An obsessive quest for perfection and a deep love for traditional craftsmanship brings Mauro Grifoni to international attention such as one of the best italian tailors, no one single garment is made without maximum attention for every single details.
History and Growth Mauro Grifoni, the project's founder and instigator, has found two business and creative partners, Ilaria Sesso and Andrea Breda, whose contribution was vital in the definition of the brand's peculiar identity. In 1997 a women's collection was launched, followed in 2001 by a jeans line and in 2002 by accessories. Across all evolutions and ramifications, the brand maintained and strengthened its signature mix of harsh refinement and excellent craftsmanship. From the bespoke suit to the sweatshirt to the feminine wardrobe, a precise, eclectically coherent esthetic unites a whole range of products.
A new boutique, housed on three floors for a whole of 300 square meters, has been opened at the end of February 2009 in Milan's via Santo Spirito, in the elegant heart of the city. Responsible for the image of all the shops is a team of architects directed by Mauro Grifoni: the clean and artfully organic style runs perfectly in synch with the whole Mauro Grifoni esthetic. Each shop is designed to fit into the space's peculiar characteristics, thus not following a standardized formula.
