WHAT IS JAMES WEARING? Rotating Header Image

Inspiration and Legacy

I was tickled to get a call from a casting director friend of mine recently – She was looking to do a feature on American men dressed in a high Italian style similar to Lapo Elkann’s look. Elkann, the grandson of Gianni Agnelli and the Fiat heir, continues his iconic grandfather’s legacy as a fashionista, combining, say, an impeccably tailored suit with innovative elements worn in unusual ways – the ultimate effect makes the highly considered seem casually effortless. Needless to say, I have been hugely inspired, both in how I dress and in the interiors I create, by the Agnelli legacy as well!

I am just off of Madison Ave. posing for my scouting shot, dressed for a day of shopping. I am wearing a Gucci Tyroleon style wool tweed jacket with leather trim, Tom Ford shirt in cotton black and white stripes, Seamen Schepps black pearl cufflinks, white and black silk scarf by Turnbull and Asser, green leather gloves by Sermoneta, black wool flannel pants by Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent aubergine suede “Eton” boots, and glasses by Dior. When I wear black, grey, and white I like to use a shot of color, – here adding some interest with the green gloves and aubergine boots.
