The power of the smile
Alessandro Squarzi: thousands of followers have elected him an icon of men’s fashion
First place among the 40 best-dressed men in the world. How does that feel?
It certainly is a great honor.
What is elegance?
Elegance is in the movements, in the way we relate to others.
A personal object that you would never do without?
Why this obsession with vintage?
It’s a passion that I’ve been cultivating since I was a teenager. I find everything that has a past and a story to tell to be fascinating.
What would you throw out and what would you keep of the fashion of these last 5 years?
Throw away the men’s stretch and fitted pants. I would keep the great return of military wear, but only if it’s original vintage.
Define your style.
Very simple: a mix between my classic roots and my passion for vintage, especially military and denim. I call it gypsyclassic.
My credit card.
T-shirt or shirt?
It depends on the occasion. I wear both.
Street style or pâp?
The yes’s and no’s in men’s clothing?
Yes to respecting the dress code and dressing appropriately for your physicality. No to short-sleeves and sandals.
