The 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". His tailored shirts, wool coats, blazers and knitwear are the perfect example of luxury tailoring production.
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.
Zegna rewrites the codes of men's elegance with innovation, refinement and quality. The collections, dedicated to the world of work, travel and leisure, interpret a contemporary lifestyle, combining the best of technology with tradition. The brand is constantly evolving, while maintaining its own stylistic codes, today combining activewear and streetwear with luxury, with an international vision.
Today, its offer includes clothing and accessories and the 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.
