For fall, Marco Zanini continued to deliver timeless designs, crafted from upscale materials and injected with sophisticated beauty. Some designs were shown on a male model, anticipating a future expansion into men’s wear.
The look: Revisited wardrobe classics exuding a sometimes mannish, always discreet allure.
Quote of note: “Having my own brand, I have the privilege of not having to create a mood board to present my collections to the managers,” said Zanini, who previously served as creative director for brands like Schiaparelli and Rochas. “I can follow my instinct, designing only what I like and I learnt in these 20 years in fashion.”
Standout pieces: Luxurious cashmere coats in chic powdery tones; cotton voile skirts and blouses embroidered by hand in Switzerland; mannish utilitarian jackets worn with silk pants; cozy knit dresses showing fluid silhouettes; roomy silk trousers in delicate shirting stripes in blue and pale tones.
The takeway: Investment pieces, to buy once and wear forever, are becoming more and more relevant. Zanini succeeded in making classics look interesting and alluring through the exquisite details.
