Wanny Di Filippo in Florence

This weekend I met my style icon Wanny Di Filippo in Florence. A few months ago I sent students, from a class I was teaching Rome, out on the streets to find Advanced Style. I was shocked when they came back and showed me photographs of Wanny, a man whose style and spirit I had been admiring for years. It was a great pleasure to finally meet this incredible man in person. If you get the chance stop by the Il Bisonte store on your next trip to Florence. To learn more about Wanny watch the great video by NOWNESS below.

  • If you think fashion and style is only for the youth, you are highly mistaken. Take a look at this lively and youthful personality Wanny Di Fillipo. He is a style icon for millions across the globe. For him, age is no bar when it comes to dressing up in bright hues and attractive shades. Right from clothing to accessories, everything seems to add on to the colorful personality of this individual. ‘Live life king size’- that seems to be his motto in life.
