Luxury Corner - From Norway to Savile Row
The International Family Offices Journal
Vol. 4 - Iss. 1 pp. 65–65
With fond memories of growing up in Norway with creative parents, Anette remembers reading an article about Savile Row when she was 18. She was fascinated. It was the first she knew of ?bespoke' tailoring. That term is from the eighteenth century when a bolt of cloth had already been spoken for by a customer. The landmark address for bespoke clothes was Savile Row in London. Savile Row has retained its position as the address for precise tailoring so much so that the Japanese word for ?business suit' is a word that phonetically sounds like ?savile row' (sabiro).
