THE L.B.M.1911 BOUTIQUE - L.B.M.1911 has chosen the luxury and exclusive aura of Via della Spiga as its starting point for retail expansion. The boutique, at number 30 in Via della Spiga, develops over approximately 150m2 on two floors, and unfolds a contemporary idea of Urban Jungle inspired by the atmospheres of New York, Sao Paulo and Berlin, where flora coexists in harmony with the concrete jungle of these metropolises. Vintage furniture items (some of which belong to the Bianchi family, almost creating a continuum with the company’s hundred-year history and its new image) mix with items of contemporary design. With the launch of the boutique, our brand, renowned internationally as a leader in high-end tailored menswear, has written a new chapter in its story, which is rooted in the centenarian tailored tradition of Lubiam, the Mantua enterprise that launched the brand over fifteen years ago, due to an intuition by Giovanni Bianchi, CEO and Style Director.

The L.B.M.1911 collections are based on a concept of informal but refined elegance, focussed on strong innovation and great care to detail. Constant research in fabrics and materials has resulted in specialised expertise in the use of exclusive dyeing, finishing, washing techniques and handcrafted aging methods that give garments an aged, worn effect. Thanks to years of collaboration with experts in the finishing sector, L.B.M. 1911 has created unique finishing methods, with ‘finished garment’ techniques produced exclusively in Italy. These products undergo extremely complex procedures that are far more difficult than those used for traditional items. Thanks to its expertise, L.B.M.1911 is considered a leader in this sector. The new L.B.M.1911 boutique in Via della Spiga 30, in Milan has enhanced the reputation of the brand even further as an international point of reference for highly exclusive menswear tailoring.
