Ermenegildo Zegna rappresents the exelleces of the Italian manucturing, his sartorial shirts, the wool coats, the balzers and the knitwear are the perfect example of the luxury tailoring production.
The Ermenegildo Zegna brand was founded in 1910 from the dreams and passion of one man, Ermenegildo Zegna. As soon as he becomes adult, he inaugurates Lanificio Zegna, the first reality of what will become one of Italy's most famous and dynamic family-run companies. His dream is creating, according to his words, "the most beautiful fabrics in the world".
But Ermenegildo has an even broader idea: to transform the environment and the lives of those around him, obtaining the best natural fibers directly in the country of origin; innovating the product and production processes; promoting the brand and investing in the environment of its suppliers and employees.
In 1972 Zegna launches the tailor-made and in 1980 it opens its first boutique in Paris. Other inaugurations follow, for example in London in 1983 and in Milan in 1985. The boutique of the Palace Hotel in Beijing, inaugurated in 1991, is the first of a western luxury clothing brand for men in China.
Today, its offer includes clothing and accessories and the Ermenegildo Zegna Group has over 500 boutiques and 7,000 employees worldwide. But above all today Zegna fabrics are still among the most appreciated Italian exported products.
