For the many brands that I have seen at Toronto Men’s Fashion Week, FINEZZA – Au nom de l’Homme, definitely has to be one of my favourite discoveries. The brand founded by Ivan Lehec offers in-home tailoring services and is geared towards helping every man dress like a gentleman. Originally the brand caught my eye at TOM*FW with their incredibly dapper looks, and since then I have become a fan. The brand recently launched their new online-store, so I thought it would be the perfect time to reach out to Ivan to talk about his brand and to check out the fall/winter 2016 look book.
TPG: What inspired you for your Fall/Winter presentation?
Ivan Lehec: While winter is blowing its cold and colorless wind, Finezza will bring the warmth of a fire place, the goldeness of an old Cognac, spiciness of leather. Everything will be sophisticated, elegant, colorful and timeless classic of a gentlemen. The finale will bring you into the heart of the splendor of the opéra Garnier. It is also the occasion of exclusive launching of the new image of Finezza and our new ready to wear collection.
TPG: How has Toronto Men’s Fashion Week impacted your brand?
Ivan Lehec: Toronto Men’s Fashion Week opened many doors with FINEZZA Brand. It gave us opportunity to showcase our distinctive creation and our passion to offer personalized and customized service that will represent client’s own individuality not only locally but also having great exposure internationally. It gave us opportunity to dress celebrities, TV personalities and open-up new clients and businesses that we never thought we can have. TOM* gave us also inspiration to create and improve our designs because every show, every presentation is different. We are growing and we are very proud to be part and we are always looking forward to present our collections at TOM*.
