Stefano Ricci creates a lifestyle through its clothing and home furnishings for, as the New York Times put it, the 0.001%.
In a fast-paced world, the belief of sticking to true values such as honour, power and pride is what sets Stefano Ricci apart from the rest. With the launch of their new clothing line heavily inspired by 'speed', we visited the city of Florence to discover how these handmade Italian products are about promoting more than quality, but a philosophy too.

Owner of 24 Hundred, a Dino Specialist, we spent a day with him learning about what makes these cars so irresistable.
