ITALIAN MEN FASHION BRANDS
The Italian Men’s fashion industry has often had as its main objective the creation ofelegant and formal clothing, also because of the established tradition of Italian tailoring. The major Italian fashion brands have achieved incredible success based on these masterpieces, basing their offer exclusively on top-of-the-range men’s clothing. Other minor brands have also played an important role in this sector, but having focused on the jeans and casual wear, they have achieved aminor reputation in the production sector of man’s gown.
However, the so-called “gown crisis”, that is, the tendency to dress less and less formally, has hit the industry hard. The first response was to diversify the offer by reducing the emphasis placed upon the formal dress to the benefit of the so-called “casual luxury clothing“, which is no longer relegated only to the weekend, but becomes an alternative to the formal dress even on weekdays. Otherwise, another answer was to modernise the traditional gownby conferring it a more modern and transgressive impression.
Whether formal or casual, clothing should generally reflect the personality of a man, his irreverence, his instinct and sense of style. The different way of dressing can be considered a celebration of the individualism and of the spirituality. Consequently, more and more people prefer to entrust this task to those who have made of it a life purpose, a passion, investing every moment of their life into the world of fashion.
Additionally, a new tendency of both emerging and more traditional brands has been that to focus on a more modern approach based not only on the high quality of the product, but also on bold advertising campaigns, on shops with modern environments and avant garde furnishings and also the integration with ecommerce.
Choosing the best Italian man fashion brands is not easy, because among the designers many are those who stand out for quality, originality, respect for the tradition and search for innovation.
