“A family-run company now in its third generation, Canali is a modern-day design and manufacturing group with its own production centers all located in Italy and more than 1,800 employees worldwide. In addition to its 250 boutiques a number that continues to grow, the brand can also be found in over 1,000 retail stores in more than 100 countries across the globe.”
Canali is a high quality men’s brand based out of Italy. Founded by Giacomo and Giovanni Canali in 1934, they started as a family business. The company has now grown into an international business with over 1,700 employees. At Canali, “80 years of Made in Italy” goes into everything they create.
Canali really emphasizes the “fluidity” of the process of creating a garment, whether it be trousers, a sport coat, or a full suit. On their website, they cover this in “Rewind”, a short film going over the process of creating each garment. “Rewind is a three-minute film about everything that is hidden, everything that comes before the simple act of putting on a jacket. This journey transpires in reverse, like a melodic dance, moving backwards from the final creation all the way to the initial idea. All this to convey that there is nothing simple about the process and that behind every single detail lie many individuals, hundreds of steps, care, attention, and also, love. Rewind tells a story of passion, creativity, commitment, teamwork. As with a film or with any finished work of art, it is impossible to imagine just how much time and effort is involved.
This film is dedicated to all of this work. An homage for all those who work behind the scenes of that world.”
Canali prides themselves in using premium fabric, the latest fashion trends, and sartorial excellence to create all of their products. The Canali tailoring principle aims to achieve aesthetic perfection; anything short is sent back to the drawing board for revision.
