This Spring Cifonelli returns to its Mediterranean DNA with an urban collection echoing the palette of the Mare Nostrum and elegantly tailored silhouettes.
With a range of colors from verdant greens to celestine blues and palest tans, this elegant collection finds inspiration from the sky and sea, stone and sand of the sun drenched Cote d'Azur. Creative director John Vizzone brings the Cifonelli gentleman toa new level of contemporary sophistication with a memory of his past. In addition to the shapely signature silhouette, the famed chiseled shoulder and trim trouser, a distinctively tailored group reflects the softer Neapolitan brio that pairs a natural shoulder with an easier, fuller single pleated trouser.
And in keeping with the theme of sea and sand, masculine sportswear resonates with a distinct nautical motif and recollections of deep blue seas and whitewashed walls, while elegant evenings of dining and dreaming in the moonlight are ushered in with equally poised formal wear.
For the last 134 years, Cifonelli has been at the vanguard of the luxury tailoring establishing itself as “The most prestigious tailor in Paris“ and it represents the pinnacle in tailoring combining its impeccable technique, the high quality fabrics and the modern touch with its homogeneity between French tradition, Italian lightness and English structuralism. All these pieces put together are the reason why each garment is perceived as a true work of art.
Cifonelli offers today the best expression of modern bespoke tailoring and the vision of modern fine clothing through its Ready-to- Wear collection with a hand-made craftsmanship technique which is being recognized and praised.
The Cifonelli famous shoulder is cut towards the front and offers an unrivaled freedom of movement or the high armholes, which refine the figure. A large number of creations demonstrate this perfect command of forms and materials. Milan-style buttonholes, step collars, special lapels and other stylistic devices perfectly symbolize the spirit of Cifonelli, a true men’s haute couture company.
