When it comes to authentic and bespoke tailoring in Paris, the family-owned Cifonelli fashion house is one of the first labels that comes to mind.
Noted for adding a touch of glamour and character to its bespoke designs, with the use of luxurious materials such as cashmere and Scabal fabrics, the label has dressed influential stars including the late entertainer Josephine Baker.
Baker’s outfit of a bespoke, sharp, high-waisted trouser suit featured Cifonelli’s signature shoulder cut. The forward-cut design allows free movement when worn, and caught the eye of couture designer Karl Lagerfeld.
Cifonelli is gaining more international customers for its bespoke tailoring, from Russia, Brazil and Japan, but the brand still prides itself on a personal, hands-on approach.
Master tailor Lorenzo Cifonelli visits clients across the world for an in-depth consultation, ensuring they receive the perfect design, style and fit.
French-Italian craftsmanship lies at the heart of every Cifonelli bespoke suit, ensuring each piece is made to perfection.
