Salvatore Piccolo has tailoring in his blood. At the young age of 16, Piccolo began working at a shirt factory in Naples, Italy where he received his first taste of fabrics of the finest quality and began to develop a steady hand for tailoring and pattern making. Soon after, he launched a bespoke business, which became a hidden gem for sharply dressed, Italian men, and shortly thereafter he created an off-the-rack collection that shows every season at Pitti Uomo.
Piccolo’s off-the-rack collection is the pride of Italy. The line is inspired by iconic, stylish men like John F. Kennedy and Steve McQueen, and cuts are trim and tailored for the modern man. Piccolo devotes up to 6 hours of work to each shirt that is manufactured, many of which are made by his own hands, and he primarily uses fabrics made exclusively for his line. He never cuts corners in the manufacturing process. In fact, Piccolo is a perfectionist with decades of experience under his belt and a reputation that is known throughout Italy.
Piccolo continues to capture the essence of the stylish eccentric with his SS14 collection. The tailored sportwear collection is better suited for day trips on the weekends, but it can double as your stylish office wardrobe as well. Lightweight fabrics and linens meet Italian tailoring with eye-catching paisley and plaid patterns that are complimented by custom accessories. For every character piece in the collection, there are a bevy of traditional shirts and suits each treated intricately and in such high regard as Piccolo’s bespoke shirting and suiting. You can’t go wrong with Piccolo’s bespoke or off-the-rack clothing. As long as the pieces have his seal of approval, you know that you’ll be wearing the best of the best in menswear.
Salvatore Piccolo will show his SS14 collection for the first time at Capsule New York in two weeks.
