Culatello, Opera, and “Fefe Napoli”: Caruso’s Flagship Opening

By Emory Lopiccolo

November 14, 2014

Italian menswear brand CARUSO made its global debut last night at its new flagship location at 45 East 58th Street in New York. Founded by the Neapolitan tailor, Raffaele Caruso, in 1958 in Soragna, the new flagship remains true to Italian stylistic traditions. All the materials used in the store, such as the oak flooring and terracotta tiles, were sourced from Italy, while traditional Italian garden terraces and the Teatro alla Scala in Milan inspired the format of the store.

CEO Umberto Angeloni acted as host last night, celebrating the best of Italian design, art, music, and hand tailoring. Guests such as Prosper and Martine Assouline, Michael Avedon, Christopher Forbes, Edward Jay Epstein, Isabel Rattazzi, and John Loeffler enjoyed an evening filled with Italian delicacies like Culatello, porcini risotto with truffle, sbrisolona cake with almonds, and burtti ma boni cookies as well as Lambrusco wine served by butlers dressed as “Fefe Napoli”—a quirky clown-like character created by Caruso.

DJ Marjorie Gubelmann created the soundtrack for the night, and incorporated a mix contemporary Italian music with classic operatic arias. Angeloni also commissioned Giuseppe Amato, an Italian intarsia artist, to create an art piece on which he actively displayed the changing of the seasons.
