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.
Adv FW18: Family Portraits, Crossing Generations
The vision of Creative Director Rocco Iannone for Pal Zileri acquires a strong iconographic presence and a filmic consistency with the launch of his ADV campaign for the fall winter 2018 Collection.
In Villa Valmarana “Ai Nani”, a jewel of Palladian architecture frescoed by Giambattista and Giandomenico Tiepolo, a series of portraits shot by Johan Sandberg, pay tribute to Venetian painting, generating an anthology of #PalZileriPortraits. Pictured in the campaign, seven men of different ages, but belonging to the same family, united by strong ethical and aesthetic bonds. In the group shots, similarities and differences unfold: looks, poses, and stances communicate a sense of natural individuality, but all the characters shares the same ethos and virtues, crystalizing them as true Pal Zileri men. Heralds of the virtues of the contemporary men, effortless and nonchalant, the members of this cross generational clan, seem to have arrived from a journey, but are ready to depart again, to manifest anywhere the bonding of tradition and modernity.
