Pal Zileri – Top Fashion Brand

Pal Zileri has been one of the most popular names in the fashion industry today. But where did this brand really start and who is behind it? Let’s find out.

Pal Zileri is a fashion house based in Vicenza, Italy. It specialized in men’s fashion, including formal and casual wear. Founded by two Italian designers Barizza and Miola in 1970, Pal Zileri is actually under the fashion house Gruppo Forall. The beginning of this fashion brand is aimed toward the aim of becoming a major player in the high-end fashion, which is what they are now. The brand takes high quality, exceptional corporate culture and production process as the cornerstone of its success.

Some of the collections include Pal Zileri Concept, which is their line of casual clothing for men for leisure; Pal Zileri Sartoriale, the brand’s premier collection of luxurious, comfortable and elegant men’s clothing tailored for perfect fit; and Abito Privato, a custom service label within the collection exclusive to loyal clients looking for tailor-made men’s wear.

Aside from having a number of stores and retail outlets all over the world, it also offers home service to some clients who needs more personalized tailoring services from any parts of the world.

The brand takes its pride for providing the best and latest in the fashion industry, which is reflected with the materials used in every product they made. Fabrics are chosen from some of Italy’s finest mills to ensure quality, satisfying the demand of the company’s high profile clients. The brand is also known for their excellent craftsmanship which shows their distinctive Italian style.

Always wanting to be true to their tag as “100% Made in Italy”, Pal Zileri has resisted the trend of shipping their production to offshore factories which offers low production cost. Unlike other fashion brands, they still rather put the premium on their products against cutting cost and degrading quality.

Review Of The Best Fashion Brands Of 2010

This review focuses on giving adequate information about the best fashion brands 2011. The best and most successful brands in the clothing and shopping niche have been D&G, Armani and Ed Hardy. There are definitely other brands that could also fall into this category, however, the 3 represented in this review definitely had a decent impact on how our teenagers and younger generation dresses today. Here are the reviews of each individual brand.

D&G (Dolce and Gabbana)

Dolce and Gabbana has been one of the leading manufactures and top providers in the clothing industry. Typical clothes and products that are produced from D&G are t shirts, jeans, belts, socks, caps, pullover, shoes, perfumes, watches, sun glasses, eye glasses, fan accessories, body lotions etc. The provider has been producing the highest quality products in all of these categories and niches since the last couple of years. In fact, D&G has become so popular that already teenagers at the age of 14 up simply love their products. We know that D&G is a great provider in quality and style, so the price must be remarkable high right? The prices for jeans, sun glasses and shoes are astronomic, and can hardly be afforded by many men and women. Unfortunately, this is why many fake products hit the market in the last decade and provided fake clothes and accessories from D&G.

Ed Hardy

Ed Hardy has been a sensation since the last couple of years. Through the production of high quality clothing like t shirts, jeans and caps Ed Hardy definitely stood out of the crowd. The America based company reached record numbers in sales in 2009 and 2010, and nobody sees this trend to slow down soon. It is similar to D&G one of the most professional clothing manufactures with a relatively high price standard. Caps can cost from around $70 up to $400 each. This is why only few people can actually afford original Ed Hardy clothes.

Armani

Armani is another top Italian cloth manufacturer. The strength of Armani lies in producing high quality jeans and belts. However, Armani also managed to bring perfumes and t shirts to the market that made it difficult for their competitors to fight back. The price is like for D&G and Ed Hardy accessories relatively high and not easily affordable for the average American. Armani accomplished to produce the best perfumes for both men and women in 2010.
This review was dedicated to the best fashion brands of 2010.

Socially Conscious Fashion Brands – Why We Need More Of Them

1. All the clothes are the same

The single biggest complaint about the state of fashion today is a distinct lack of original design. Particularly in the street fashion genre, the industry is plagued with a massive “me-too” complex. These days the challenge is all over, everybody wants to be the next “billionaire street label with all-over pattern designs”. Perhaps what’s even more sad, is that the customer has largely bought into such an extraordinary lack of invention, perpetuating the appearance of such mindless creations. It is really a challenge to look at the street fashion collections that come out today and get any real sense of distinct “design personality”. The group that loses when this happens is the customer, the customer that loses the ability to express themselves uniquely through what they wear.

2. Nobody cares for quality

In the latest Trend Report from trendwatching, one of the emerging trends for 2007 was “massclusivity” or exclusivity for the masses. What this has done, over the last few years, is commoditize all but the most luxurious products on earth. This has been done at the expense of quality. The fashion companies cannot make massive amounts of so called “designer” fashions at the same costs and with the same attention to detail as they would if they were not trying to flood the market with cheap clothes. As a direct result, quality has suffered, quality of the materials, quality of the designs, quality of the product delivery and quality of the production process. But more about that later…

3. Nobody cares for service

With the advent of mass commoditization, fashion has lost any ambitions of providing great service. If your goal is to move massive units of mindless cheap product, would you care so much about service? Would you put much effort into the experience your customer has with your label, with your brand? The labels have become faceless corporations with as much quality of brand experience as a vending machine. This has partly given rise to a larger fashion gap – the birth of “uber-premium” products where quality and service does matter though at such an expense that places them outside the reach of 99.9% of the mass class.

4. The designs don’t mean anything

Fashion has never been a great place to find meaning, especially not with any depth. This is odd, because one of the measures of great design in other realms of artistic expression are the feelings, thoughts and emotions a design evokes in those who observe it. This is a large part of how other arts are judged and how consciously and unconsciously, value gets assigned to them. Fashion has spent generations treading on thin ice in this area. With too much bias towards passing pop culture fads, fashion has systematically squandered the opportunity to intrigue, create wonder and make a statement to its masses of followers.

5. The creations are not new, only recycled

Perhaps even greater than the lack of inspiring creativity, sparkling variety and depth of meaning is the distinct absence of true innovation. If you take a complimentary industry, such as sports footwear – that industry has built real brand value through innovation. Cases in point are leading brands like Puma or Nike. Guilty in some respects of their own style recycling with the retro sneaker fad, they have over time made real attempts to consistently rethink the sports sneaker. And the customer has benefited with greater comfort, better performance and ultimately, better styling.

So what now?

Well to those consumers who are now becoming more conscious and aware of the real price of fashion, who are concerned about the impact of their choices in what clothes they buy, the following may be good advice –

o Buy fewer clothes

o Buy clothes that are more durable so they can last longer

o Buy clothes that are made as ethically as possible, with least energy and least use of toxic chemicals

o Buy clothes made by workers paid a credible living age, with reasonable employment rights and conditions

o Buy clothes that mean something to you, clothes that you can be proud of, and proud of wearing for a long time

o Buy clothes that give something back to the world that gave birth to them

Fashion may be dead in many ways, but it doesn’t have to be that way. In its proper form, fashion breathes. And when design, creativity, personal truth, honest expression and social responsibility meet – fashion sings. Because no matter what giant corporations may do, the undeniable truth is…

Fashion wants to live.
