Husband and wife Silvano Gerani and Giuliana Marchini Gerani launched Italian label Iceberg in 1974, bringing on a then-nascent design talent, Jean Charles de Castelbajac, to help craft its signature knit sportswear. The label would expand its burgeoning business in the coming decades, moving beyond men’s and women’s ready-to-wear and into accessories, denim and fragrance. In 2013, Alexis Martial, a five-year veteran of Givenchy under Ricardo Tischi, assumed the position of Creative Director, succeeding family scion Paolo Gerani.Building on the strong tradition of thoughtful, fashion-forward knits and sporty separates, Martial melds high-tech fabrics with rich cottons, cashmeres and wools, creating tailored pieces that strike a balance between futuristic and classically chic.
