In September, it was announced that, following his departure from YSL, Stefano Pilati would join Ermenegildo Zegna as head of design and as creative director of Zegna’s womenswear counterpart, Agnona.
We haven’t seen or heard anything since, until now. Agnona feted the opening of a new store in Miami yesterday and while we’re pretty sure Pilati wasn’t there, one of his designs apparently was.
According to The Misshapes’ Instagram, DJ cum fashion it-girl Leigh Lezark’s pretty fur vest/dress thing pictured left is a Pilati design. Which we can believe–the color, luxe material, and sleek silhouette are all very Pilati.
Lucky girl! We’ve reached out to Ermenegildo Zegna’s PR to confirm and will report back when we know for sure.
Update: A rep from Zegna tells us Leigh was wearing Agnona, but the look was not designed by Stefano Pilati, who won’t start working there until January. His first collection will be for spring 2014.
