Kiton Boutique, NYC….Nicola Zilli


Luciano Barbera defines “sprezzatura” as detachment, quiet confidence, or low-key style.

Nicola has this in spades.

Let’s not confuse sprezzatura, though, with refinement or perfection; Nicola is a little shaggy, a little raw, and if you saw his shoes, certainly a little quirky. Think Agnelli without the money.

If I was still single I would sign up to be his wingman. What is the Italian word for “wingman”?
