Not able to go to Paris for Capsule I was eager to see what kind off brands would be spotted by Tenue de Nimes at the fair. They came across a nice example of Italian craftsmanship: "Calabrese". This brand was founded by tie enthusiast Eugenio Calabrese.
For him the tie was the most important part of his wardrobe. Therefore he had a collection of 200 different ties, so his tie could always fit his mood. Being an entrepreneur, and always looking for new styles and fabrics, he started his own company in 1924. In the 60's they started distributing their ties to tailors and shops all over the world. Choice of fabric and finishing were the ingredients which clearly distinguished them from the competition.
Nowadays the collection consists of ties, bags, scarves and accessories. The good news is we are going to carry the Calabrese bags in our store.
