Passion and will
Luigi Dalcuore is a unique Neapolitan tailor, his personal experience is made up of will, creative zest and originality.
Luigi Dal Cuore didn’t start to work as an apprentice at a very early age, like most Neapolitan tailors, but a few years later, being spurred by a great passion and willingness to learn the trade. Since he was considered too old to be an apprentice, he found it hard to fit into the business environment, but he never gave up until he was welcomed at Del Duca tailor’s shop as a voluntary apprentice.
Tradition and creativity
Working for different Neapolitan tailor’s shops, Luigi Dalcuore learned the secrets of Neapolitan tailoring as well as the techniques aimed at creating the unique outerwear in the Neapolitan style. However, he wanted something more.
After spending some years travelling around Europe, Luigi Dalcuore came back to Naples and designed a unique original jacket. Always manufactured according to the techniques of Neapolitan tailoring, the outerwear designed by Luigi Dalcuore had an additional touch: his modern saddle shoulder with a completely different cut, in the Victorian style, was soon appreciated by his friends followed by the customers of his first atelier.
“The tailor who is not a tailor”
The new jacket was increasingly demanded and ended up giving him the nickname of “the tailor who is not a tailor” invented by his colleagues to highlight his originality, creativity, and wish to keep his artistic freedom.
Today, Luigi Dalcuore is still keeping the noble art of Neapolitan hand tailoring alive, while being always faithful to his unique personal taste as well as his inner wish to feel free from any kind of rule.
