Bagutta. Italian brand. Leading brand in the world of shirts since 1976. The Italian tailoring tradition is intertwined with new trends: in the last year Bagutta has inaugurated a new course. In fact, it presented a knitwear line characterized by warm and soft pullovers, trousers, duffle coats in wool and moleskin and outerwear. Everything is in perfect harmony with the exclusive and ancient manufacturing of shirts, for a more complete and contemporary proposal.

Bagutta’s market includes all Europea countries.  Additionally it also reaches buyers in the United States, Japan, Korea, Australia and China.

The brand is today headed by Antonio Gavazzeni and his cousin Andrea, the third generation of the family at the helm of the company.

Giubbolini Albertina, known simply as Albertina (1921-2009). She defined herself as a real knitter and not as a dressmaker of knitting. Discovered by Schuberth in the 1950s, she proved that wool could be used in high fashion and not only in sportswear. In 1954 she opened an atelier in Rome. Albertina Giubbolini (born in Colle Val d’Elsa) always worked on traditional machines and she owes her success to artisanal craftsmanship.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York has 12 of her models in its collection, which were acquired in 1984. They are considered masterpieces of creativity and innovation.

Several actresses, among them Gloria Swanson, Clara Calamai, Elizabeth Taylor and Lana Turner, have worn her creations. Furthermore important fashion designers, such as Alberto Lattuada, worked for her.

In February 2001, Giubbolini, together with the pioneers of Italian fashion, participated in the celebration organized at Palazzo Pitti to mark the 50 years since the first runway presentation organized in Florence by Bista Giorgini.

Then in December 2002, Lisbon paid tribute to the art of the Roman designer. At the Serra Tropicale, in the center of the Portuguese capital, more than 100 models were presented.

Albertina passed away in Rome in 2009.
