“There is a threshold beyond which art ceases and industry begins”
These are the words of Ferdinando Caraceni, who has never wanted to overcome that threshold.

In 1939, at the age of 16, already a “qualified” worker as he proudly defined himself at that time, Ferdinando arrives in Milan and for thirty years works with A. Caraceni, his great master. In 1967, Ferdinando Caraceni founded his tailoring in Milan in Via San Marco. For over sixty years, Ferdinando works with passion and dedication. We are in 2004, when Ferdinand Caraceni leaves us. But his heart remains and his teachings have been so authentic that her daughter, Nicoletta Caraceni, after having worked alongside her father for more than 20 years, decides to carry on Ferdinando Atelier with the same principles while maintaining a craftsmanship exclusively.

I carry on my father’s work with the same spirit and pride, grateful for all the teachings received. Our suits are not for everyone. Beyond the economic value, we want to dress people who still appreciate the work of the handmade tailor and, therefore, want to wear unique bespokes, made with passion, ability and love ”

Nicoletta Caraceni

Today, Caraceni’s atelier is recognized worldwide as an Italian excellence. Nicoletta, as her dad taught her, is caring for a maniacal quality that begins with the choice of fabric: whether they are British fabrics, cashmere of Scotland or Irish linens, they must always be the best.
