CIFONELLI HONG KONG TRUNK SHOW
Founded in Rome in 1880 by Giuseppe Cifonelli and moving to Paris in 1926, this legendary tailoring house is still entirely family run. The Cifonelli style has been described as a blend of British strictness, Italian lines and something distinctly French. Today helmed by Giuseppe’s great-grandsons, cousins Massimo and Lorenzo. Karl Lagerfeld once famously stated, “I could recognise a Cifonelli shoulder from a distance of a hundred meters,” and indeed, it is the distinctive shoulder line that is a Cifonelli jacket’s defining feature. Cifonelli created a soft, natural shoulder with very little padding, and shape the sleeve head using a form called ‘Le Cigarette’. Resulting in not only a distinctive raised line but greater freedom of movement — the perfect combination of form and function.
Fourth generation tailor Lorenzo Cifonelli will be here with us this Thursday and Friday at Attire House taking bespoke commission and fitting appointments.
