Lapo’s Wardrobeby Eyal de Leeuw | 22.03.13
International style icon Lapo Elkann is always busy with new sartorial projects. 3 years after orchestrating the collaboration between Fiat and Gucci (Elkann is grandson of the legendary Italian business tycoon Gianni Agnelli – owner of Fiat) he is back to the Milanese fashion house by the request of Frida Giannini.
“Lapo’s Wardrobe” is the name of the new capsule collection, part of the house’s Made to Measure program. The collection consists of 23 men’s styles, plus made to order shoes and accessories and it will be unveiled during the Milan men’s shows this coming June. Only one sketch has been released so far, confirming Elkann’s signature piece, the double breasted suit, is in the story.
