The origin of the symbol

The studio

The triangle is the symbol which was born with humankind and symbolizes gender, creativity, harmony, parts, light, union and subjectivity. But its meaning changes if you turn it upwards. This geometrical symbol represents the Man, unlike the downwards triangle which, since the Paleolithic, represents the womb of the regenerative Great Goddess.


Through an in-depth study of symbolism, Lorenzo Zani created the new downwards “V” shape. With this stylistic transformation in tailoring world, the man takes the male territory back, giving it a defined and leading identity.


Necktie development across time

The most ancient version of neckties was found in the mausoleum of the first Chinese emperor, Shih Huang Ti, who was buried in 210 BC. But the success of this accessory starts in 1600. The first to use it were the Croatian soldiers during the Thirty Years War (1618-1648). In 1650, at the court of King Louis XIV, men started to flaunt it with rivalry and elegance. Since then the trend started to spread and passed through centuries and continents, taking new shapes.

But only since 1926, thanks to Jesse Langsdorf, a New York tie maker, the necktie took the triangle shape, now outdated. The history behind each object is essential to understand completely its meaning. In 2015, Lorenzo Zani’s tailoring revolution hides a secret: your necktie has always had a female symbolic meaning.

About us

Lorenzo Zani
Tailoring brand Lorenzo Zani was born in 2013 from a bizarre idea of Mr. Lorenzo Zani. The concept of his revolutionary shape sprout while he was watching the movie “The Da Vinci Code”. During one of the most significant scenes, Lorenzo Zani discovered that in the “Cenacolo” painting there were some hidden symbols. What stroke him more concerns the free “V”-shaped spaces between Mary Magdalene and Jesus. This “V” represents the woman in Christian symbolism. Stroke by this hidden symbol, Zani immediately connected it with one of the male symbol objects, the necktie. In fact, the current and traditional shape of neckties end is a downwards triangle, that’s to say: it contains a female symbol. Zani asked himself why a typical male object expresses a female symbol? After some researches he discovered that nobody over centuries had never noticed such a significant detail. Then, he started to draw new neckties’ shapes which symbolizes male sex, the man, later certified by WIPO at n.79.837. Another element that strengthened Zani’s commitment was the coincidence of his birthday with the World’s Necktie Day: 18th October.
