Ermenegildo Zegna Taps Stefano Pilati as Head Designer
Former Yves Saint Laurent creative director Stefano Pilati is moving over to Ermenegildo Zegna to assume the post as head designer – with responsibility for the brand’s fashion show as well as for the Ermenegildo Zegna Couture collection. With his appointment, Zegna will continue to combine their tradition in tailoring and leadership in innovative materials such as hand-stitched suits in precious fabrics like cashmere and vicuna with luxurious details like mother of pearl buttons. Prior to the move, Milan-born Pilati worked in senior design and fabric development positions for a number of Italian design houses – including Miu Miu, Prada and Giorgio Armani.
