Neapolitan maestro, Gennaro Solito, came to Hong Kong for the Sartoria Solito bespoke tailoring trunk show, on the 8th and 9th of June. While this was his son, Luigi’s, 4th visit, it was the first time for Gennaro. We are very honoured that he made the journey to see us and all the Solito customers.
The Italian family business ‘Sartoria Solito’ was founded in the 40s by the ‘Maestro’ Luigi Solito, who was joined at an early age by his sons Antonio and Gennaro Solito. Gennaro Solito was born in 1945 and when he was only ten years old he started to learn the first notions of tailoring guided by his experienced father. In 1966 Gennaro Solito opens his first own tailoring atelier in Via Chiaia, Naples. But after 4 years he moved his atelier to Via Toledo number 256 where he operates until today and which is, after 46 years, still the one and only atelier of Solito Tailoring in Naples. Gennaro Solito has been joined in the 90s by his son Luigi Jr. who started to learn on a daily basis the art of tailoring.
