Marcello Mastroianni is the epitome of Italian style. Thanks to his devotion to basic black suits, French-cuffed dress shirts, and uncomplicated black ties, Mastroianni holds the unique honor of proving that breaking boundaries can be done while adhering to simplicity and tradition.
Mastroianni knew that the key to style wasn’t wearing the most elite labels or most expensive fabrics. For him, it was all about the fit. He didn’t try to make waves with outrageous colors or excessive detailing, but instead focused on the cut of his garments. He proved that when the fit is right, everything else falls into place, and his lasting legacy is an important lesson: it doesn’t matter what you wear, only how you wear it.
That’s why Mastroianni’s incomparable style doesn’t stop at his wardrobe. He crafted a complete look to ensure that he always wore the clothes and that the clothes never wore him. His style was in his smile, his stare, the tip of his sunglasses, the way he crossed his legs, his poise and posture. No detail was left out, and now his commitment to creating a look that was truly all his own has made Mastroianni one of the most difficult style icons to replicate.
