NEW YORK — Renato Cecchi, owner of the Italian textile finishing company Santo Stefano, is hoping to revive d’Avenza, a heritage tailored clothing brand that was popular in the 1960s and ’70s.
Now in its second season, d’Avenza’s white label has more of a luxury bent and is aimed at a fashion-forward consumer. It consists of three iconic models, according to Bill White, head of the U.S. sales. All exquisitely finished, the pieces in the collection include a constructed blazer that boasts titanium buttons and a belted back; a military-inspired, peak lapel topcoat; and an unconstructed, unlined travel blazer. White said additional models will be added to the collection over the next few seasons.

"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.
