Ivy Oxford's history begins in the early Fifties, the years of the American dream: the largest clothing industries in Italy and Europe were getting started.
Luigi Cappio's family also owned a textile company. The future founder of Ivy Oxford, with the support of his inheritance, completed his studies and began a careful examination of the most innovative materials and trends in the sector. His goal was to put his skills to work in a market that was as open and dynamic as ever. The result was a small company that produced nylon rain gear: the product's practicality and uniqueness made it an immediate successo.
