Pal Zileri FW15 Milan Presentation
WHO IS PAL ZILERI?
The label originates from the principles of democratic tailoring that knows no limits. It was founded
and developed in the Vicenza province, an area steeped in values and history, home to the architectural oeuvres of Andrea Palladio, the workshops of goldsmiths and the distinctive taste of the Renaissance.
PAL ZILERI was conceived by two entrepreneurs, Gianfranco Barizza and Aronne Miola, who in 1970 founded Forall Confezioni SpA, an enterprise centered on Italian sartorial tradition and which, starting from its name – FOR ALL – emphasizes the attitude which has always been it’s hallmark.
Even today, every garment is entirely produced in Italy, either locally in the Quinto Vicentino
manufacture or by a network of Italian craftsmen selected for their excellent workmanship. This ethos combined with strategic distribution has further contributed to company growth. Since 2014, a majority share in the company has been held by Mayhoola for Investments, a Qatarbased private company, whilst Arafa for Investments and Consultancies – (Arafa Holding – AIVC), a public company based in Egypt, holds the remaining share.
A synthesis of fierce loyalty to cultural roots combined with an experimental avant-garde vision: the
new PAL ZILERI establishes an equilibrium between skills apparent only in contra-position.
AVANT-CRAFT is a concept encapsulated by this contemporary approach to a timeless tradition.
