How do you go about marketing pure elegance, fine art, genuine feelings and never ending passion. When it comes to presenting through the prism of haute couture for gentlemen. This is my story, my style and why I choose to wear Sciamat.
Sciamat, an Italian brand, based in Milan, created by Valentino and Nicola Ricci, triggered the great evolution of Pitti Uomo. Sciamat completely changed the way modern “dandies” used to dress, creating a whole new generation of bloggers, tailors and dressers. I had the honour to meet both of them and wear their exquisite bespoke clothes, by virtue of their first retailer in Greece, Bespoke Athens. For me in 2016, it is important to be able to understand the art of clothing and how to make it look so effortless when it comes to my personal style.
Valentino and Nicola Ricci deeply respect and adore handmade, therefore they are dedicated to bespoke tailoring, which is unique. They create gracious and majestic, yet artistic, boheme and rock jackets with high collar, wide lapel, bold breast and delicate waist.
Sciamat’s main aim is liberation through the freedom of movement. They manage to create beauty without restriction. There is no padding, in any of their clothing and upon customer request they even completely avoid use of canvas. They have managed to remove all structural elements by the use of innovative cut and by forming, stretching and shaping the fabric. The result is a super-light, comfortable, yet stylish and luxurious garment. A natural reflection of their unique creativity.
My Style Tips
For me it is important to choose clothes that represent me. I chose the following. A single-breasted jacket with curved lapel, double-breasted vest in pied-de-poul pattern and prince –de-galles overcoat, all made by an extremely heavy cloth that only Sciamat could manage to make it feel so light. It is important for me to be comfortable but look good at the same time.
They created a gorgeous drape and it was important for me to team it with a tie & shirt, once again understanding these are all handmade by Bespoke Athens. Yes, of course, it makes a difference in appearance but also in my personal confidence.
The exquisite handmade shoes by Ioannis Karagiorgos, felt amazing and I could walk in them all day long. Finally, it is an accessory I want to trend this year and it gives it an added touch to who I am. Yes I am talking about the gorgeous cane by Swaine Adeney Brigg.
