The Thom Browne segment saw an 8.1 per cent YoY growth, hitting €95 million for Q2 FY23.

“I am particularly pleased that we are gaining market share, and I am confident about the strong opportunities ahead as the menswear segment grows globally with both existing and new audiences. The strong execution of the One Brand strategy has made Zegna a global favourite, with successful collections which include staple luxury leisurewear items and our signature Triple Stitch sneaker. At Thom Browne, the work being done to strengthen womenswear continues to show great progress and the category is now outpacing the growth of menswear. The group’s financial progress underpins our confidence that we are comfortably on track to meet our previously announced 2025 financial ambitions,” said Ermenegildo ‘Gildo’ Zegna, chairman and CEO of the Zegna Group.
