“We are proud to participate in the new global launch and development of a brand that we’ve been following from close-up for some time,” said Gilmar chief executive officer Paolo Gerani. “In particular we have been impressed by the artful way it gives men’s clothing a smart contemporary twist.”

“For a brand so focused on knitwear, this agreement coincides with a fresh beginning, the embarking on a new and important stage in our evolution,” said Pecora, who founded his label in 1984. “Gilmar is definitely one of the most organized companies in the Italian fashion industry and it’s able to offer its partners the fundamental support, both in terms of know-how and technology, to innovate the productive processes and enhance quality.”
