Following news that Brioni and Berluti are parting ways with its creative directors, Brendan Mullane, and Alessandro Sartoria, respectively, the latest fashion shakeup comes courtesy of Ermenegildo Zegna. Creative director Stefano Pilati is exiting the fashion house. The designer spent three years at the helm of newly created Ermenegildo Zegna Couture. The designer arrived at the fashion house after a stint with Yves Saint Laurent that ended in March 2012. A successor for Pilati at Ermenegildo Zegna has yet to be reported.

Discussing Pilati’s departure, Zegna Group chief executive officer Gildo Zegna shares, “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’s development, I wish Stefano well for his future endeavors.”

Reflecting on his tenure at Zegna, Pilati expresses, “I 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. It has been an honor to work with this extraordinary family company that puts quality, craftsmanship, and excellence at the center of their business. I want to thank everyone at the Zegna Group and especially Gildo Zegna who has given me outstanding support and will remain a friend and a mentor.”
