DOMENICO VACCA Italian Luxury Apparel+Accessories 2013

781 Fifth Avenue, NYC

Italian designer Domenico Vacca crafts luxury apparel for men and women...that are, we think, slightly under the splashy radar of other high-end 'lifestyle' brands (Tom Ford)---yet  the collections are similar in their selection of the finest---using only superb fabrics and quality leathers - that in turn, are made into elegant and modern-hand-tailored clothing (custom orders and RTW).
evening wear

We recently stopped by the Domenico Vacca Fifth Avenue boutique...a few steps from the posh Pierre Hotel...for a look at some of the polished items that this label is acclaimed for...including accessories and footwear for men and women.

women's sleeveless print blouse-with flattering seams
What we could call casual glamour---the exactingly sewn blazers, crisp button downs, plush cashmere crews, and well-cut trousers that flatter all-with exceptional fit--- that never go out of addition to classic, Italian made suits and elegant evening wear (as in what Daniel DayLewis wore to this year's Oscars' fest)...

--- a reason many men take advantage of Vacca's exceptionally skilled tailors and seamstresses-based in Naples, Italy---and his huge inventory of high-end fabrics---for their clothing.
women's lightweight blazer---year round apparel

pintuck details on the back

For women---the options range for sparkling cocktail frocks to always in style and fashionable jackets, blouses, skirts, and trousers-plus footwear and accessories---all carefully made with special design details that distinguish this collection from the ordinary -appropriate for any lifestyle and occasion.
