“When I was sketching something, I didn't feel alone. Eventually, I said, ‘Enough — I'm going to belong to another world instead.’ And the fashion world looked beautiful."
In this issue, we introduce to you the elegant and charismatic Italian designer Stefano Pilati. Best known for the eight years he spent leading the YvesSaintLaurent design studio in the 2000s, his role as Creative Director for Ermenegildo Zegna since 2012 has produced well-received collections for the house, and were an expression of his casually elegant, personal aesthetic.
This year on February 3rd, Pilati announced his exit from the 106 year old luxury fashion house. His next step has not been revealed but we will be expecting great things from this sophisticated designer.
