Akoni Leo Black
The Italians have a word for it: sprezzatura. Better understood on the silver screen than in a dictionary, it’s equal parts confidence, refinement and that studied nonchalance exhibited by their style greats—people like legendary actor Mar- cello Mastroianni, whose incomparable ability to pair sharp black suits with imposing sunglasses is on display in countless cinematic masterpieces. It’s impossible to choose one best moment from amongst so many greats, but Mastroianni peering over a pair of Leo-esque sunglasses in Fellini’s 1963 masterpiece 8 1⁄2 must surely place near the top of any list. In fact, more than fifty years later this same unforgettable moment was selected as the official image of the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. Some things just never go out of style.
