Pitti People x Saks: Cesare Cunaccia

The Vogue Italia Editor-at-Large Discusses His Fashion Obsessions and His Rough Style Beginnings.

It’s good to be Cesare Cunaccia. Dashing, charismatic, worldly, loved by everyone and works as a journalist at a tiny pub you may have heard about – Vogue Italia – as Editor-at-Large. Here, the celebrated aesthete talks about his many fashion obsessions, the style peccadillos he can’t abide by and how he found his way to elegance.

Cesare-Cunaccia-Pitti-People-Saks-Pitti-Uomo-SaksPOV

On Italians’ Approach to Male Elegance …

“In one word: “Estro”. It’s more nonchalant, sensual and light. A perfect crossing between drama and sophisticated comedy.” Read More..

Cesare-Cunaccia-Pitti-People-Saks-Pitti-Uomo-street-style-sprezzatura-Enrico-Labriola-SaksPOV

On his fashion obsessions …

Cufflinks. My collection is crazy enormous – more than 2,000 pairs, from gold and precious stone, even plastic garbage from the 1970s and 80s. I also have a thing for eccentric socks, vintage watches and, last but not least, my beloved black sunglasses.”

On his biggest style pet peeve …

“Conformism. That is the only and really, the biggest, mistake.”

Cesare-Cunaccia-Pitti-People-Saks-Pitti-Uomo-street-style-sprezzatura-SaksPOV

On just being born with it …

“Sprezzatura, as thousands of Renaissance and baroque artists and poets could tell you, is a natural, even genetic attitude. Impossible to learn.”

On his father’s mode of dressing …

“My father’s style was very far from my fashion point of view. My father, for example, had a very sporty and practical way of dressing. I was passionate of Nordic ski-ware and sailing tropes and was too intellectual and nomadic to be obsessed by elegance.”

alessandro-squarzi-interview-pitti-people-saks-street-style-sprezzatura-enrico-labriola-florence-sakspov

On ‘Sprezzatura’ and whether it can be learned …

No. I think that to dress in a “Sprezzatura” way is something you have to have in your own DNA, in your own style. If you “learn” it, then it’s not genuine. And everyone can see it.

alessandro-squarzi-interview-pitti-people-saks-street-style-sprezzatura-enrico-labriola-sakspov-2

On fashion statement secret weapons …

I don’t think there’s a specific item that can elevate a man’s look. It’s important to respect the right proportions and to wear what looks good on you. So first, you have to know “what” really looks good on you.

alessandro-squarzi-interview-pitti-people-saks-calcio-storico-fiorentino-sakspov

On the one special Florentine attraction one should take advantage of …

Every corner of this city is magical, but if I had to recommend something really unique it would be a game of Calcio Storico Fiorentino.

On his favorite occupation …

Being a dad!
