Ermenegildo Zegna presents Couture Summer 2019 collection
October 15, 2018: Menswear brand Ermenegildo Zegna presented their Summer Spring 2019 collection at the Mondadori headquarters. This remarkable piece of was a telling backdrop for a collection that marries sharpness and functional ease with a pervading sense of lightness.
Zegna’s Creative Director, Alessandro Sartori, keeps perfecting his vision of the contemporary metropolitan wardrobe, fusing the performance and speed of sports with the refinement, attention to detail and precious fabrications of couture tailoring. The silhouettes are capacious and airy, the mix of elements bold and personal.
Shirts and jackets collide in hybrid forms, with an oversize fit, experimental collars and playful double sleeves. Bombers and anoraks are matched with tailored high-waisted double pleat trousers, completely rewriting the template of the suit. The amalgamation of pale blue, Tropea pink, bow green, desert, sunflower yellow, mocha, nautical blue and loganberry red is painterly and individual.
"Creation for me always stems from a technical challenge. I am presenting shapes that are bold and voluminous, yet very light, in layers of meshes, wools, silks," says Mr. Sartori.
