La Dolce Vita. It is Italian way of life. You only get a true feeling of what it means. From the first sip of your cafe in the AM to the last Aperol Spritz of the night, it draws you in. It’s not all fun and games though. With the streets crowded with tourists from all over the world, the daily grind is still alive and well. People are still waking up and going to work amidst the chaos of the visitors in the city. Take a minute and admire those people because they are the style influencers you need to pay attention to.
Speeding through the streets in a Glen Plaid Double Breasted suit with a pair of double monks on a vintage Vespa is not an uncommon sight but one you might not see anywhere else in the world. Italian’s are some of the most elegantly dressed people in the world and that is evident not just by the guys attending Pitti Uomo but by the air of nonchalance, the sprezzatura, found in the people of Italy. I was fascinated by the people who were out there just doing what they do every day.
