After helming Yves Saint Laurent for many years, Italy’s Stefano Pilati has signed on as the new head of design for both men’s and women’s fashion at Ermenegildo Zegna, the Italian label best known for its expertly tailored menswear. Having worked at many of the prominent fashion houses in Europe—YSL, Giorgio Armani, Prada, and Miu Miu—Pilati makes the switch with a lot of creative experience under his belt. “I’m thrilled to have Stefano in our Group as he brings great talent, invaluable experience, and enormous enthusiasm,” Gildo Zegna, Chief Executive Officer of the Zegna Group, said in a statement. “We strongly believe that under his creative leadership we will be able to develop this little jewel into a global brand.” Pilati’s new post is effective January 1st of next year—we look forward to seeing how the brand will grow under new leadership.
