An innovator and creator in custom tailoring, Nigel Curtiss has built an enviable reputation both within and beyond the fashion industry. After thirty years of passionate attachment to the design and production of superbly tailored clothing, including a long and highly productive association with Rei Kawakubo at Comme des Garcons, and stints with Yves St Laurent and Kenzo, Curtiss remains committed to the simple idea of small, limited editions of elegant, highly wearable garments for men and women. He is a true believer in ‘everyday luxury’, expressed in garments of the highest quality, designed and made with zero compromise. Not just for that special occasion, but for every occasion. Custom clothing guaranteed to improve your look and elevate your outlook. To indulge in such casual luxury can help cultivate a sense of well-being, positive energy, and personal security in this turbulent world.
Nigel has dressed the likes of Derek Jeter, Simon LeBon, Lily Aldridge, Kyle McLachlan, David Schwimmer, Maryna Linchuk, Jeff Gordon and others. Now, it's your turn.
After many years as a pioneer and brand builder in the inner circles of the fashion world, Monica Mitro has now joined her husband Nigel Curtiss to collaborate on the expansion of Nigel’s successful custom business. Together they have reshaped the brand to include a select grouping of ready to wear luxury essentials for men and women, everything from formal tailored pieces to the perfect white shirt, luxury loungewear, silk PJs and custom denim. These favorite pieces, in small, curated collections, will be available in Nigel’s first retail store, recently opened in New York’s fashionable Meatpacking District.
This launch is a labor of love for both Curtiss and Mitro, who have enlisted their longstanding fashion friends and family to help realize their vision and make it a full-on family affair. Daughter and model Aiden Curtiss, and her boyfriend, Felix Prabitz, are the faces of the campaign, which was shot by a family of photographers—the legendary Sante D’Orazio, his partner Enga Purevjav and his son Nick D’Orazio. All of the fabrics used in the new launch capsule are sourced from family-run and owned factories that have been part of Curtiss's signature tailored designs for decades. It is his commitment to organic and ethically supplied materials and sustainable models for luxury fashion that drives Curtiss in this new iteration of his career as a designer.
Nigel and Monica truly believe that a sustainable approach, with zero compromise in quality, is the future of fashion. Respecting these principles, all products are manufactured in small quantities, employing local factories, using digital printing, organic fabrics, recycled yarns, and eco-friendly finishing and packaging.
