Born in Italy’s Romagna region, Gabriele Pasini is an ardent supporter of ‘Made in Italy’ and a follower of the Neapolitan school of tailoring. Before becoming a fashion designer he was a qualified ‘master artist’ and as a boy he attended the Gaetano Ballardini State Institute of Ceramic Art in Faenza.

Pasini has always had an innate aptitude for tailoring, developed over the years through professional and artisan training from leading Neapolitan tailors, learning stylistic techniques on the construction of the perfect jacket and gaining inspiration on the search for different shapes and materials.

Gabriele sees himself as a globetrotter and one of his main role models is Yves Saint Laurent, whom he admires for his elegance, nobility and modernity along with his classic and flawless styling, marked by a touch of melancholy and insouciance.

He continually finds his main sources of inspiration in his own origins and in Italian local traditions and culture.

Pasini opened his first store 25 years ago in Modena. In 2012, he entered a joint venture with Lardini, which still produces and distributes the Gabriele Pasini brand throughout Italy and abroad. Thanks to this collaboration, the first Lardini and Gabriele Pasini flagship store opened in Milan in 2017.
