It is during the 80s that Umberto Bilancioni created the first collection Bilancioni. Knitwear has always been the core of creation, an absolute protagonist with its bold handcraft features matched with precious leather. Collections have been enriched by suits, shirts, accessory with a casual chic inspiration, being designed to satisfy the attentive taste of elegant globe-trotters.
