Conte of Florence

The brand made its debut in 1952 when the first shop named Con.T.E. Esclusivi was opened. The shop was situated near to Ponte Vecchio in Florence, offering ladies’ clothing made exclusively by hand by some of the city’s best-known dressmakers. In 1958 the name CON.T.E. was changed to Conte of Florence, and the shop made way for the company.

The Eighties coincided with Conte of Florence’s foray into the world of golf. The first designs were inspired by the historic link between golf and Florence. A total look collection for men and women was subsequently created and worn by many champions, including Costantino Rocca and Emanuele Canonica. These champions, each with their own style and personality, found the comfort and taste they were looking for in Conte of Florence clothes and transformed them into virtual uniforms, taking the brand onto golf courses all over the world.

Conte of Florence is the official fashion and clothing partner of the Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup 2016.
