Ermenegildo Zegna is an Italian fashion house known for producing quality menswear since 1910. The house was originally founded by Ermenegildo Zegna and remains a family business today, under management by the fourth generation of the Zegna family.
The company produces every aspect of its clothing, from fabric to finished product. The Zegna Wool Mill was also founded in 1910 and produces the fabric used in Zegna suits. The company is one of the biggest producers of fine fabrics in the world, producing more than 2.3 million meters of wool per year. In addition to their own high-quality suits, Zegna also produces wool suits for other designers including Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent and Tom Ford. Zegna is known for its commitment to quality, exploration of technology and improvements in wool production.
Manufacturing began in 1910, and by the 1930s, the mill employed more than 1,000 workers. Ermenegildo's sons Aldo and Angelo joined the family business in 1942, and took over after their father passed away in 1966. Under their leadership, a second factory was opened in Spain, and eventually Switzerland. Today, Zegna has eight manufacturing facilities around the world, and the company offers ready-made suits in addition to made-to-order suits.
Zegna opened its first boutique in Paris in 1980, and today has more than 500 boutiques around the world, with flagship stores and mega-stores in every major city around the world. Zegna's offerings have expanded to include a full range of menswear, including suits, neckties, kntiwear, shirts, accessories and fragrances.
The first fragrance from Zegna was offered in conjunction with YSL Beaute. The company signed a new licensing agreement for the production of fragrances with Estee Lauder Companies in 2011.

The second fragrance for men of the Italian designer Zegna is modern and youthful. The bluish bottle of sports design is practical and elegant and will for sure be liked by the younger audience. The fragrance opens in fresh and fruity notes of bergamot, rosemary and Casoar fruit (blue berries from New Guinea similar to blueberry, which olfactively resemble red currant), and yellow Mirabelle plums. The exotic fruits give a modern green-fruity nuance. The spicy heart of iris, nutmeg, and white pepper announce arrival of sensual woodsy notes, warm and natural: cashmere wood, patchouli, musk, and oak moss. The perfume was created by Antoine Lie, Pierre Negrin i and Olivier Gillotin in 2005
