History[edit]

The history of Rubinacci, began with art collector Gennaro Rubinacci's own tailoring emporium; he opened London House, at 25 Via Filangieri.[2] In 1961, Gennaro’s son, Mariano, took control of the company. In 1963, he changed the its name to Rubinacci, maintaining the initials of the original name in the logo. Later, a branch was opened in Milan, in 1989, and in London in 2005.[3]

Luca and Mariano Rubinacci

As of 2018, Luca Rubinacci, Gennaro's grandson, is the creative director of Rubinacci, and responsible for launching the firm's ready-to-wear line. He is considered a particularly stylish dresser.[4]
