Style Icon: Gianni Agnelli

Friday, October 9th, 2009

Gianni Agnelli was a successful Italian businessman who became president of Fiat in 1966 and was involved in some way with its operations until his death in 2003gianni agnelli cars

Agnelli was never associated with loud colors or patterns but rather with a simple elegance.   He took advantage of the perfection of an immaculately cut suit and his own points of style to create a look that was his own.  Agnelli’s most recognizable style trademarks included his watch, which he wore outside his sleeve, and his tie, which he wore slightly askew.  These subtle points elevated Agnelli to the status of style icon in a country and culture known for its style.gianni agnelligianni agnelli in chair

This is the challenge of all who strive to achieve the pinnacle of style (no feat to be taken lightly).  While many are content just to achieve a well put together wardrobe, others like Gianni take certain aspects of style and make them all their own.
