Alessandro Squarzi. Milan's Classic Globetrotter
A true player in the Italian Fashion Industry, Alessandro Squarzi is renowned for his remarkable style as much as his entrepreneurship. When he's not overseeing his fashion consultancy and showroom in Milan, Alessandro is being snapped by street style photographers at Menswear Fashion Week in Milan and Paris. Most recently he has graced the cover of Korean Fashion Magazine, Street Foot, further making his mark among the style savvy in Seoul. Having worked his way to the top as a young man, Alessandro's success in the Italian Fashion Industry and his passion for all things menswear is inspiring. Taking a look at his style philosophy and some of his key looks, it is easy to see why he gains such sartorial interest.
“The way I dress comes naturally to me. I don’t think you need to overdo it”
Founder and Director of Alessandro Squarzi consultancy in Bologna, the style ingénue has been described as 'The MASTER of Italian sprezz'. Gaining a retail position from an early age, he has worked his way to the top becoming one of the most respected businessmen in the Italian Fashion Industry. Not one to slave to trends, Alessandro epitomises Italian fashion at its best. Simplicity, quality and no fuss.
“I’ve never felt the need to follow trends. I’ve always had my own thoughts on what fashion is and how it looks best on me”.
Squarzi describes his style as unique, casual and deconstructed. His self proclaimed style, ‘gipsy classic’, combines quality tailoring with a vagabond spirit, opting for a heavy woollen coat paired with battered blue Vans or layered knitwear with classic leather monk shoes. Getting his first Harley Davidson at 24 and most recently, receiving his fifth tattoo just in time for his 50th birthday, Alessandro is not one to conform. This, combined with that Italian fashion sense that can’t be found anywhere else in the world, Squarzi is a style inspiration to us all.
Key Alessandro Squarzi Pieces
It’s safe to say white trousers are Alessandro’s signature look. Granted, not every man can pull off this daring attire. However with his natural ability for style, Squarzi looks effortless.
Growing up, Squarzi was surrounded by impeccably dressed men and having been immersed in the fashion industry from an early age he has an appreciation for fine tailoring and apparel of the highest quality.

Making a fashion comeback on the street style scene, Squarzi has been photographed wearing these Adidas classics with his fail-proof white trousers, perfect for a transitional Spring/Summer 2015 look.
Treading the line between subtle elegance and creativity, it’s no wonder that Italian men are recognised as some of the best dressed men on the planet with Alessandro Squarzi among the best of them. Keep an eye out for this ‘gipsy classic’ globetrotter at future fashion weeks and to all you style hunters out there, take note!
