IL GUFO: REFINED ITALIAN LUXURY
Il Gufo is a premium clothing brand for those who want the absolute best. High-quality creations made by Italian artisans. Made in Italy is the go to, with the best fabrics and supreme style.
Founded in 1980 by Giovanna Miletti, who moved with her husband and 3 children to the Veneto region in Italy and started making clothes in the family greenhouse. The gifted mother was nicknamed ‘il Gufo’, which means ‘owl’, because she would stay up all night designing and sewing clothing.
Today, il Gufo is a well-established brand with international reach, but it still run by Giovanna and two of her children. Family is everything. The quality of the stylish and timeless garments is unparalleled.
AUTUMN WINTER 19
Il Gufo's AW19 collection takes inspiration from the yarn, material and origin of every garment, taking you on a discovery of new stories made of words and images.
The common theme of AW19 takes us back to where it all started: the hills of Asolo and the conservatory where founder Giovanna Miletti brought her first creations to life.
``I had glass walls put in the porch of the house, transforming it into a proper workshop, and I used to use my children's ping pong table to cut patterns.``
Attention to detail, a love of things well made and the value of a tradition that can be passed from generation to generation: these are the most important components that bring a quality collection to life.
From choosing the raw materials, to working with them, through to a finished, well-balanced garment. The reference to tradition is paramount in this collection. This season more than ever, the fluidity in the juxtaposition of shapes, materials, and especially colours makes the collection a reassuring representation of the tradition of the brand.
Every aspect is designed to offer a refined yet functional product, so that children can move around and play with total freedom.
