What do you wear when you’re pondering the end of the world?
The Italians have a lovely word: sprezzatura. It’s the art of studied carelessness, of nonchalance. It is, to be blunt, looking good without really trying. The French have a similar term for it, je ne sais quoi, literally, “I don’t know what.”
The words may change, the language may differ, but the sentiment is the same: less formal, more personal, a pared-back approach, an effortless luxe. Perhaps best applied when lounging about with a nice drink, and pondering the secrets of the universe. Or the end of the world. Either way, you’re dressed for it.
When contemplating the vastness of the galaxy, it’s best to get comfortable.
