A press release announced today that Stefano Pilati – formerly creative director of Yves Saint Laurent – has been appointed at Agnona and Ermenegildo Zegna:
Zegna Group announced today the appointment of Stefano Pilati as Creative Director of Agnona, the Group’s women luxury ready-to-wear and accessories brand founded in 1953, and Head of Design at Ermenegildo Zegna, with responsibility for the brand’s fashion show as well as for the Ermenegildo Zegna Couture collection.
Both appointments are effective 1st January, 2013.
Pilati was at Yves Saint Laurent from 2004 until his departure in February of this year, after which time Hedi Slimane took over and changed the brand’s name to Saint Laurent Paris. The appointment is a promising coup for the largely under-recognised Agnona brand.
