Cifonelli, the perennial Rake favorite, is one of the world’s most storied and fabled tailors. Based in Paris and presided over by cousins Lorenzo and Massimo Cifonelli, it is known for its sleek modern cut, complemented by a wonderfully soft construction and the famous Cifonelli shoulder that allows for unrivaled mobility. To have a suit made by them is to get the upper echelon of bespoke experiences, and now is your chance to find out why. From start to finish, you will be in charge of the finished product, with Massimo and Lorenzo there with you to guide you along the way, from the fabrics, of which there are hundreds to choose from, to the cut and details of the suit.
The winner of this lot will be featured with his suit in a story for The Rake (if they wish). Which means that the process and fittings will be captured by a photographer and a member of The Rake team will be in constant contact with the winning bidder and the team at Cifonelli, to write the feature, no details spared.
Lorenzo and Massimo commented: “Cifonelli is proud to support and join The Rake and Revolution in paying homage to all victims of this pandemic by offering one of our signature handmade bespoke suits, crafted with love and compassion, for their fundraising appeal. Nothing is more valuable right now than the tireless commitment of health workers all over the world. As they carry on the good fight to keep us, and our families, safe, we want to say a big thank you!”
