Stefano Pilati, the head of design for Ermenegildo Zegna Couture, has quit the Milan-based men's wear brand Ermenegildo Zegna.

The brand made the formal announcement about Pilati's exit on Wednesday, confirming rumors that had been swirling this week. Ermenegildo Zegna became the third Italian men's house to lose its designer in a week. The brand said Pilati's departure was by mutual agreement.

Gildo Zegna, the chief executive of the Zegna Group, said in a statement, referring to Pilati's departure: “We wanted to develop a strong point of view in fashion, and for Zegna to be a show not to missed in Milan. We have reached this objective faster than expected,” Gildo Zegna, CEO of the Zegna Group, said in a statement.

Pilati said, “We have reached the conclusion that the mission he entrusted me with has been fulfilled” and he was ready to move on to “other projects I had put aside in order to achieve our common goals with Zegna Couture.”

Pilati joined the Trivero, Italy-based firm in 2013 after exiting Yves Saint Laurent in March 2012. He was named creative director of Agnona, and head of design at Ermenegildo Zegna, with responsibility for that brand's fashion show as well as for the Ermenegildo Zegna Couture collection. The designer has worked in senior design and fabric development positions for a number of Italian design houses, including Miu Miu, Prada and Giorgio Armani.(SH)
