HIM Co Group
We offer incomparable expertise honed over the course of nearly 60 years by managing premium licensees and simultaneously incorporating best-in-class facilities for the direct production of apparel, footwear, knitwear and leather goods.
Thanks to an ever-more dynamic and experienced in-house team, this exceptional asset has come to distinguish HIM as a major partner for established brands and emerging talents alike, focused on women’s ready-to-wear and footwear.
HIM oversees multiple aspects of the business, from manufacturing and design, to distribution and sales, leading all operations from the downtown Milan offices and showcasing the group’s partner brands at the group’ s international showrooms in Milan, Paris and New York.
At the core of every product and project released by HIM there is a quintessentially Italian commitment to unmatched creativity and quality, aligned with the fast-paced needs of the international market.
“Excellence, speed and consistency are our guiding principles, keeping us relevant in our high-tech modern world, responsive to the ever-evolving needs of our partner brands, and in concert with the expectations of the end customer.”
We value progress, research, and optimization to help drive our vision forward. This enables us to co-create a clear, authentic expression of each brand with which we partner.
Our manufacturing expertise has garnered us great respect and credibility in the fashion industry. Over the years we have collaborated with such world-class designers as Helmut Lang, Jean Paul Gaultier, Viktor&Rolf and Alexander McQueen.
Today we are focused on building innovative, 360-degree collaborations through which we are able to guarantee each client company both state-of-the-art production quality and a substantial supply organization that combines textile and material sourcing, worldwide distribution and rigorous on-time deliveries.
We are also passionate about our company’s ethical mission and social responsibility, exemplified by the launch of the fresh, international label F_WD, which is grounded in sustainability and respect for the planet.
