My Defining Moment?
“I come from Biella, 10km away from where Ermenegildo Zegna founded his wool mill in 1910 creating the best environments to produce his clothes. He shaped the local landscape planting more than 500,000 trees in the hills surrounding the Zegna mill, carving the Panoramica Zegna road. The creative innovation and the history stemming from our roots are essential. Design is a continuing conversation between craft and modernity, two very different worlds. When you find the way to perfectly merge them, here come the major innovation in style. Being back to my roots is a Defining Moment: I feel part of this territory as well as of this family. It’s romantic being back with people I love.”
