Kiton is an Italian luxury brand, known for its bespoke and unique tailoring. The Kiton suit – an icon of style – is cut one by one and is the spirit of the Kiton philosophy. The strength of the company lies in the tailoring excellence, pure, hand-made, artisan, enhanced by the selection of the most exclusive fabrics, the most prestigious in the world. Every detail reflects the Kiton philosophy; quality in every detail for garments that last a lifetime.
The brand Kiton was established in Arzano, near Naples, in 1968. Ciro Paone founded Kiton to affirm the values of elegance, excellence and “bel vestire” – characteristic of Neapolitan haute couture – around the world. The name derives from the word “chiton”, the ceremonial tunic that the ancient Greeks used to wear to pray on the Olympus.
The philosophy focuses on high quality: the best of the best +1, which has always been Paone’s motto and the company’s watchword. From a small artisan workshop composed of 40 master tailors, Kiton became with its handcrafted and made-to-measure creations an international brand with menswear and womenswear, as well as shoewear, knitwear, bags and small leather goods – a brand of choice for sophisticated connoisseurs around the globe.
Kiton has over 750 employees and is represented with 47 stores in 15 countries.
