Kiton is a luxury ready-to-wear and bespoke clothing company co-founded in 1956 as CIPA in Naples, Italy by Ciro Paone, a fifth-generation fabric merchant, and Antonio Carola. Launched in 1968, the brand gets its name from the Greek word chiton, a sewn garment worn by the Greeks that the Romans later called a tunic. Antonio De Matteis is the CEO and Antonio Paone is President of Kiton USA; both are nephews of the co-founder, Ciro Paone. The company's motto is ll meglio del meglio più uno ("the best of the best plus one").
