Three Part Interview with Antonio Ciongoli, the designer of Eidos Napoli.
Today (July 17, 2014), we published the first installment. The other sections will publish on Sunday (July 20) and then again next Thursday.
David Isle: Tell me about this double-breasted seersucker jacket.
Antonio Ciongoli: My inclination in the winter is always to do double-breasted corduroy, and then in the spring it’s seersucker. I’m from Vermont and I grew up in a relatively preppy family, but Eidos is not that. I love seersucker, but I want to Italianize it a little bit, as with corduroy. So I love the idea of doing a double-breasted, with three patches and four buttons. This was designed by color story, and was really the first color story of the season, which was sunset on the eve of a storm on the Bay of Naples. So you’ve got the storm cloud gray with the orange of the sunset, and then a cool, crisp white.

veudon said: Are the button-fly white chinos Eidos - upcoming season? Do you know will be carrying the sportswear in the line around the Philadelphia area? Any possibility for an online shop? Thanks.
The button fly white chino that I was wearing at pitti? Those were my grandfather’s and are nearly 100 years old! We replicated them for the collection and they are currently available at bloomingdales in new york and san francisco in white and at chcmshop.com in navy and gray. As for Philly, no sportswear yet since I don’t know of a store that would be right. Feel free to hit us with some suggestions!
