COLORFUL IL VOLO
To say that the Il Volo men are colorful has meaning on different levels. They have colorful personalities just by virtue of being Italian, yes? Always beautiful and captivating, they instill in their fans a desire to follow their moves around the world, whether in concert or just enjoying casual time. They have made us care about them on a very personal level, because they are not only colorful in their endeavors, but always maintain their intrinsic solid base.
Piero has certainly been colorful this summer, sporting his YELLOW attire. He looks like a ray of sunshine in the yellow shirt, and YELLOW shorts have never looked so good before. It’s a dramatic color that really suits his outgoing personality–remind-ful of Lemoncello, the intense Italian aperitif.
While Gianluca usually favors the conservative look in dress, we can’t forget the shiny BLUE suit from the Jose Jose tribute. Only GG could have pulled off that look, but on him it was perfection. And not to forget the RED speedos –we could never forget them.
Yes, RED was a good color for the speedos and remember how dashing Piero looked in his RED sport coat on the Buon Natale DVD? We could stand seeing more of that. And it goes without saying that the RED glasses have always been his trademark.
When performing at special occasions the guys are usually dressed in formal BLACK suits. They fit the role of dignified, professional men to a T. With the white shirts and BLACK ties, they are the quintessential examples of professionalism.
And speaking of WHITE shirts, what is it about a WHITE shirt on a handsome man that makes women of all ages sigh with delight? WHITE shirts are worn everywhere and on all occasions. Fathers and Grandpas wear them (though perhaps somewhat begrudgingly) and they look very nice, but put one on a handsome young man, roll up the sleeves a bit and leave the top four or five buttons undone, and women over the age of 16 are likely to breathe more heavily at the sight. We have numerous examples of how our handsome young men use this tempting show of masculinity. And when they choose to drape a sweater over their shoulders, they are the epitome of casual sophistication. Long live the WHITE shirt.
BLUE seems to be the alternate color choice for Ignazio, albeit a subtle shade, when he prefers something other than the usual grayish color that the guys tend to wear when performing. It may be a suit, or something more casual like a T shirt. No matter, he looks great in anything.
Yes, our guys are colorful, and we like them that way. We can’t get enough of their colorful characteristics no matter what colors they are wearing.
