After thirty years of leading Italian fashion house Ermenegildo Zegna, Stefano Pilati has announced that he will be leaving the label. After a successful career at Yves Saint Laurent, Pilati joined Zegna in 2012 as Creative Director.
“I have given much consideration to this decision and after thoughtful conversations with Gildo Zegna, we have reached the conclusion that the mission he entrusted me with had been fulfilled. I now wish to focus on other projects that I had put aside in order to achieve our common goals with Zegna Couture, ” says Pilati.
No word yet on who will be taking Pilati’s place after his exit.
