MEN IN COUTURE. Bespoke suiting is a common practice in the field of menswear, but Dolce & Gabbana takes things up a notch by launching Alta Sartoria, a couture line dedicated to men.
Not only does it employ artisanal skills and exquisite tailoring, the couture line also incorporates the brand’s widely celebrated Italian machismo and dandy flair into the designs. As such, some of the pieces are emblazoned with embroidery, beadwork and other intricate details one can hardly find in ordinary bespoke suits. Basically, customers can customize every aspect of their chosen outfits from the collection from fabric selection and cutting preference, to button details, thread colors and accessories. To date, the line is exclusively available in Milan with an opening in New York to follow.
