Back when Savile Row was synonymous with masculine style, an innovative Italian, Gaetano Savini, put his country on the map, forever reinventing menswear. From the first men's fashion show at Florence's Palazzo Pitti in 1952, to his artisanal influences still evident in today's styles, Savini was truly a cutting-edge designer. His legacy as the visionary and designer extraordinaire behind the luxury brand Brioni is celebrated in this spectacular illustrated edition. Highlighting examples of Savini's innovative cuts, bold colors and psychedelic patterns that drove the peacock revolution of the 1960s, The Man Who Was Brioni includes sketches and newspaper articles illustrating how the man became legend. Filled with letters, photographs and personal anecdotes from Savini's daughter and Brioni heir, this volume details the brand's profound influence and how it came to be known as "the Dior of menswear."
