PARIS — In September, Paris-based Cifonelli, whose roots go back to 1880, will launch its first ready-to-wear collection, combining the house’s know-how — a mix of English, French and Italian influences — and a flurry of newly designed pre-measured cuts.
“My cousin and I have been creating bespoke for the past 20 years, and we want to give new impetus to our house,” Lorenzo Cifonelli, who runs the family-owned workshop with his cousin Massimo as part of the fourth generation, told WWD. But he said: “Our aim is not to copy other fashion brands, it’s to give a new, more modern vision to our savoir faire.”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
