The common track pant was the jumping off point for this space-odyssey-meets-athleticism story. Buff models stormed out in layered racer-back tanks, Perspex specs and injected-rubber platform brogues. Intriguing techno fabrics — such as nylon bonded mesh and waxed denim — added a clinical flavor. A new cousin to the luxury sweats was a voluminous pleated pant with a Capri length. When paired with blouson-shaped shirts and jackets, the silhouette had a 3-D aspect that would be hard to pull off for the average Joe, even the occasional adventurous Joe, too. While Italo Zucchelli likes to flirt with futurism, here the spaceship may have strayed too far outside of earth’s orbit.
