Boho Chic Antica Sartoria Italian Resort Wear

It was the small turquoise fish logo that first caught her eye. As Renée Schaefer and her husband Curtis Sigretto explored the small picturesque town of Positano on Italy’s breathtaking Amalfi coast, they stumbled upon a small boutique called “Antica Sartoria.” The store’s unique fish shaped logo drew the couple inside where they discovered clothing that was very different from anything in the States. Antica Sartoria’s clothing designs were boho chic – fresh, inspiring and offering gorgeous statement-making pieces. Established during a fashion revolution in the ’60s when the famous “Moda Positano” style was born, all of Antica Sartoria’s clothes are designed by Giacomo Cinque who so loved embroidery and blending patterns that he started his own line of clothing incorporating daring color on light, airy fabrics. Far from the ordinary, his dazzling collection is now displayed and sold in dozens of Antica Sartoria stores in Italy, along with retail locations in Germany, France and England. While visiting Italy’s Positano store, Renée and Curtis immediately fell in love with Giacomo’s clothing and decided right then and there to bring his fabulous line of Italian resort wear to Florida.  Needless to say, for the boutique’s loyal fashionista following, owning one-of-a-kind clothing that not many others have makes is all the moreboho chic. In addition to the embroidered Indian gauze shirts, pearl-embellishedjeans, caftans, bathing suits, shirt dresses and other “must haves,” Antica Sartoria also carries lots of fun, colorful accessories and boho-inspired beach bags, along with a great selection of children’s clothing. You can find Antica Sartoria in Palm Beach Downtown at the Gardens on the first floor of Cobb Theater (561-799-1777); in Delray Beach at 512 E. Atlantic Avenue (561-501-7977); in Naples at Mercato Center next to Wine Loft (239-682-4006); and in Key West at 419A Duval St. across from La Concha Hotel (305-296-7617).
