AVANT-CRAFT

The spirit and skills of the past, the style and science of now

Inspired by timeless Italian heritage and echoing the designs of new Creative Director MAURO RAVIZZA KRIEGER, Pal Zileri sews together traditional craftsmanship with avant-garde style and advanced techniques—a vision we call AVANT-CRAFT. Ravizza Krieger is an authority on men's apparel, a stylist as well as craftman, he brings a rare sensibility for meanswear to Pal Zileri, one he developed working with the finest tailors and fabric of London, Rome, Paris, Milan and Berlin and consulting for Loro Piana, Herno, Allegri and Caruso.

BIRTH OF A LANDMARK: the 1980s

In 1970, entrepreneurs Gianfranco Barizza and Aronne Miola founded Forall Confezioni SpA, a company dedicated to traditional craftsmanship and a radically modern principle contained in its name—“For All”. Throughout the '80s and '90s, fusing centuries-old methods with the language of the moment, they created a signature label, Pal Zileri.

A NEW ERA

Today, Pal Zileri is undergoing a moment of creativity and growth unlike any in its 45-years. With a new owner Mayhoola Group – which in July 2016 acquired full stake in Forall Confezioni S.p.A., gaining full ownership with 100 percent of the company - a new creative vision, a new leadership and new stores launching around the world, Pal Zileri is reaching new customers across the globe.

A REPUTATION EARNED

EACH PAL ZILERI PIECE IS PRODUCED ENTIRELY IN ITALY: IN QUINTO VICENTINO WORKSHOPS OR BY THE NETWORK OF SELECTED ITALIAN CRAFTSMEN

Pal Zileri solidifies an international reputation as one Italy’s most esteemed menswear brands, one famous not only for the quality of each garment, but for its timeless take on elegance and style. The seamstress-signed label on each graceful jacket—many of them created using 180 different manufacturing steps—tells the story of its unparalleled value and excellent workmanship.
