Rome, Via Barberini, 1945: Brioni tailoring, destined to become a point of reference for high class international men’s fashion, takes its inspiration from the love of elegance of Nazareno Fonticoli, the tailor from Penne, and the enterprising spirit of Gaetano Savini – a business man- from Umbria. The fashion house takes its name from the Istrian island frequented by the most exclusive European jetsetters in the first decades of the twentieth century.
The company represents the cutting edge of the sartorial expertise and tradition of Italian design. The company continues to grow thanks to the descendants of the founding families who remain committed to ensuring the highest standards of excellence in made-to-measure. A global managerial structure and an expanding strategic sales network, make the brand an unrivalled international company in the luxury tailoring and lifestyle market.
