Ermenegildo Zegna showcases its Autumn-Winter 2014 collection
January 26, 2014: Ermenegildo Zegna explores the beauty and majesty of nature for its Fall-Winter 2014 collection.
Building on spring-summer’s union of industry and savoir-faire, the new autumn-winter collection celebrates natural fibers, exploring and validating Zegna’s patrimonial, historical and technological identity. Stefano Pilati merges the formal with sportswear; dark tones with light; nuances to graphisms; textures to surfaces; functionality to frivolity; natural to synthetic.
Fine wool, noble cashmere and precious vicuña are worn with traditional British hunting covert fabrics; Japanese nylon; silk or wool woven with Cordura or Kevlar. Sporty looks become elegant, formal is presented in layers of precious fabrics, defining a silhouette that seems identical yet performs in opposite ways according to construction. Artisan-made boots are modernised by the use of thermal bonding techniques. Patinated skins finish the look of an urban explorer; whose original style, classic and unregulated in its formality, emphasises the Zegna identity.
