Isaia was founded by Enrico Isaia in 1920 when he opened a fabric store in Naples, selling to the best tailors in the town. Soon, Enrico opened a workshop next to the store, producing tailor-made clothing for men. From here, the business expanded, and the 1980’s saw exports beginning abroad. Today, the brand remains family-owned, producing high-end menswear under the creative direction of Michael Handis, spotted easily by the red coral logo of the brand which derives from the Neapolitan belief in its good luck properties.
Renowned for their impeccable craftsmanship, Isaia produces ready-to-wear and made to measure garments. Made to measure services ensure the best fit possible, allowing the customer to choose the model and fabrics, as well as adding personalisation for that extra touch of individuality. In ready-to-wear garments, the same attention to detail is offered, drawing on a century of experience in cutting menswear. The label combines traditional tailoring with innovative design, keeping Isaia modern whilst consistently elegant. Using the finest fabrics, each Isaia piece is made exclusively in Italy, from wool and cashmere coats to silk-lined suits. Striking prints adorn ties and shirts, while understated sumptuous knitwear and sharply-tailored trousers endure as timeless essentials. Beautiful formalwear is met with styles for the everyday, such as polo shirts adorned with the Isaia coral logo, or sleek straight-leg jeans. The Isaia aesthetic is sophisticated yet modern, championing classic Italian style and craftsmanship for the ultimate look and feel of luxury.
Isaia has stores found throughout the world, in cities such as New York, Milan, Kiev and London. Their collections can also be accessed online through the label’s online store, and through Harrods.
