Sicily, where the land meets the sea. The swirling scents of the Mediterranean scrub and the citrus groves rise up among olive trees and zibibbo vineyards, to create a magical atmosphere that has captivated travelers and intellectuals since time immemorial. Here on this island, aristocratic mansions are set among walled gardens bursting with bougainvillea, with the blue sea on the horizon: a place like nowhere else.
This bewitching landscape of water, earth and fire is home to the understated, urbane style of Pier Sicilia. Sicilian artisans apply their tailoring know-how to fine fabrics and creative prints that combine vintage inspiration with a nomadic feel.
Pier Sicilia has a deep connection with its homeland. This is where everything began, drawing on childhood memories and a sense of nostalgia for the refined atmospheres so beautifully described in Tomasi di Lampedusa’s historical novel ‘The Leopard’.
Pier Sicilia is a dream that is gradually taking shape. The past becomes present, bringing to light traditional Sicilian savoir-faire, with its roots in craftsmanship.
Each Pier Sicilia garment celebrates the island’s sartorial tradition that is passed down the generations. The collection has a Sicilian spirit and timeless dandy style, with tailored details, comfort, excellent fit and versatility. These are vital aspects that transform the idea of a swimming costume into a wardrobe essential.
From cutting the cloth to the finished product, every step of the process takes place in the small tailoring workshops on the island. They are among the few left in Italy that can guarantee the expertise and old-school care to detail that makes every Pier Sicilia piece special.
Carefully selected fabrics are patiently sewn by nimble hands, for a product that displays impeccable workmanship; from handmade trims to buttons in mother-of-pearl and other natural materials. This impeccable quality is matched by impressive quick-drying properties and resistance to salt, sun and chlorine.
Proudly handmade in Sicily with love.
