A Sophisticated, Private Service
Ermenegildo Zegna has inaugurated its made-to-measure atelier right in the heart of Milan, providing a bespoke tailoring service for the luxury fashion house. This atelier is a unique place, a concept inspired by the idea of elegance: intimate and designed with a distinctly Milanese touch.
A special rendezvous for men who are invested in good taste and have the means to fill their closets in keeping with their lifestyle, their desires, and their needs. This service provides a complete made-to-measure wardrobe: from tailored suits and shirts to sportswear, by way of leather pieces, knitwear, and shoes, based on the client’s preferences. Each client has complete latitude to bring personal modifications to the characteristics of each item, as so desired.
Every garment is made at the atelier, by hand, and with a passion for work well done. Lightness, attention to detail, extensibility, and suppleness are the key words that define the fabrication of these works of art, where savoir-faire and workmanship go hand-in-hand.
Each made-to-measure garment is created by and for the client. A bespoke suit requires 200 steps, during which time 150 pieces are assembled, representing as many as 75 hours of work.
Key points: This new atelier offers an exclusive made-to-measure service elevated to the highest level of luxury. Impeccable cut and confection are guaranteed, with an expression of the very best in artisanal savoir-faire and a touch of modernity for such classic items of clothing.
Plus: The atelier evokes iconic references from the 1950s, the golden age of the city that recalls refinement and timelessness, and is accented with tributes to the architects that fashioned the public and private identity of modern Milan: Giò Ponti, Alberto Portaluppi, and Luigi Caccia Dominioni.
