.
Style wise, Lapo's signature double breasted suits and blazers with the over-sized lapel and impeccable tailoring makes him undeniably debonnaire. I certainly admire a guy who is well put together but seemingly effortless in style, and Lapo certainly exemplifies that idea of stylish but effortless.
