The end of World War II saw a dramatic change in the geography of men's fashion--staid, conservative British gave way to Italy's light, supple, colorful and daring styles. In 1952, when the rite of the runway was still exclusively for women, Brioni presented the first men's fashion show. Since then, Brioni has dressed many of the world's most recognizable men, from Gable to Wayne, Pacino to Baldwin, and Bond.
