"True elegance for me is a manifestation of an independent mind."
As part of our centenary celebrations we looked into our archives and discovered that the legendary Founder, Head-Designer and Creative Director of the iconic VOYAGE brand, Tiziano Mazzilli had commissioned his own amazing pieces from Huntsman.
We invited him to 11 Savile Row to showcase some of these bespoke garments in his own style.
His own avant-guard, often outrageous and always iconic style may seem at odds with the formality of Savile Row tailoring, however, Huntsman; contemporary since 1849, created garments which reflect his own aesthetic, with the appreciation of the quality and craftsmanship of a bespoke commission.
This kind of style comes naturally to Tiziano. For the shoot, he pairs velvet coats with leather pants, leather ties with vintage t-shirts. Strikingly wide lapels and a pallet of crimson, black and white are incorporated into every look. Tiziano plays with regimental-style, another nod to Huntsman’s history as a military tailor.
This artisan revels in the process of putting together each look, his appreciation for craftsmanship reflected in his collection of vintage pieces, indeed every garment has a story of origin behind it. Musing on the shoot, Tiziano says “True elegance for me is a manifestation of an independent mind.” and we believe that couldn’t be truer of Bespoke tailoring, every commission is made specifically for you and to your requirements.
Of course, Tiziano isn’t the only designer to favour Huntsman as tailor of choice. He sits amongst the likes of fashion trailblazers such as Coco Chanel, Hardy Amies, Alexander McQueen, Bill Blass, Hubert de Givenchy, and Marc Jacobs.
