Men’s sartorial best

A fresh breath of Italian summer allure inspired by the pleasures of life permeates the Ermenegildo Zegna and Ermenegildo Zegna Couture PE17 collections.

A studied informality, typical of a man of substance, relentless admiration and enthusiasm, reminiscent of Italian savoir faire, emphasize a contemporary image that oozes personality and style. The relaxed summer rhythm blurs the severity of Ermenegildo Zegna’s tailoring tradition, opening up sophisticated possibilities expressed through languid silhouettes and underlined by long stretch jackets with soft and deconstructed lines, complete with high waist pants and without trainers.

The variety of fabrics pays tribute to Zegna’s historical and technological identity, ranging from seersucker, hopsack, ottoman and pure ethanin to silk, hemp, flax, silk and wool blends applied to the most casual outfits. Precious leather and suede, organic cotton and superfine wool are used to create sophisticated de-stitched caps and cabans, in addition to denim jackets, bombers and denim blazers.

The cinematographic palette looks back at the Italian atmosphere of the 1950s, with antique rose, tobacco, mauve, burgundy and shades of blue lined with languid accents of ivory white. Ermenegildo Zegna’s accessories enhance the collection’s summer allure. The exclusive brand leather fabric dominates shoes, shorts and weekend bags, while soft lined skirts add a casual touch to the season.

This wardrobe reflects an authentic Italian elegance for a man who is aware of the value of an impeccably cut dress but who is capable of indulging in delicate notes of eccentricity to define his unique style, enjoying the passions of life.
