Alessandro Sartori is an Italian fashion designer born in Biella, Italy in 1966. He is currently artistic director at Berluti - LVMH Group based in Paris.

Career[edit]

He received a degree in textile engineering in Biella, Northern Italy followed by a degree in Fashion in Milan in 1989.

In 2003, he became Creative Director of the new "Z Zegna" line at Ermenegildo Zegna. Z Zegna was launched at Pitti Uomo, and its first show was showcased in New York in February 2007. Z Zegna successfully appeared at five New York fashion weeks, and then in Milan starting June 2009.

On 1 July 2011 he was appointed as Artistic Director at Berluti, shoemaker since 1895, with the aim of creating a luxury total look.

On January 20, 2012 he unveiled his first collection at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, with footwear occupying rows of chairs lined up as if for a fashion show. "It was an impressive debut." states WWD "Sartori’s collection was worn by a multigenerational cast of models in vignettes that telegraphed the Berluti lifestyle: playing chess in the library of a country chateau; having cocktails in a groovy apartment; gathering with friends under a full moon for a midnight shoe-polishing party, with Dom Pérignon as the shining agent (something serious Berluti devotees actually do)."

Style[edit]

Sartori's style has always been defined artful and a bit of eccentric with great attention to details, innovation and fabrics.

In 2005 the magazine GQ Spain awarded Alessandro Sartori the title of "Best International Designer" of the year.[1]

Clients[edit]

Among Sartori at Z Zegna's most famous clients are actors Daniel Brühl and Matthew Goode.

In 2003 he designed the outfit worn by Adrian Brody to receive the Oscar for Best Actor for the film "The Pianist".[2]
