Kempt Man of the Hour: Kilian Hennessy
*Photographed by our fearless lensman, Patrick McMullan.*
Kilian Hennessy embodies that old chestnut about life not being fair. The dashing Sorbonne grad is the grandson of the founder of the LVMH Group and the heir to a long line of “luxury pioneers.” You should have seen all the well-bred babes fawning over him at the launch of his new By Kilian fragrance collection, L’Oeuvre Noir, the other night at Bergdorf’s. And unlike us, he will never, *ever*, run out of cognac.
That a fellow like this should be extremely well-dressed to boot comes as no surprise we suppose, but we’ll just grit our teeth and carry on, because we’re all brothers under the chalkstripes. Anyway—for his fragrance frolic, Hennessy sported the jacket and vest from a killer three-piece, single-breasted, peak lapel suit with a ticket pocket by Tom Ford, worn with a brisk white shirt, Diesel jeans and a rubber and steel Cartier Pasha Seatimer watch. *C’est la vie*.
