Architecture, space, the city, nature and science, these are the themes visited by Stefano Pilati in past Ermenegildo Zegna Couture collections.
For the Autumn Winter 2015/16 the ‘luxury of choice’ is eco-solidarity.
The eco-sustainability theme is not new to Gruppo Zegna, who have, over generations, been consistent in their commitment to social and environmental activities. Through constant research into the quality of their products with an absolute respect for the environment, the group continues to maintain leadership in the development and production yarn, cloth and garments made from natural fibers.
The uniform of an Eco-leader is the key inspiration of Stefano Pilati for this collection, seen through the use of noble fibers from the house, as well as original archive Harris Tweeds, selected for their authenticity and for their “recyclability”.
A sense of environmental “protection” is perceived not only in the garments and accessories but also in the attitude.
An attitude of ‘action’, in ‘the field’, opens the show, interspersed with the pure poetry of the broken suit in both velvet or corduroy, before taking a more urban turn for the second part.
Utilitarian “eco-leaders” uniforms are translated in jackets with subtly and softly sculpted details, where pockets are pleated or gathered, worn with tailored pants either elasticated at the bottom or conceived multifunctional.
Shoes and boots are covered by protection elements, while hybrid bags are sporty and luxurious.
All to define a new “urban uniform” with a leisure flavor.
Ermenegildo Zegna is industry, business, luxury, but also protection, sensibility and poetry.
