Mariano Di Vaio is a Los Angeles-based fashion blogger and actor, who has collaborated with Hugo Boss, Gucci, and Tommy Hilfiger. Known for his elevated take on classic menswear, Di Vaio isn’t afraid to experiment with bold prints. A highlight of this is a D&G metallic brocade suit with a traditional menswear cut, which he wore to accept ‘Man of the Year’ at GQ Middle East’s annual awards. A seasoned traveller, Di Vaio seems to have an outfit for any setting. You’re just as likely to see him sporting rugged outerwear as you are in classic beachwear – with a toned physique that will leave many asking after his workout regimen.

At the age of 22, Luka Sabatt has already built up an impressive resume. As well as being a model and influencer for Evian and Calvin Klein, Sabatt is a self-styled ‘creative entrepreneur’ having worked as a producer, designer, and stylist.

Like with most influencers, Sabatt brings an effortless quality to his style.

A fashion blogger who recently ventured into the design, Adam Gallagher’s style typifies the modern-day renaissance man: impeccably styled and adventurous with an outfit for every occasion. A recent interview notes James Dean, Marlon Brando, and Andy Warhol as style icons. His outfits all appear effortless, even his use of patterns is sharp with an understated chic.
Born in California and currently residing in New York, Gallagher brings an easy-going nature to classic, elegant tailoring. Therefore, he never appears to be ‘too’ dressed up. You can also tell that Gallagher knows the importance of styling and composition – even shots were taken in a ‘candid’ style look like an editorial spread.
