Gianni & the City

Style icon Gianni Agnelli, or “L’Avvocato” as he was nicknamed, was a man of impeccable elegance. His legendary silver grey hair gave him charisma and charm which indeed made him one of the most stylish Italian men who ever lived.

When in London, he loved shopping! Nothing suits a man better than a tie and he knew it. His favourite place was Turnbull & Asser in Jermyn Street, where he could find a wide range of silk and wool ties to add something to his exquisite and perfect wardrobe, partly created by the famous Huntsman of London in Savile Row (of course!!).

15 years after his death let’s celebrate this unsurpassed bon vivant, raising a glass of champagne at Claridge’s Bar, in the hotel where Agnelli always wanted to stay and which remains the gold standard for London luxury hotels since opening its doors in 1856 in Mayfair.
