Never heard of Zanella? If Armando DiNatale (Zanella’s owner, ceo, president and creative director) has anything to do with it, that’s all about to change. The nearly 50-year-old Italian company, best known for its luxury menswear, pants in particular, has been slowly expanding its women’s line for a decade without the benefit of advertising and promotion. Now, however, it’s primed to become a household name, and the firm spared no expense for its fall presentation at its Fifth Avenue showroom. After all, Carmen Kass, Stella Tennant, and Bridget Hall don’t come cheap if your name’s not Marc Jacobs.
The collection, which was predominantly daytime, revealed its haberdashery origins with tailored overcoats, suits, skirts and trousers in traditional wool herringbone, glen plaid and houndstooth. Despite some conservative, even matronly elements, there were several chic highs, including a beautifully-cut belted trench in navy, as well as a series of lavender knits. The only major misstep was a group of metallics at the end — a hooded sweater with a touch of sparkle isn’t the most stylish way to go casual for evening.

‘We didn't know how relevant our film would be when we were making it. When Steven [Rogers] wrote the script Trump wasn't president, class divide in America wasn't as evident as it is now, though it was present. The Time’s Up movement hadn't began and the way we look at women and treat women who speak out — thankfully that is something that seems to have shifted in the last year. I think we just need to continue making art that provokes the conversation and do what we can,’ said ‘I, Tonya’ actress @margotrobbie.

Gemma Arterton is joined on the @bafta’s red carpet by Eileen Pullen and Gwen Davis, the two women who started the fight for the pay-gap. ‘They represent a normal person speaking out for what is right. Speak out, we will listen and anyone can speak out,’ said Arterton. #eebaftas #timesup #wwdeye (📸: David Fisher)
