On Monday (February 1), donbleek.com reported that “Stefano Pilati is said to be leaving Ermenegeilo Zegna Group.” You could see it here!

We were correct! “Pilati will step down from his position as head of design for Ermenegildo Zegna Couture,” the designer and the Ermenegildo Zegna Group confirmed today. The designer’s Autumn/Winter 2016 collection which was shown in Milan last month, was his last for the house.

I want to thank Stefano for his contribution to Ermenegildo Zegna. We wanted to develop a strong point of view in fashion as well as style, and for Zegna to be a show not to be missed in Milan. We have reached this objective faster than expected. As we move on to write new chapters in Zegna‚Äôs development, I wish Stefano well for his future endeavors,” said Gildo Zegna, chief executive officer of the Zegna Group in a statement.

Pilati added: ‚ÄúI 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.‚ÄĚ
