Interview with Luca Rubinacci


March 8, 2013 by Ville Raivio

“29 years old [this interview took place two years ago] and Manager at Rubinacci S.p.a., BA degree. My parents are involved in the family business, my twin sister Chiara runs the London Branch and I do have two older sisters who take care of the Napoli Branch. We are The Neapolitan tailors. My grandfather invented the Neapolitan jacket, well-known all around the world nowadays, in 1930. I grew up in our tailor workshop in Naples so my mind has always been affected by clothes. When I was a kid, I use to be a sailor and part of the National Italian team and when I ended it up at 20 I turned into a smart classic mood. [My knowledge comes] from my father and I’m still learning.

It’s impossible to give a name to my style, I like to change every time, astonish, have fun, try what could be good and what not, be able to satisfy the customer million different requirements. [My designs are affected by]the entire world around me. I have the dream and my tailors the hand to make it becoming true! Kite surfing and snowboarding are my passion.

Be always comfortable with yourself and do not exceed. Come to Rubinacci!”
