This year marks the famed menswear brand’s 110th anniversary, quite a remarkable feat if you think about it. Artistic Director Alessandro Sartori goes on to convey the core Italian DNA and sensibility of the Zegna empire and aesthetic, whilst honouring the challenging times we’re in. With the digital and live immersed ‘show’, Zegna considered what might be “the new normal” — there’s a reach for a deeper calling and a more sustainable attitude to fashion.
The colours were spot on: clays, cowslip yellows, pinks, dove greys, river stone blues, carabus greens and slate blacks – and the combinations made for a beautiful stylistic exercise. Lightweight yet firm fabrics, dropped shoulders, elongated wide liquid trousers made for a relaxed, nonchalant silhouette. There was a lot of poetry added to the Zegna functionality and underlying Sartori’s love of hybrid category clothing. He puts outerwear in shirting fabrics, and vice versa, giving us more freedom and versatility.
Here’s our top 7 picks of the show:
1. The deep colour of this wide legged two-piece suit is spectacular and quite unique. Worn with a loose-necked polo in a lighter blue-green, the relaxed yet masculine shape and silhouette of the suit is ever more accentuated.
