Mr. Porter has tapped Frank Buglioni, a rising star in the boxing world, for a fashion photo shoot. The men’s online retailer featured 23-year old Buglioni as “One to Watch” in the latest issue of “The Journal.” The unbeaten, British Super-Middleweight has already made his mark both in the ring and on the style front, earning him a comparison to another athlete who has succeeded in both arenas. According to the piece: The secret to his success? Ask his manager, Mr William Storey, who in typically emphatic style refers to him as “the David Beckham of boxing.” Within the interview, Buglioni discusses his Italian heritage, preparation for fights, tips to get fit and why walking the runway can be scarier than receiving a knockout punch. Below are a few excerpts as Buglioni talks fashion. For the full piece, read on here. When it comes to being out of the ring, how would you describe your style? I’m quite understated. I stick to neutral colours, keep it simple. I’ve got a few Paul Smith suits that seem to fit me well, they’re nicely tapered. And I’m a fan of Gucci or Dolce & Gabbana accessories. You walked in London Collections: Men recently for Rake. How was that? That was a great experience. Something different, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Funnily enough, though, it was quite nerve-wracking. So walking the catwalk was scarier than walking into a boxing ring? Yeah! Fear of the unknown, I guess. For the corresponding fashion shoot, Buglioni modeled apparel and accessories from luxury designers like Neil Barrett, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana and Paul Smith.
