- Gandhara was born by the inspiration of Federico Kapnist, 34-years-old entrepreneur from Vicenza. Whom, after getting two degrees in Economics and International Relations - both of them in Milan - has lived in London and Hong Kong working into the trade organizations field.Back in Veneto, he partnered with a communication agency in Verona before succeeding his father in the management of family’s real estate business.Then in 2018, in Monte Berico, Vicenza, in the very heart of Veneto and just a few kilometers far from the Gulf of Venice’s sea, he decided to give birth to magnificent swim trunks for man.Antiques and precious patterns, inspired by masterpieces conceived by man in different ages and places, revive on superb and top quality garments, handcrafted in Italy, hand-refined and numbered.Every single phase of the production took place in Italy: fabrics print, tailoring, packaging.Gandhara swim trunks are excellent products, a genuine expression of Italian craftsmanship and mastery in conceiving magnificent garments.Gandhara – an ancient kingdom in Central Asia prospered more than 1000 years before Christ, and then conquered by Alexander the Great’s armies, throughout his Asian campaign – left to the world, as its heritage, a unique artistic style: the art of Gandhara, indeed. In which Indian and Persian elements mixed up with the unique features of Greek and Hellenistic art.An ancient, uncommon yet sublime fusion of some of the most important civilizations in the human history along the Silk Road; in a crossing point of ancient caravan routes, where different peoples and religions coexisted in harmony for centuries.Respecting this fitting blend between East and West, among different styles and skills, our first collection – developed and entirely crafted in Italy – pays homage to the ancient kingdom of Siam, current Thailand.
