Managing director Massimo Suppancig has tapped Saverio Palatella as creative director of the brand’s women’s and men’s collections. Palatella’s know-how and skills with knitwear caught the eye of the late Alfredo Canessa, who founded Malo — at the time called Malo Tricot — in 1972. Canessa selected Palatella to work on Malo’s women’s line in the Nineties. Canessa later produced the designer’s namesake brand and bought the Gentry Portofino brand designed by Palatella. Canessa sold Malo and Gentry Portofino to IT Holding in 1999.
