Style Icon - Giovanni Agnelli
G iovanni "Gianni" Agnelli, was an Italian industrialist and owner of the FIAT Group. In Italy’s ever changing political scene, it was often said that Agnelli was the true ruler of Italy. At the height of his power he controlled more than a quarter of the companies on Milan’s stock exchange, personally. Besides being a fantastic business man, l’Avvocato, as he is often called in his native Italy, is by many said to be one of the best dressed men ever in perfect bespoke suits from Milanese tailors Caraceni, Brooks Brothers button down shirts and his watch worn on the shirt cuff, Agnelli truly embodied the essence of sprezzature like none other.
