FORMER YSL DESIGNER STEFANO PILATI LANDS JOB IN MILAN
by Rebecca Cope / 4 September 2012
Former YSL creative director, Stefano Pilati, who exited his job in March, has reportedly landed a high profile position in Milan according to reports.
An announcement regarding the designer’s new position is expected as soon as this week, before Milan Fashion Week kicks off on 19 September.
According to WWD, the designer is being taken on by the Zegna Group, home of the luxury menswear label Ermenegildo Zegna, and who also manufactured some of the menswear for YSL whilst Stefano was at the helm.
If he is making the move into menswear, it wouldn't be a surprise. During his 8-year tenure at YSL, Stefano had experience designing both the menswear and womenswear collections.
Upon leaving YSL, he was replaced with former Dior Homme designer Hedi Slimane, who will debut his first collection for the brand this season on 1 October.
"he waited for other people to understand what he was doing, instead of doing what they wanted.
Balenciaga never compromised."
