This opulent lineup of clothing targets a very specific — and wealthy — group of officials and businessmen. There were suits handmade from Super 130s wool and cashmere, all bearing Galasso’s signature, chunky hexagonal-shaped buttons.
Jackets and coats were fashioned fromembossed leather — some with large hound’s tooth or herringbone patterns — and with details such as leather-upholstered buttons. Velour or pony skin tuxedos were paired with mink fur bowties, while exotic skins, such as crocodile, were used for jackets or for the lining of mink coats.
Jeans boasted patches of blue crocodile or printed pony skin on the back pockets. A Galasso spokesman said the brand’s clientele hails chiefly from Russia, the Middle East, India, and Africa, and that the Italian market, while still in its early stages, is growing.
