The spirit of the Zegna group stands in the very centre of the Ermenegildo Zegna collection. Here, we have a representation of solid benchmarks, grown with tradition and fashion techniques. Here, we have the desire to amalgamate occasions suited for the summer and spring seasons ahead. Here, we have innovation through ideas.
From tailored blazers to sports jackets, light knitwear to cotton shirts, the Ermenegildo Zegna collection is about men dressing to suit an astute amount of taste. This collection is exploring the bolder side of fashion, with unconventional colour combinations and mismatches in patterns, fabrics and textures. In a sense, this collection is thinking outside of the box.
If we look at the way the suits are cut – in the New High Performance manner – it gives a twisted affect. The yarn is tangled and gives the fabric a resistance, a natural elasticity that becomes resilient in its own right. Clothes are not just something we put on our back, they become, when worn and thought of correctly, part of us.
The Crossover 600 jacket is a sheer example of this: linen, silk and wool melding together to have a fabric that is characterised by three features: lightness, resistance and a modern 3D effect. The jacket, like the other features of the Ermenegildo Zegna collection is a statement, a way to communicate who we are and what we think about fashion.
It goes on. ZegnaSilk, one of the many trademarks of the Zegna group, is featured and enhances brightness and softness. It has a relaxed kind of chicness making it perfect for casual events but also has that ultra tactile effect that suits, perhaps, more formal engagements.
With a blend of formal and relaxed attires, the Ermenegildo Zegna collection is aiming for universal perfection. The evidence is in the colours and the fabrics, acutely picked and handled with their passionate, never tiring hands.
