THE ELEGANT MAN OF TODAY

A 70’s inspired Ferragamo total look for the second day of Milan Fashion Week.
Of course I still can’t part with all my blazers and suits but I feel the need to reflect more on my style lately.
I saw too many ties, vests, DB jackets at Pitti to feel the need to tone down.

I’m pretty sure some of you will probably find this look too much. Well, my exaggeration aims to start a conversation with you on what means being elegant today.

Am I elegant only when I wear a jacket and a tie?
Does “elegant” still mean “formal“?

Starting from my formal background in style, I want to reflect on this questions and find new ways to define the elegant man of today.

  1. caro Filippo l’eleganza non si determina da giacca , cravatta e money…
    da un outfit da vetrina!!!
    è un’attitude che uno ha e che ti distingue a prescindere….
    promuovo il tuo look !!!direi original!!

  2. I personally enjoy the posts where you dress more casually and experiment with clothing items that are a little more relaxed. As relaxed as the separates in this outfit are, the way you put them together makes a highly sophisticated look. If I was a photographer at fashion week, I would skip the men in the suits and go straight to you. I especially love the high waisted shorts and the way you hold them up with the belt. This is a classic ensemble. Thank you!

  3. Se vuoi avviare un confronto devi affrontare le critiche e trascurare gli eccessivi consensi.
    I discorsi filosofici e antropologici sul concetto di eleganza, moda, look li lascio a voi.
    Credo non sia sufficiente ritagliarsi addosso un indumento e sentirsi a proprio agio per definirsi eleganti. Credo inoltre che alcuni aspetti dell’eleganza “tradizionale” siano indiscutibili.
    Abito sartoriale, blazer blu, pochettes, cravatta, un bel paio di scarpe artigianali sono elementi imprescindibili dell’eleganza odierna.

  4. This is a very elegant outfit for sure!

    For some reason I think this outfit dates back a bit, back around the 80-90. It is a great look, and it is something that I am sure will make a come back soon! Great look. Style doesn’t have to only contain suits and ties, this is marvellous!
