Agnona

The Agnona story starts and continues with quality. Agnona means precious Fabrics that are dedicated to clothes for women and are called on to interpret the collections of the most important international stylists. Since the 1970s, Agnona has meant a pret-a-porter collection plus knitwear for women, simple elegance that underlines the value of the raw materials and craftsmanship. Lines and fabrics go together, one enhancing the other with a harmony that identifies Agnona.
Agnona means a line of Accessories (stoles, scarves, hats, gloves) and a line for the Home (travelling rugs, blankets, slippers, robes) created in the most exclusive fibres in the world.
The story began in 1953 with Francesco Ilorini Mo, who began as a textile worker and became a fabric designer in love with the most sought-after fibres and how they could be used.
Eccentric and innovative, he discovered the pleasure of respecting the raw materials and shaping them in a style that was simple and natural. He developed a preferential relationship with the most important woolgrowers in the world and always achieved unmistakable quality: superfine wools in Australia, alpaca in Peru, cashmere and camelhair in Tibet and China. Since 1994 Agnona has been one of the three members of the International Vicua Consortium, thanks to which it, and only two other members in the world, have the worldwide exclusive on the production and sale of that invaluable fibre.
At the Borgosesia facility in Italy, every stage of the procedure is entrusted to specialist departments where technology and craftsmanship work hand in hand. A production that can count on the direct acquisition of the raw materials, on its conversion into precious fabrics, and on garments with a modern style, close attention to detail, and exceptional finish. Today Agnona's windows look on to the international shopping streets of Milan, Florence, Venice and Porto Cervo, and the most important airports - Milan Malpensa and Venice Marco Polo - in Tokyo, Shanghai and Seoul, in the dedicated areas of the most prestigious department stores - Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Harrod's - as well as in the best speciality stores in the world's principal markets.
In 1999, the Ermenegildo Zegna Group, which already held a significant number of shares during the 1950s, acquired complete control of the company.
