Z Zegna: Paul Surridge on the way out

Dec 1, 2014

After three years as the artistic director of Z Zegna, Paul Surridge is getting ready to leave his position. The second Ermenegildo Zegna line, a luxury Italian menswear label, will as of next season be in the hands of Francesco Muzi, head designer of Jil Sander menswear, who will work alongside Murray Scallon.

The British designer occupied the exact same function when he left Jil Sander three years ago to work on the young Z Zegna after the departure of Alessandro Sartori.

Previously he worked at Burberry as senior designer of menswear, and at Calvin Klein as head designer. Since last season Paul Surridge had been working in tandem with Irish designer Murray Scallon, who was at Zegna Sport before that, a line that was merged with Z Zegna. According to our information, the departing designer wants to take a sabbatical.

Before Jil Sander, Francesco Muzi, a specialist in high end men's clothing, notably worked for Valentino, Miu Miu and Prada.
