Interview: Sebastiano Tomada Piccolomini

President’s in conversation with Sebastiano Tomada Piccolomini, our AW16-17 artist-in-residence.  You're an accomplished photojournalist. Tell us a little about you and your path to where you are. Photography was a passion that came out of nowhere. I have no idea how, where, or when I began learning to use a camera. During my college years [...]

In the Details

They say the clothes make the man, but it is the details that make the clothes. If the generations of Italian saper-fare that goes into each and every President's garment has taught us one thing, it is that quality and excellence come from doing the small, subtle things very the best way possible. We always start with [...]

Interview: Sean Michael Beolchini

President's in conversation with Sean Michael Beolchini, creative director of  Super Sunglasses. Photos by Heather Sten. You're a total renaissance man – you've done so much. Can you give us a brief background of you and your work?  Oh! That’s the first time someone ever said that to me! But I honestly don’t think I deserve [...]

President’s in Port Magazine

One of our very favorite titles on the newsstand, London style and culture magazine Port Magazine, got a little presidential in their SS16 release. This 18th issue marks their 5th anniversary–we're always impressed at how well this independent magazine has established itself as a strong point of reference in such a short time–and features dual covers with Pritzker Prize-winner Tadao Ando and influential novelist Will [...]

Interview: Alessandro Simonetti

President's in conversation with Alessandro Simonetti, our artist-in-residence for SS16. How'd you get your start as an artist?  I’ve been immersed in the visual world since I was a child.

Last week, they welcomed the SS16 collection to their store with a party and an exclusive T-shirt featuring artist Alessandro Simonetti's campaign photo for the season. We interviewed Jey, who was [...]

Inventory Magazine interviews Guido Biondi

We were saddened to learn recently that one of our favorite menswear titles, Inventory Magazine, has printed its last issue. Nevertheless, one of the very last online features the magazine published is an excellent longform interview with President's creative director, Guido Biondi. As a bit of a silver lining, we hear from a good source that Ryan Willms, Inventory's [...]

Spring Summer 2016

President's Spring Summer 2016 collection is inspired by pre-war adventure and exploration. This season marks the introduction of a distinctive Indian print, inspired by wallpapers from The Roaring 20s, and a color palette of blue, military fatigue green, red brick, and shades of sand. As always, exceptional textiles are front and center, and among the tactile pleasures [...]

Interview: Tag Christof

President's in conversation with AW15/16 artist-in-residence, Tag Christof Above: New Mexico, 2015. President's A/W15-16 Campaign photo. Much of your work focuses on America. How do you square that with being appointed for the campaign of a proudly Made in Italy brand such as President’s? It’s funny, because I’ve actually lived much more of my adult life [...]
