Founded in New York by Antonio Ciongoli, the Creative Director of classic Italian menswear brand, Isaia Napoli, Eidos takes a more casual and directional approach to Italian sprezzatura—artful or beautiful dishevelment. Ciongoli envisions the collection as an opportunity to introduce high quality tailored clothing to a new generation. The label’s name is rooted in anthropology—the term “eidos” refers to the essence or intellectual character of a culture—and Eidos embraces its namesake, producing sophisticated collections with soul and integrity. Taking inspiration from contemporary New York design and time-honored Italian manufacturing, Eidos modernizes traditional Neapolitan menswear, seamlessly combining sportswear with elements of classic tailoring.
