Cifonelli: Masters Of Paris

Cifonelli’s Spring/Summer Wares will inject Gaelic-Italian swagger into your summer get-ups.

To seasoned Rake readers, the name ‘Cifonelli’ has the same resonance as the names ‘Bowie’ or ‘Hendrix’ do to dedicated musos. If you’re late in the room, though, this Rome-born, Paris-based family tailoring firm utilises, with unsurpassed skill and craftsmanship, a delectable cocktail of ingredients from three of the world’s major tailoring powerhouses: customers can expect Italy’s suppleness and comfort; the authoritative shoulder constructions, should they wish, associated with Savile Row’s British military heritage; and small details beloved of French couture including buttonhole stitching and pocket detailing that have in-the-know clientele awe-struck when they collect their commissions.
