WE DRESS EVERY PERSON IN THE WORLD WHO ASPIRES TO SELF-IMPROVEMENT WITH TAILORED AND RESPONSIBLE ITALIAN ELEGANCE.
In Italy we have a unique manufacturing heritage, and it’s our responsibility to protect it. This is why we have a network made up of 94 micro enterprises selected in every region of Italy, each specialised in a particular sector of production. Through this strategy of outsourcing Italian craftsmanship we can offer our customers all the quality and excellence of Made in Italy.
Our ambition is to help the finest Italian manufacturing tradition to surpass itself. Our collections are indeed designed not only to satisfy the most exacting tastes, but more importantly to ensure that an increasingly large number of people worldwide choose the value of elegance for their everyday lives. This is the objective that we set ourselves from the very start, because we are firmly convinced that the future will have room only for ethical fashion.
Climate change is a global issue that demands global solutions, but it also needs everyone to do the most they can. We can contribute in our own small way, leveraging a project of sustainable and intelligent innovation. We have already thrown down the gauntlet: we have launched all-round research to reduce the consumption of the production system, and we shall not let up until we have reached the decisive “zero impact” level.
Marco Baldassari is the creative director for menswear. Paolo Zuntini is the creative director for womenswear. It was their idea of responsible Made in Italy fashion, pivoting on ceaseless research into the textiles and the quest for a style that could meet contemporary demands, that gave rise to Eleventy.
2007 Marco Baldassari and Paolo Zuntini found Eleventy.
2009 Andrea Scuderi enters as partner and Operations Executive.
2014 The private equity company Vei Capital buys up 51% of the company.
2016 Eleventy USA is founded with its headquarters in New York.
The growth of the Group, the headquarters of which have always been in Milan, is accompanied by a retail development plan now consisting of a network of 19 single – brand boutiques – 7 in Italy, 5 in Korea, 2 in Austria, 1 in France and one in the States – and of over 500 multibrand outlets throughout the world. The logistics centre is located in Viterbo.
With the entry of Vei Capital, the Group has also implemented a programme of alliances to accelerate the internationalisation process.
But this is just the beginning. Our story doesn’t stop here and we are constantly devoting our best efforts to fostering ethical fashion and Italian elegance all over the world.
