Stefano Pilati appointed at Zegna after leaving YSL

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.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
