I was invited to the Rome store opening, co-hosted by Monocle magazine, of this Milan based company. I went with my partner in fashion and art crime, Erica. We had an excellent time (and some prosecco).
This men’s store is fantastic. I wanted to check out Officina Slowear before bringing my client, Coach G. I thought he would like it. He did and we found some great pieces. Over the weekend I saw him wearing the polo shirt he bought and he was rocking it. Riccardo, the store manager, was super helpful and even gave Coach G a book as a gift.
Officina Slowear is preppy chic meets Italian style and tailoring. The clothes are cut slim and made with high quality materials. Price wise, they’re mid-range, more expensive than J. Crew but less expensive than a store like Kiton.
Slowear has a few international stores… London, Seoul, and Paris. I think they’re opening a store soon in Mexico City and you can find some of their clothes at Barneys in the United States.
The store also carries interesting books and accessories. If you’re looking for causal clothes with style, this is the place.
