    This looks good. I like his use of fluorescent pink. Also, he has what looks to be a perfect color match between jacket and shirt. He looks doesn’t look disheveled in this picture.

    I don't like the shirt or boots; the blazer, raspberry tie and jeans are lovely. The wash on the jeans, especially.

    I'd probably be afraid to take a picture of this guy if he was looking at me and my camera like that, though.

    The jacket/shirt/tie combo is too matchy-matchy. He could have been braver with the colour scheme.

    Someone above said he was trying too hard. I don't think so. While I think he looks like a circus barker 75% of the time (the other 25% he NAILS it), he deserves credit for his carefree attitude IMO. I bet he wakes up, slaps something on that he thinks is "fun" and then goes on his way. Not trying at all really – it just happens to work for him. Luca Rubinacci strikes me in the same way, although I like his style much better…

    Pink is a most manly colour. I would happily wear this outfit. Undoing the buttons on his sleeves is overkill. As Mr. Hackett has pointed out in the past, it is enough to know that the cuffs are not just for show, and too much to show it off.

    It's hard for me to imagine where one would find men's clothes in these colors, esp. the jacket.
    Note to poster above: lots of men look good in pink. There are lots of different shades and there is one for any guy's coloring. The problem is with some men's heads, i.e, it's too feminine. Right on, Pink Men! You have confidence and aren't prejudiced.

    He hits the pinks nicely here, I don't think he does nearly as well with the blues though. the pocket square is too light for the jeans and the blue in the jacket has too much green in it to really match either of the other blues. Well done on the pinks though

  141. Ben

    January 19, 2010 at 11:55 pm

    A very bold choice that ultimately yields success. Obviously the pink shirt is going to be the center of attention, but it doesn't look out of place at all with the rest of the outfit. I must admit, I never thought I'd see a pink/brown/teal plaid jacket that was somehow *not* the flashiest part of the ensemble.

    The unbuttoned cuffs are a great touch.

    It's great to see glamorous inherited wealth plus idiosyncratic risk-taking in personal style, and this guy is normally wonderful to watch: but this outfit, it's just saying clown. Maybe there's a subtle italian commedia del arte reference we're not getting…

    Just a little political fashion note. As you will see, Lapo seems not to be very popular with Italians. This is because he is a nephew of Gianni Agnelli, the former owner of FIAT car factory. It looks like that when hard times come for FIAT, the taxpayer has to help the firm that is too big to fail.; when hard times come for Italy, you can count that FIAT will not help and the Agnelli family will be counting their money while laying off workers. Frankly, a pink shirt is not enough to overcome this that may be a prejudice, but has its reasons.

    shirt collar is too small, it´s tips cannot be covered by the jacket´s lapels and are lifted up from the shirt front by the tie knot. very italian gentleman – NOT !
    open buttons on both cuffs is just pompous and vulgar, especially if one can afford bespoke by the truckload. subtleness obviously can not be inherited.
    the pocket square matching the cuffs on the jeans, intentionally or unintentionally, is GENIUS.

    I'm not really a big fan of Lapo (the person) or his style. The Agnelli family have always been a stylish bunch: Gianni "l'Avvocato" (Lapo's grandfather) was renowned for his sartorial quirks, such as the tie over the sweater or watch over the shirt cuff. Lapo sometimes seems a tad confused, but you can't accuse him of being afraid to take risks. He and his older brother John seem to represent both sides of the Agnelli aesthetic.

    it took me a minute to figure out what makes this and other of his looks work so well (most of the time that is). there is this tension in his outfits between restraint and exuberance that especially in the lapo context is so exciting to watch. his devilish grim, five oclock shadow, and roguish hair provide necessary background to understand a pink shirt, similarly shaded tie, and that killer jacket. the unrestrained use of pink launches the look and our anxiety to atmospheric heights wondering if it can be coaxed earthward without falter. the pants and boots, demure in comparison, are a concession to trends that insist the combination is as formal as any grey flannel and loafer, that lure you into believing the top half of the outfit. by couching the hyperbolic top in the familiar almost pedestrian combination on the bottom you are simultaneously worried and reassured that this is still lapo elkan and he doesn't disappoint.

    p.s. another example of lapo that will worry you and then make it all better can be found in an april 2008 photo. never has just rolled out of bed looked so refined, check it out.

    I very often LOVE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY!, but rarely really GET the fascination for the bizarre the rest of your audience apparently does. Lapo must have been in a blindfold to have put that wretched outfit 'together'! -If he was an ordinary man from Padua, not one of these commenting fashionistas would find EVERYTHING about him so SUBLIME!
    The man is rich enough to find his own fashion voice w/out looking like a TOTAL FOOL…which is what his appearance screams to anyone w/ an objective view . Jack

    Wow. I've only seen him in blue before. Blue and white. The pink is shocking. And fantastic. I can't stop looking at the tie and imagining what it feels like.

    The studded boots could be awful, but somehow work. Impressive.

    I love it…he looks like he was transported through a time machine, but it made all the colours brighter or darker.

    Great photo! The boots look incongruous but they actually make the look because they manage to ensure he doesn't look prissy. Genius!

    I feel like if I were male, this is what I would wear.

    It looks incredible on him… and standing up the proportions are probably just perfect.

    Ahhhh what fun.

    Not the kind of look I usually love, but… I love it. (Rattier jeans & classic well-worn Red Wing pole-climber boots would make it even better.) I've got to show this photo to the DH–he'd look great in something inspired by it!

    Perfection from the tip of his locks, to the sole of his boot.

    I like the contrast of duke of windsor jacket with jeans, and hot Indiam pink with broken-in boots. The interplay is what keeps it from being too careful.

    I am just not a fan. I think he looks so much better in more traditional clothing. With this look, he seems like he's trying way too hard, and looks kinda like a skeez.

    But hey! Whatevs.

    You have to be very self assured to pull this look off.
    Who else but Lapo? Can't think of too many others off hand. The boots and rockabilly rolled jeans seal the deal. He is so right on the mark here.

    Plugged back in to your site. Saw this image had an ungodly amount of comments. That says something. In it's own subtle way, he is very evocatively dressed. He resonates with people. Very cool.

    He does look amazing. Thank goodness for the boots. Without them the outfit would be awful, but with them, the outfit is manly and sexy. He does look like a young Mickey Rorke.

    Well… its safe to say that Lapo is at the very least controversial judging by all of the comments. I personally think that he has a great whimsical style and plays very well with color.
