Italian company Fratelli Fila has acquired Valstar Srl, which controls the Valstar and Valstarino brands.

Founded in Milan in 1911, Valstar made a name for itself in the fashion business with its high-end fabric and leather outerwear pieces.

Valstar’s former chief executive officer Stefano Massa will continue to work with Fratelli Fila to develop the brands.

Biella-based Fratelli Fila acquired the Brooksfield fashion label in 2013 and currently distributes Gant in Italy.
