Stefano Ricci sees himself more as a textile technician than a fashion designer. But there is no doubt that he is one of the greatest names in the menswear world. Commitment to the “handmade” and “made-in-Italy” philosophy is nearly a religion for the founder of the Florentine fashion house. Today, Stefano Ricci is a global company with a family-based culture. Stefano Ricci works side by side with his wife Claudia and children Niccolò, the group’s managing director, and Filippo, the research and product development manager. With over 50 boutiques across the world, Stefano Ricci is the guardian and ambassador of Italian elegance throughout the world.
