Longing for Couture in the Spring Summer Ermenegildo Zegna collection.
The rigor of traditional Italian tailoring opens the sophisticated possibility of an eclecticism that is almost eccentric in the choice of new fabric.The mirror of the atelier returns to being an essential counterpart. With it a continuous dialogue is established, with looks that alternate between control and aesthetic reinsurance.
Now the silhouette is defined, jackets with shoulders moderately sunken, raised waist and wide lapels, all in favor of a slender figure that comes complete with high-waisted pants with the fold stitched. A construction with no uncertainties, but comfortable – which has the power to give to every man elegant allure – supported by the wide choice of fabrics which stands out among the proposed summer project Zegna Silk.
The wardrobe is that of a confident grown man and that knows the value of well-made clothes but wants to enjoy amiable eccentricities, such as all-over prints to a tropical inspiration to peep into details here and there with shirts, linings, accessories.
Colors range from classic ivory and blue, gray clouds, many shades of tobacco, teal and red.
The fabrics make the difference in full-bodied formal and cocktail suits and coats in silk taffeta, silk dubbed with perforated and laser effects iridescent shantung. The luxury alternative, a solid Irish linen. It’s a reinterpretation of the classics that draw on the feminine textures reinterpreted with the unstoppable ability to experiment with Zegna, extending up to the shirts, the most seductive in soft silk printed vintage, yarn and knitted silk and twisted mouliné.
The summer, with its dilated time, will be elegantly experienced with garments that draw on even more sporting and result in the couture blouson setting, reefer jackets and tassels made of Illusion, dubbed cottons, technical silks. Accessories are the key to this impeccable look. One cannot go wrong wearing loafers with Heritage tassels and flexible loafers in soft leather lining and – most stunning – silk patterned small banana leaves.
The bags recapture the poise, they are geometric and are inspired by luggage of the past in the details of handles, corners and rivets.
Ties in knit and silk twill and printed scarves, with a little cache, will be the final touch.
The mirror approves.
