Another very expensive menswear store opened its doors in Bolshaya Dmitrovka - it’s a monobrand shop of an Italian brand Angelo Galasso. It is for rich people who choose to stick to conservative views on the clothing and who prefer variations of classical style.
At the same time «Angelo Galasso» is a very young brand. Before creating his own brand, its owner and designer used to work for a long time for a brand that is well known in Russia - Billionaire Italian Couture, created by Flavio Briatore. And the first shop of Angelo Galasso’s own brand was opened in London in 2009. The enterprise is very successful and is developing very fast - Angelo Galasso stores opened in Milan and Moscow in this year, and the openings in New York and Shanghai are planned for autumn. Moscow store has two levels, the design has been created specially for our city by Mariquita Papi and it is overtly expensive: lacquered eben wood, artificially old fumed oak, velvet and silk, marble and gilding.
Angelo Galasso style is now of great demand. It is a specific union of accented splendor of barocco that visually demonstrates success and love to life, with a classic men suit, loyal to puritan bourgeois traditions. Of course Angelo Galasso clothes are ideally tailored and sewn, using traditional hand made technologies and the most expensive materials of the best quality. The assortment is regular - day and casual suits, tuxedos and velvet blazers, shirts, jeans, jackets, tracksuits, and also footwear and accessories: oxfords, loafers and moccasins, ties, belts, bags (from more sporty ones to those that are made for hats), humidors. Silhouettes and proportions are clear and distinct, almost fully responding to the modern rules of classical menswear - apart from the high stand collar on the shirts that have become recognizable in a short period of time. At the same time, luxurious materials and complex detailing are visible in any item from Angelo Galasso store. Even the simplest day-to-day shirts have faceted thick buttons, and ones of the evening ones are finished with crystals… All jeans have leather inserts, most often python and crocodile ones, and are decorated with very elaborate embroidered monograms that this brand uses instead of regular jeans stripes-emblems. Leather belts have very complex buckles made of carved bone and of openwork metal, there are also belts that have reptile heads buckles: snake ones on python belts and crocodile ones on crocodile belts. Ties have two layers - they have complex cuffs through which one can see silk of a contrast color. Almost all the clothes, apart from the most strict business suits are finished with thin contrast facings. These facings are a recognizable feature of Angelo Galasso.
Assortment of Angelo Galasso shops varies. This is a principal position of the designer, according to him, he is against the globalization in luxury clothing. Apart from that, the clients of the brand travel often and Mr Galasso does not want them to see the same set of clothing and accessories everywhere. Another serious advantage of the brand is the size range: one can easily find here clothes for very tall men, so the sleeves of the shirts and blazers will not turn out to be too short. And of course, one can order made-to-measure items in the shop.
