For Italian designer clothing in Singapore, one of the good alternatives is Kiton, a luxury ready-to-wear and made-to-measure fashion brand with one boutique available, located within Takashimaya Shopping Centre (391 Orchard Road). (UPDATE 2022: THE STORE HAS CLOSED)
Founded by Ciro Paone in 1956 in Naples, Italy, the brand operates under a philosophy of working hard to achieve perfection.
The collections are inspired by classicism, quality, and social distinction, as referenced by the brand name, which comes from “chitone“, a ceremonial garment worn by ancient Greek aristocracy.
Both the label’s ready-to-wear and made-to-measure men’s suits are among the world’s most expensive and most desired pieces of clothing. Employing around 330 tailors, most suits take approximately 25 hours of labor, with at least 45 tailors contributing to each one.
The dress shirts are also hand finished, and you can also purchase their sevenfold silk neckties, pocket squares, sunglasses, trousers, and jeans, as well as fragrances, which have been made in collaboration with Estée Lauder Companies, Inc. since 1995.
The company creates several collections for each season, including men’s clothing collection, women’s clothing collection, men’s footwear collection, women’s footwear collection, men’s accessories collection, women’s accessories collection, and eyewear collection.
