Ermenegildo Zegna presented Spring/Summer 2013 collection at Milan Fashion Show. The rigor of the Italian sartorial tradition opens up to sophisticated possibilities that blur the line between eclecticism and eccentricity, expressed through a gamut of new fabrics.
A well-defined silhouette underscored by jackets with sober saddle shoulders, a higher waistline and wide lapels that favor a lean figure complemented by high-waist slim trousers with stitched pleats.
A confident yet comfortable construction, one that gives every man the power to exude an elegant allure, buoyed by an ample selection of fabrics that spotlights the summer offering of the Zegna Silk project.
A closet that mirrors a grown up and self-confident man who is familiar with the value of an impeccably tailored suit but who wants to indulge with gentle whiffs of eccentricity, like the all- over tropical-inspired prints that beckon from the details of shirts, linings and accessories. The color wheel spans from classic ivory and blue to cloud gray, as well as shades of tobacco, teal and red.
Beefy fabrics make the difference in the formal and cocktail attire, with suits and overcoats in silk taffeta, laser perforated double silks and shimmering shantung. A luxurious alternative is the solid Irish linen.
An overall rendition of the classics that draws liberally from women’s weaves and textures, reinterpreted with Zegna’s relentless knack to experiment that is extended as far as the shirt, amongst the most seductive ever in soft printed silk with a vintage feel, and to silk moulinè or twisted knitwear.
Summer, with its laid back pace, never sheds its elegant aura even with the sportier garments that draw from the couture tradition to become blousons, cabans and sport jackets made with nappa plongè, double layer cottons and high performing silks.
