 CLAUDIO LUGLI  is an exciting Italian design company based in the United Kingdom. This clothing line is available at stores in the U.K. or online at www.claudioluglishirts.com.  A globally renowned menswear brand, Claudio Lugli has a growing reputation for creating garments with extremely innovative cutting and detail.  This company's signature product is their shirts.  Each one is an inspired work of art and made from the finest Italian fabrics. There are shirt styles available for women, as well.

WHAT MAKES A BRAND ICONIC?

When I think of iconic brands, several names come to mind such as Chanel, Ralph Lauren, Oscar de le Renta, Louis Vuitton,  and the list goes on.  What makes a brand iconic? It takes place by way of a  product becoming timeless through its heritage.  These products are present in every collection as best sellers.  Iconic models are seasonal reinterpretations.   

"I DONT DESIGN CLOTHES, I DESIGN DREAMS."
Ralph Lauren-1939
Ralph Lauren is another favorite of mine.  His garments are made with an elegant touch, but at the same time sporty.  The polo shirts for men are one of the iconic products of this brand.  Women's apparel is also popular along with fragrances, home d├ęcor, and suitcases.  I love these classy sweater dresses!
