Calugi e Giannelli has produced and redesigned clothing, with a concentration on menswear, since it was founded in 1982. Calugi e Giannelli clothing is perhaps an advanced art of the notion, frequently using language and wordplay, transferring avant-garde concepts, and constantly giving clothing a modern edge.
What genuinely identifies a Calugi e Giannelli garment is the concept behind it, or what press materials from 1993 referred to as “ironic temperament, a powerful core, and definitive taste.” Formal qualities are crucial, particularly as they are created using traits of fabric and fabric technology, most notably stretch.
