About Us

The Ermenegildo Zegna Group is a leading luxury menswear brand and one of the most renowned businesses in Italy. Founded in 1910 in Trivero, in the Biella Alps, by the young entrepreneur Ermenegildo, whose vision was to ethically create the world’s finest textiles through innovation and the sourcing of the noblest fibres directly from their markets of origin, the company is managed today by the fourth generation of the Zegna family with Gildo Zegna as CEO. Since the late 1980s, the company has implemented a comprehensive strategy of verticalization, creating a global luxury brand which now ranges from fabric to clothing to accessories, is focused on retailing, pioneering early entry in emerging luxury markets, BRIC and Asia in particular, and was the first luxury brand to open a monobrand store in China in 1991.

Ermenegildo Zegna celebrated 100 years of excellence in 2010. Today there are 546 Zegna stores (312 company-owned) in over 100 countries around the world. The total Group revenues in 2013 reached € 1.270 bn.

Zegna expanded its scope of activities in July 1999 by acquiring the luxury woman’s fashion brand Agnona.
