Marcello Mastroianni: Italian style icon



True style icon, as well as a great protagonist of the Italian cinema

Marcello Mastroianni is one of the most famous actors of the big screen, Academy Award nominee for several times, and famous for playing in some of Federico Fellini’s films. Mastroianni was able to interpret both dramatic and comedy roles, but he is nowday admired not only for his acting skills, but also for the elegance and sophistication, which have confirmed him as a style icon of the Italian men’s fashion.

Symbol of the Italian style, not only for the look but also for the way of being of his many characters played in some masterpieces of the cinema. Mastroianni has been able to synthesize all what is essential for being a classy man: elegance, but also naturalness, romanticism, discretion and professionalism.


His look, constantly imitated over time, has never been studied or built and did not need excessive details, on the contrary, it has perfectly suited his characters and has maintained his charm without the influence of fashion.

Mastroianni, a charming man, brilliant and full of vitality, can be considered a style icon in the context of the Italian fashion, apart from brands and trends, defining a demure but impeccable style: a classic black dress or an evening tails dress, a white shirt with a cutaway collar, a black tie, a pair of sunglasses, a Borsalino hat. This was all that was necessary to elicit admiration, and everything that Fellini needed to make his image unforgettable on the Italian screens.


Take Mastroianni as exemple may seem simple, but it is not: it is not easy to find the perfect dress and above all it is not easy to wear it with his class and nonchalance. But, with little effort, without trying to emulate a similar style icon, you can do it by choosing simple and refined garments, trying your own “dolce vita”.
