Gabriele Santoriello grew up in his family’s tailor’s shop and trained at the Istituto Superiore di Design in Naples. After several experiences and collaborations with important brands and companies, he decided to set up Italian Family. This is how his entrepreneurial project started, a contemporary reinterpretation of the finest tradition of Neapolitan tailoring. His key words are cross-fertilization and contrast – opposing worlds with the same DNA. It is what the designer calls Urban Tailoring, a style that retains a classic soul and blends elegance with the shapes, volumes, fabrics and colours of more casual menswear.
The SS22 collection contains the best of the brand’s concept: The art of the Neapolitan tailoring tradition combined with contrasting elements like shapes and colors that often take inspiration from the Amalfi Coast, the birthplace of designer Gabriele Santoriello. Fabrics and details from the classic world, which become stars for sportier trousers or jackets with particular accessories and color combinations, which lead to a simple but charming final result – comfortable, witty but elegant too.
