Italians know their stuff when it comes to suits, and Canali is the brand for fine italian tailoring and luxury, on Tuesday the 27th of May, the brand opened their first store in the heart of the capital of “la Terra del Sole” and I was lucky to be invited to their exclusive cocktail party,
The store, which is laid out over 3 floors and covers a surface area of 250 square meters, is located in the exclusive Via del Babuino, which is only a few minutes walk from the Spanish steps, and is known as the bay of shopping in Rome;
On the third floor, if you are looking for an exclusive luxurious experience, a tailor is available for those who wish to create their own suit; from the very beginning you will be involved in the making of your own personal outfit; whether you want a double breasted jacket, or prefer it to be made of 100% linen, you can get what you want and how you want it.
The third floor also has direct access onto Canali’s private terrace – which unfortunately was closed off during the store opening – that looks out over the scenic vision that is central Rome; a bar will be available for the customers who feel like they need to chill out while deciding on their suit.
An exclusive dinner party was held afterwards, guest included actor and guest editor of Elle.IT, Paolo Stella, art expert Damiana Leoni, also author and film director Ivan Cotroneo.
Here below you can enjoy the photos I’ve taken of the store and am very thankful for being able to attend such an incredible event.
