Zegna's Winter 2019 collection is imaginative, diverse
January 14, 2019: Ermenegildo Zegna, the Italian luxury retail brand, showcased their XXX Winter 2019 Collection. The collection is an amalagamation of various textiles. Knit being one of the base layers, cashmere, paper and leather; slogans and metropolitan scenes are turned into bold visual abstractions either as prints or jacquards.
Under the slogan #UseTheExisting, the collection, supported by the Zegna textile division, is almost entirely made with exclusive wool, cashmere and nylon fabrics created with innovative processes from pre-existing sources. The result is responsible fabrications that are recycled as well as recyclable.
The exclusive fabrics give a dense, textural shimmer to a metropolitan palette of white, Felt, Commissar and Warsaw greys, Beluga black, Notte blue, khaki, Syberian green, lit by touches of Absinthe and Citrine quartz and amalgamated into fused compositions.
"Borders keep being narrowed throughout the world,” says Zegna Artistic Director Alessandro Sartori. “I felt the urge to advocate the power of openness and multiplicity through my own means as a fashion designer, expressing awareness and responsibility at every step of the creative process, from textile-making to devising new categories of clothing...In doing so, I keep perfecting my vision of the contemporary metropolitan wardrobe: an idea of tailoring for a cross-generation of global customers."
