Ciongoli’s 18 East Collection Features Artisan Handwork

Antonio Ciongoli knows how things work in fashion — and he’s breaking the rules.
Ciongoli, cofounder of Eidos and one-time deputy creative director of Michael Bastian, on Thursday will unveil his new collection, 18 East, a line of men’s wear created by artisans in India and Nepal.
The line is being financed by RRR Brands, a multibrand platform that acquired the women’s brand Roller Rabbit at the end of 2017. Ciongoli joined RRR Brands as creative director last fall working with Andrew Seibert, who is also founder of the private equity firm Bricker Holdings. Roller Rabbit is also an India-inspired artisan brand.

The initiative, which launched in 2014, has grown from 28 students at its inception to 300 matriculating this year.
“What creates desire is product, and creation would not exist without the skills of the craftspeople who are behind the success of our houses,” said Chantal Gaemperle, LVMH’s group executive vice president, human resources and synergies.
Gaemperle insisted on the program’s focus on “work-training to practical, tangible, certifying, free and paid educational tracks” to “encourage employability” and also underlined the need for “training strategies to promote learning throughout one’s career,” to address the evolving needs of employees called upon to work longer. She found satisfaction in seeing apprenticeship restored to its former sterling reputation, she later added.
Among the new educational tracks offered this year, which now range from the CAP to master’s degrees, are a leathermaking course with Florence’s Polimoda design school, one in goldsmithing at
