Craftsmanship de rigueur

André Laug Craftsmanship de rigueur

Here is a place of true Italian excellence: prototypes for day dresses and cocktail dresses to be ordered made-to-measure, exhibited in the elegant showroom which enjoys an unparalleled view of piazza di Spagna.

Here, prêt-à-porter is a total stranger, and Laura della Croce and her son Vibaldo continue to enchant aristocratic and bourgeois ladies with superfine creations worked on in the tailor’s by expert cutters, tailors and embroiderers. Still respecting the austere and sober style which characterised the work of the French couturier, André Laug, who, in the 60s, left Paris to set up in the Italian Capital, conquering ladies such as Allegra Caracciolo, niece of filmmaker Luchino Visconti.

André Laug is featured in The Women’s Tailor-made Guidebook – Rome.
