More than 80 years of Made in Italy craftsmanship go into everything that is created at Canali. This savoir faire is evident in all of their products, each with a distinctive story to tell. Explore these stories with us, step by step, starting with Rewind, a peculiar odyssey that reveals the secrets of an impeccably constructed blazer – the timeless cornerstone of the collections. The journey continues in The Gallery: an abstract space in which you can look behind the scenes of the creative process that goes into the crafting of Canali garments and accessories, each exhibited through unique mediums.

”Simplicity and the ability to interpret reality in a surprising way are, in my opinion, the defining characteristics of Italian cinema. “Craftsmanship”, originality and inventiveness are distinctive features of our history, of our artistic heritage.”

The tie is an exclamation point! A decisive conclusion to a sartorial sentence in search of a timbre. Individual threads form colours, motifs and patterns that speak volumes. Flourishes of personality, predilection, temperament, identity – exposed for all the world to see. The tie is pure expression.

The Art of the Tie

The man makes The Shirt. A whole, merely a sum of its parts. The Shirt is a murmur from beneath a jacket: second fiddle to a tie. Within, though, lies an intricate framework of precision. A collar with character, a cuff with intent, a fabric and form that do not yield. A silhouette is created by statute, leading us to wonder – is it the Shirt that makes the man?
