Having received a standing ovation for his final fashion collection as creative director for Yves Saint Laurent last season, it has been announced that Stefano Pilati is set to join Italian menswear group Ermenegildo Zegna as head of design.
Hoping to bring something new to the table within the menswear line, Stefano will also oversee the womenswear franchise, Agnona, as creative director. While the likes of InStyle covergirl Olivia Palermo already a fan, we have no doubt Stefano will attract legions more.
Chief executive officer of the Zegna Group, Gildo Zegna, remarked: “I’m thrilled to have Stefano in our group as he brings great talent, invaluable experience and enormous enthusiasm. We have ambitious plans for Agnona, and we strongly believe that under his creative leadership we will be able to develop this little jewel into a global brand.”
