The future and the present collide with man at the centre. New constructions emerge, without forgetting the beauty of past. Design inspired not only by aesthetics but also by the ultimate perfection вЂ“ the male form.
A contemporary wardrobe blueprint is de-constructed and re-engineered, exposing the technical framework. Soft yet mechanically tailored silhouettes envision the new man in a palette of urban greys, brick, chocolate and denim blue.
Fabrics are pure and luxe; double-faced wools, punch needle alpaca, angora, raw denim, heavy suede, leather, treated shearling and hand-knits are all playfully mixed yet always masculine, while felt jersey in blends of alpaca and wool are at the axis.
Shape and silhouette are re-built enhancing the elegance of the male form.Sartorial jackets with shirt construction and edge-cut crew necks respond to the contours of the body. Trousers are worn long and gathered at the ankles, with contrasting short bombers and long overcoats.
Iconic designs for winter are the вЂTechno JacketвЂ™, вЂPatch JacketвЂ™ and вЂGrid KnitвЂ™. Articulated pattern blocking, вЂtromp lвЂ™oeilвЂ™ panelling and reverse taped raw-edged seams, rediscover the essence of structure.
Techno-tailoring is manifested in the Z Zegna manвЂ™s accessories; oversize satchels and voyager bags, Derby shoes with no laces and jersey gloves, paired with leather and fabric edge cut belts.
вЂњThe re-structured man takes centre stage, uniting design, function, feel and styleвЂќ Alessandro Sartori: Z Zegna Creative Director.
