Skillful cuts of the scissors to transform precious fabrics into formal garments, the icons of classical male collections.
A world leader in luxury menswear, the Ermengildo Zegna Group, with over 7,000 employees in the world, is one of Italy's most important enterprises and still preserves its nature as a "family business." The company's origins date back to 1910, when the young entrepreneur Ermenegildo Zegna founded the wool factory in Trivero, near Biella, to ethically produce the finest fabrics in the world thanks to innovation as well as to the search for excellent fibers directly from the original markets. With the 1960s his children Ermenegildo, Angelo and Aldo, began to promote the Group's entrance into outstanding sartorial menswear. In 1999 the woman's brand Agnona was purchased. In March 2012 ZegnArt was created, a project dedicated to contemporary art: the association includes several projects realized both in Italy and abroad in the field of the visual arts, in collaboration with artists, curators, as well as cultural bodies and institutions. Today the Group is headed by Ermenegildo Zegna, the founder's grandson, who was appointed CEO, and by his cousin Paolo, the company chairman.
