With his chiseled good looks and infectious personality, it is difficult to look away from this dapper man of the hour. Candid’s Jeff Conway sat down with Carlo Sestini to discuss his humble beginnings, his journey toward success and his deliciously surprising cravings.
Carlo, you were born in Florence within a very traditional family, but now you are living a fast-paced lifestyle across Europe. Do you feel you’ve kept some of your Italian roots, or has the culture around your professional life become your focus?
Initially moving to Switzerland for school and to be a ski racer for your home country must have been quite the transition at a young age. What type of schedule and regimen did you keep during that time in your life?
You are now based in London, with a heavy hand in luxury and fashion. What exactly are you working on these days?
You have worked with some of the most high-end fashion brands on the market today, including Versace, Hugo Boss and Tom Ford. What have you learned from working alongside these industry leaders?
Which men’s styles are trending right now, in your opinion?
Your social media posts are very visually appealing. You feature your love for sun, travel and staying in shape rather well. How important has social media played a role in enhancing your brand and notoriety?
For others out there trying to build their image and business through social media, what advice would you give them?

You must hear often that you have very distinct eyebrows. I’m curious, as a fellow gentleman, how do you approach your own grooming habits (even beyond the eyebrows)?
What would you say is your biggest short-term goal in life right now, Carlo?
Before we leave you, tell us something about you that would surprise people. Do you have a ‘guilty pleasure’ snack, activity or TV show that you simply cannot live without? We want to hear about your playful side.
