Marco Zanini sits back in the Place Vendome atelier in Paris, making himself comfortable in his new position. Becoming creative director for the long- dormant fashion house, Schiaparelli, he says, is a mixed bag.
"I have this feeling of great joy, great pride and great responsibility, as well," he says. "This house has a legacy that is really unique and incredible."
Zanini took the position after several months of negotiations with Tod's owner Diego della Valle, who acquired the label in 2006. The 42-year-old Swedish-Italian designer had just completed the spring-summer runway for Rochas, and is taking on Schiaparelli's couture and prêt-à-couture (its version of ready-to-wear) immediately for Haute Couture Fashion Week in January.[...]
"Schiaparelli's approach to fashion really represents a unique way to combine fashion, art and culture," Zanini says. "She represented a very central cultural figure of the 20th century, not just in fashion but beyond." [...]
"She is one my favourite personalities in fashion history because of her personal life," Zanini says. "She was adventurous, brave and super-intelligent, and used her intelligence to succeed in life. What makes her so relevant and inspiring to people even today, is that she was so free-minded. She was able to do things her own way.
"I can identify with her irreverence and non-conformist thinking - that's for sure - and I admire the clever way in which she was irreverent but also able to execute the ultimate elegance, which, if you think about it, is a bit of a paradox. To provoke, but with supreme elegance."

Agnelli’s fashion sense stood out, even in a country like Italy, where dressing well and fashionably is generally perceived as very important. His style has inspired and influenced menswear throughout the years, in Italy and around the world.
In his retirement speech, Milanese fashion designer Nino Cerruti named Agnelli as one of his biggest inspirations, amongst James Bond and John F. Kennedy. Esquire Magazine named Agnelli as one of five best dressed men in the history of the World. Agnelli’s dress style was a combination of a foundation of classic suits, combined with eye-catching personal tricks.
He had a large number of bespoke Caraceni suits, which were of very high quality and classic design, and yet had the signature Italian bravura. It was the accessories and the way they were worn that made Agnelli stand out as a fashionisto. He is known for wearing his wristwatch over his cuff, wearing his tie askew or wearing (fashionable) high brown hiking boots under a bespoke suit. [...]
The Gianni Agnelli Fashion Rules: never wear short socks, no eyeglasses in public, longer hair than usual people, never wear toed shoes. An elegant person is never completely perfect and must simulate, a little bit, a distracted person. Just a detail, which maybe attract the attention, can make a big difference.
