I must admit that whenever I have an unexpected meeting in Barcelona, just the thought of visiting Santa Eulalia turns the trip into something more exciting; even before I get on the train.
On Monday, November 7th we welcomed the week organizing a tailor workshop in the men's section of Santa Eulalia. The president of the Italian company Kiton, Mr. Antonio de Matteis, Mr. Luis Sans and blogger of El Aristocrata and El Mayordomo, Mr. José María López-Galiacho, approached the guests to the wonderful world of two opposing tailoring different styles: English versus Neapolitan.
Yesterday, October 10, 2011, took place at Círculo Ecuestre an event that moved us to the wonderful 30’s of the charismatic Duke of Windsor. At 7:30 p.m. the guests were invited to enjoy an interesting conference to bring them closer to the world of tailoring and afterwards served a cocktail where they could see the Duke’s suits gotten by Kiton in an auction Sotheby's in New York in 1998.
Kiton was founded 30 years ago by Ciro Paone and Antonio Carola and is situated on the outskirts of Naples. The love and passion for men's fashion together with a desire to produce a high quality traditionally made garment is the philosophy of Kiton.Where does the name Kiton come from? It owes its origin to the Greek word “chitone” which is a ceremonial robe the aristocrats wore in ancient Greece.
