A brief history of Luigi Borelli…

“Luigi Borrelli” has made the history of Neapolitan tailoring.  A story of people, passion and promise. It was 1928 when Anna , with more than twenty years experience in the art of packaging tailored garments ( in her aunt’s laboratory), inaugurated a small workshop reserved for a restricted number of connoisseurs. Much more than a shop, a place where passion met with excellence. A place where a needle and thread entwined, weaving, gave birth to the intrigue of unique items, the heart of a story that would soon be handed down from mother to son, like any good Italian tradition. An inheritance received by the son, Luigi Borrelli, who with true passion, in 1957 founded the House of Luigi Borrelli. The beginning of a story destined to capture throughout the world, with the charm of the quality and tailoring. In 1987 Fabio Borrelli, Luigi’s son, established the winning business formula. The Luigi Borrelli product took this identity and become a little “object d’art” for the wardrobe of sophisticated connoisseurs. The shirts are manufactured with materials of the highest quality, hand finished by master embroiderers according to age-old tailoring techniques. The third generation has the credit of taking the company into the future, looking for small secrets from the past to move ahead. From 1997 the company started a process of growth geared to brand extension. Tailored garments, outerwear, jeans, knitwear and accessories complete the offerings of the Luigi Borrelli brand, and from this moment became a total look collection.
