February 3, 2016: Ermenegildo Zegna Group and Stefano Pilati announced that after three years as Head of Design for Ermenegildo Zegna Couture, Mr Pilati will step down from his position.
Gildo Zegna, Chief Executive Officer of the Zegna Group said, "I want to thank Stefano for his contribution to Ermenegildo Zegna. We wanted to develop a strong point of view in fashion as well as style, and for Zegna to be a show not to be missed in Milan. We have reached this objective faster than expected. As we move on to write new chapters in Zegna’s development, I wish Stefano well for his future endeavours."
Mr Pilati said, “I now wish to focus on other projects that I had put aside in order to achieve our common goals with Zegna Couture. It has been an honor to work with this extraordinary family company that puts quality, craftsmanship and excellence at the center of their business. I want to thank everyone at the Zegna Group and especially Gildo Zegna who has given me outstanding support and will remain a friend and a mentor.”
The Fall/Winter 2016 collection Mr Pilati presented in Milan on January 16, 2016 is his last for the house.
