Ermenegildo Zegna is an Italian luxury fashion house that designs and manufactures a variety of products, from clothes and fabrics to accessories like perfumes, bags, and eyewear. The story of the world-renewed brand began in 1910, when Ermenegildo Zegna established his Lanificio wool mill in striving to create the most beautiful and highest quality fabrics in the industry. The founder has always been ahead of his time. He got the noble, natural fibers straight from their markets of origin and brought them to Italy to be expertly woven. Consequently, Zegna exported these top-grade fabrics while popularizing his brand throughout the world.
Aldo and Angelo Zegna, the second generation of the family, have expanded the boundaries of the company by creating perfectly tailored suits crafted from the finest Merino wool. They have started offering their collections under their own label and making suits for Tom Ford, Yves Saint Laurent, and Gucci. In 1980, Zegna opened its first boutique in Paris, followed by shops in Milan and London. In their turn, the third generation of the family, Gildo and Paolo Zegna, invested in a retail expansion strategy for the company to become the industry leader in high-end menswear. Today, Ermenegildo Zegna is a globally-renowned fashion house with a retail network covering more than 600 stores in over a hundred countries throughout the world.
