Master tailor Adrian Costanzo shares his thoughts on style

- +

Adrian Costanzo may be Australian by birth, but Italian roots run thick in his blood — or in this case, thread. It comes as no surprise that the elegantly dressed 31-year-old has made his own clothes since the age of eight.

It became a passion that found him a place among Italian luxury houses, where he worked with private clientèle, developing personal looks by creating made to measure garments, as well as obtaining a master’s degree from the Istituto Marangoni in Milan. Today he is on the top of the made to measure totem pole, as a master tailor at Brioni, an Italian high-end fashion house which specialises in customised suits. Also known as the “power suit” worn by presidents, Hollywood actors, sport stars and the ever-smooth James Bond, Brioni’s one-of-a-kind ensembles are handmade in Italy and carry a hefty price tag (from 200,000 up to 5 million baht), but are second to none regarding sartorial spectacularity.
