FLYING HIGH: NetJets pilots soon will be touching down in stylish shades. The preferred airline for the superwealthy has selected Modo as its official eyewear provider. Modo's classic Umberto frame made exclusively for NetJets features a logo on the temple that reads "Modo for NetJets," and comes in a greenish hue known as "gun." Modo chief executive officer Alessandro Lanaro said, "Modo for NetJets sunglasses are manufactured using the lightest titanium materials combined with a highly engineered mineral glass lens. Our partnership is about technology and luxury in line with the NetJets experience." Non-NetJets pilots also can purchase the Modo Umberto in gold, khaki and gun for $285 at stores such as Ilori and MyOptics in New York.
ON AIR: Entrepreneur. Fashion darling. Now add radio host to Lapo Elkann's résumé. The Fiat heir is to launch his own talk program on Sirius Radio next month. WWD has learned that the Italia Independent capo will host a weekly, hourlong program on the satellite network. The show's lineup is not yet known but a spokeswoman said Elkann will have guests. With his colorful past and bright future, the young, wild-haired Italian will surely have enough fodder to give some good talk. Meanwhile, it looks like Elkann is also considering a dip into the sports arena. The buzz in Milan is that he's in talks to buy a stake in the city's professional volleyball team.
