Positano is a cliffside hamlet on the Amalfi Coast in southern Italy. With a pebble seashore and steep, narrow streets dotted with boutiques and cafes, it’s a well-known vacation spot for vacationers. Soak in the crystalline waters off the coast, enjoy the mini-cruise to see the tower cliffs from the sea, relax over a romantic dinner overlooking the water, and wander through the small, twisting alleyways shaded by wisteria and lemon trees.
And in this beautiful village, the Label Antica Sartoria was born! Antica Sartoria designer beach and resort wear is an Italian Positano fashion brand with influences of the early 60’s hippie era ‘Moda Positano’.
Gypsy inspirations, eye-catching embellishments, and breezy fabrics characterise Antica Sartoria’s collection. A large selection of dresses, shirts, skirts, and shorts will make your summer attire the most unique of them all! Elegant, sensual, youthful and colourful.
In a nutshell, the Antica Sartoria pieces are all must-haves that you should pack in your suitcase.
The designer’s creations are distinguished by colourful prints, lace details, and the use of pompons, tassels, and beads. If you wear one of Antica Sartoria’s pieces, you can visit a beach party, hippie fair, or a majestic village with style. To make a vibrant ensemble, mix and match the elements. Their collection has something for everyone, from gypsy tunics and dresses to boho skirts and ponchos.

The Story Behind Antica Sartoria
With help of the “Pezzari” (Neapolitan designer), Giacomo Cinque and Riccardo Ruggiti, the founders, created the Antica Sartoria label. Each piece in the designer resort wear line is a masterpiece, with colorful designs and fine fabrics that make each garment a work of art.
Antica Sartoria’s embroidered luxury kaftans, bohemian beach dresses, embellished lace tops, and tunics, as well as beach cover-ups, denim jackets, ruffled skirts, and other significant resort wear pieces, are all handcrafted in India.
