First-class airfare and luxury accomodations for two in Milan and Naples. Priced upon request.
Kiton is opening the vaults of the Barbera mill, a 165-year-old stone mill in the Piedmont region of Northern Italy, to Robb Report readers, allowing the choice from a trove of historic cloths in order to produce the ultimate modern wardrobe. The journey starts in Biella, an hour outside of Milan where the Robb Reader will be hosted through the complexities of textile design. In addition, to unfettered access to the private Barbera fabric archives, the Robb Reader will have the opportunity to work with the mill’s textile designers to create his own signature cloth, complete with his name woven into the the selvege edges and later visible inside the finished suit jacket.
Southern Italy, particularly Naples, where Kiton is based, is regarded for its tailoring prowess that is second to none. It is where the word handmade is the hallmark of everything , from the shirts, suits, neckwear and footwear produced by local artisans. Here the journey will continue, as the Robb Reader and a guest travel to the company’s elegant palazzo-style factory, furnished with 18th century antiques and an early 20th century art collection. The Robb Reader will be given a grand tour and a private consultation with Silverio Paone, Kiton’s master tailor. Paone will personally take the Robb Reader’s measurements, assess his lifestyle and clothing needs, and assist in assembling a one-of-a-kind wardrobe.
