Maison Franco Litrico, the historical bespoke house in Rome, and the fashion designer Fabio Quaranta, winner of Who is On Next? Uomo collaborated together for an exhibition of high-class sartorial craftsmanship.

The archive of Maison Litrico and, in particular, one of the jackets that its founder, Angelo, made for John Fitzgerald Kennedy during his visit to Rome in July 1963, was refashioned by the contemporary creativity of Fabio Quaranta. The lining of one jacket is obtained from an original American flag with hand-applied stars and the other was cut from an original 60’s US army jacket. The aim being to underline the private side of each one of us, even that of a legend like JFK. Like the lining of a jacket, an intimate aspect which only the person wearing it knows about.

The project has been presented during AltaRomAltaModa in July 2010.

Franco Litrico is featured in A Tailor-made Guidebook – Rome.
