TWINSET was established in Carpi (Modena) in 1987. The collections, which initially focused on sophisticated knitwear, expanded over the years to offer, through apparel and accessories, a total look for women and girls. Today, the timeless and romantically feminine taste of the brand is found in all of its lines: from Twinset Milano main collection to My Twin Twinset dedicated to denimwear and casualwear for women, U&B TWINSET for travel underwear and beachwear collection and the girl collections too.
The company was acquired by Carlyle Group through a leverage buy-out in July 2012. In July 2015, with the aim of further expanding the business internationally, the company underwent a managerial reorganization and equity restructuring, with the appointment of Alessandro Varisco as CEO. Today, the equity structure of the brand is 100% owned by Carlyle Group. Now has important office locations. Headquarter and production plant are in Carpi (Modena), in a futuristic architectural complex of 16 thousand square meters. Meanwhile, offices and showroom are in Milan in Piazza Oberdan 2A and Via Sirtori 32, both strategic downtown locations.
With the introduction of the new TWINSET MILANO logo, the brand owned by the Carlyle private equity fund has strengthened its development strategy by focusing on foreign markets and reconfirming its Italian identity through this link with Milan, the symbolic city of fashion and a point of reference for international style. TWINSET on 19/09/2019 launched PLEASEDONTBUY signed by TWINSET, the first brand to develop a rental business in the fashion world, starting from production 100% Made in Italy and reaching the final consumer.
