|Fabio Caviglia suited to dress Asia with distinction|
The Caviglia Group, is creating distinctive high end Italian menswear, using the techniques that the family business perfected generations ago. The family, a Jewish family from Rome, still designs and manufactures all the products in Italy and maintains a shop there. Â
An additional store was opened in Australia when Fabio Caviglia moved his young family there in order to take advantage of the strong and stable Jewish community life in Australia.
In June 2005, brothers Pacifico and Alessio Caviglia recognised the rapidly expanding demand in Asia for luxury goods and opened a retail boutique in Hong Kong, in the shopping arcade of the Pennisula Hotel in Kowloon. While they had great hopes in the potential of the Asian market, they have experienced growth and success at a rate more rapid than they even anticipated.
This fast success has led to an expansion of their shop in the Pennisula, the opening of a shop in Harbour City and plans in progress for additional shops in prime locations in Macau, Beijing and possibly Central, Hong Kong.
The Caviglias plan to continue to produce their menswear in the same manner that their grandfather did in Rome. They have one line, with only slight variations in design for their Asian stores.
The clothing is unique and best described as perfectly suited for Asiaâ€™s international cities, â€œEast meets West with sophistication.â€
Their luxury goods are distinguished by their fine detailing and superior silks, cottons, linens, leathers and crystals and the â€œMade in Italyâ€ label.
The brothers are hands-on with their management of their boutiques, designs and manufacturing processes.
Many of their goods are still made by hand and they are able to completely cater to this niche market.Â Fabio Caviglia promises they will continue to dress their customers â€œwith distinction.â€
