Damn it. I should have bought some jacketing when I was there. That's a nice store.


if you really like it you could order it over the phone and gennaro can pick it up for you. he did the same for @Punt who is in the above picture.

Huh, that's a good idea. I'll see if Magnifique sends swatches. Fat chance, but would be nice to handle it in person first.

i doubt whether they do overseas swatches. but you can always ask. if they don't ask gennaro and andrea to get a clipping at magnifique. i guess the paones will happily mail it to you.

Respect him a lot! Not only his actual work but his attitudes toward the industry are refreshing. He really runs his business true to himself. 

 Found his home and showroom he uses for his runway shows randomly roaming the streets in Paris last summer. It was pretty cool!


I agree. To me, it seems he celebrates the female form more than most RTW designers, where it seems some are designing the garment without a body in mind. From what I've read, he's one of the few sustaining his business without relying on hyped-up bags and perfumes. Id love to randomly stumble on his workshop. I bet it was an awe-inspiring sight.
