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 Qatar-based private company, whilst Arafa for Investments and Consultancies – (Arafa Holding – AIVC), a public company based in Egypt, holds the remaining share.

The Secret. 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.

Avant Craft
As the doors of the new Pal Zileri Milan headquarters at via Morimondo 2/3 open for the first time, the “Camera Obscura” technique from the Renaissance acts as a symbolic bridge between the past and present. Viewers are immersed in a video art experience which stitches the artisanal Veneto origins of Pal Zilerito it’s new position at the leading edge of sartorial technology.
Meanings: The Fall-Winter 2015/16 Collection is an innovative take on sartorial standards, with contemporary sensibilities, proportions and techniques executed by the hands of Italian craftsmen.
Language: Internationally cultured in outlook, Italian in tradition.
Keywords: Nonchalance, elegance, synthesis, modularity, function.
Colours: Autumnal, discreet, with forays into the unexpected. A true green enlivens blue and brick red. Subtle hues pair with greys and browns whilst yellow ochre illuminates various shades of black.
Fabrics and Materials: Drawing on inspiration from the archives of Pal Zileri’s parent company Gruppo Forall, each motif has been reinterpreted and restructured. Houndstooth and Prince of Wales patterns, as well as other geometric designs are presented as prints and jacquards. Each element is presented with a discreet contemporary sensibility. Modern alchemic layering blends the finest yarns— alpaca, cashmere, superfine wool, silk wool blends, mohair, angora—and man-made fibres. Leather outerwear is structured yet wonderfully soft.
Silhoutes: Proportions are classical yet updated. Jackets are shorter with narrow, supple lapels, and pants are straight-legged. Overall, there is sense of tasteful restraint, along a spectrum from the more generous volumes of outerwear to the sleek and figure-hugging formal wear.
Must-Haves: The Parka, equally modish in sheepskin with a nappa finish or in leather and flannel, leather with a feather-filled lining, leather and fabric in a sort of reversible garment: the contrast is not only a creative quirk but fulfills two different functions.
Accessories: The tone is total understatement. Lace-ups with grip-fast soles, bags and backpacks all appear in the finest leathers. Their familiar appearance belies the fact that these are exquisitely crafted by Italian artisans.
Contrast: Biker jackets with prominent zippers are worn with tailored white shirts, whilst T-shirts are worn with formal wear. Such contrasts transcend the traditional boundaries of menswear to respond to the needs of the contemporary sophisticated man. Impeccable in every detail, this is the new Pal Zileri.
“An extremely diversified wardrobe where the silhouette of the new jacket and the new Vicenza suits form the backbone of the collection. Where classicism is the foundation of the new language of Pal Zileri,: an urban mix with great personality.” – Mauro Ravizza Krieger
