WSJ. THE POWER OF STYLE
the godfather of style
The Italian industrialist who ran Fiat during the jet-set age was one of the most stylish men of the 20th century. Many have copied his casually inventive look, but his elegance remains inimitable.
'A LOT OF ITALIANS— REALLY GOOD BUSINESS PEOPLE—
TRY TO BE LIKE HIM. HE'S AN ICON. BUT NOBODY GETS IT. NOBODY.'

'THE TIE ASKEW, THE UNBUTTONED SHIRT— NOTHING WAS AN ACCIDENT OR, TO PUT IT ANOTHER WAY, IT WAS MEANT TO BE AN ACCIDENT, WHICH MADE IT EVEN MORE STYLISH.' —Taki Theodoracopulos
