Happy 100th to Ermenegildo Zegna!

Pressed, ironed, and no wrinkles—we all wish we could look like Zegna at 100!—Ermenegildo Zegna celebrates 100 years of history at the Museo della Triennale in Milan.

The festive event unfolded into 2 shows: the casual Z Zegna line and the relaxed but classic Ermenegildo Zegna label.
The year was 1910 and Ermenegildo, the last of 10 children, was just 18 years old when he took over his father’s little wool factory in Trivero.
Situated in the Province of Biella of the Piedmont Region, Trivero had played a vital role in history for the production of wool, owing to the purity of water.
The factory rose quickly to fame for high quality wool suits, outshining local contemporaries and surpassing British rivals.
Although Ermenegildo died in 1996 at the age of 74, his two sons Aldo and Angelo took the reins, opening numerous plants for production.
Angelo, his youngest son, remembers his father as “an ecologist long before the term even existed!"
Tanti Auguri, Zegna!
