References to Fifties elegance echoed through the Ermenegildo Zegna Couture and Ermenegildo Zegna collections, which, following the exit of former creative director Stefano Pilati, were both developed by an in-house design team.
Rooted in a very sophisticated yet effortless style, the Couture range featured high-waisted pleated pants — sometimes embellished with cargo pockets for a more casual look — matched with a new buttonless shirt, as well as textured yet lightweight sweaters crafted from noble fibers. The chic outerwear spanned the gamut from fluid trenches and suede bombers to a precious leather jacket with covered buttons. Tailored pieces included suits with elongated double-breasted jackets worked from striped and checkered fabrics, while the classic tuxedo was matched with a knitted polo shirt.
Linen blends and seersucker took center stage in the Ermenegildo Zegna lineup, which was heavy on suits and separates worked in a light color palette of chic pinks, whites and tobacco. Denim, coming in deep indigo tones, was also used for a blazer worn with high-waisted, wide-leg pants, while super soft suede was cut into a trenchcoat layered over a blue linen casual shirt.
Everything reflected the brand’s signature Italian style but modernized through a smart, young take on the traditional sartorial approach.
