Z ZEGNA Winter 2017 Collection

The Metropolitan Edge of A Vintage Ski-Inspired Attitude
Referencing the past with a vision of the future, vintage sport-inspired atmospheres accompany a seasonal wardrobe fashioned by performance.

Touting a late 70’s ski-inspired attitude with a metropolitan edge, the newest Z ZEGNA collection is energetic and contemporary while introducing a new styling lexicon.

In a special unveiling at Pitti Uomo 2017, Z ZEGNA debuts its new tailoring meets performance evolution.

  On the slopes and in the streets, the Techmerino total look takes a quintessential role this season where layering is key.

Ranging from Techmerino Jersey to luxurious Techmerino Silk, Z ZEGNA converges comfort and performance in an iconic throwback to the Ermenegildo Zegna Skiwear project of the 1970s.

The ultimate declaration of Techmerino excellence is manifested in the Icon Warmer Ski Suit with integrated heating  technology, while the colorful parade of 30 super lightweight sneakers made entirely in Techmerino complete the offer in style.

“To enhance the juxtaposition of tailoring and performance-wear, we created a new wardrobe that meets the active lifestyle of contemporary men while emphasizing a clean, linear and luxurious aesthetic” explained Alessandro Sartori, Artistic Director of Ermenegildo Zegna. 

  The choice to extend the use of Techmerino in new sophisticated combinations as a central element to the collection is a natural evolution of the Z ZEGNA philosophy, and pays tribute to the textile innovation Ermenegildo Zegna is known for.”

The savvy color palette – a foundation of matte black and almost-optical woolen white with asphalt grey mélange in combination with light camel, natural vicuna and pine leaf green interspersed with key accents of chili powder and mustard pays tribute to the sportswear-infused graphics of the 1970s.

It’s a new era of performance-backed tailoring, where technological underpinnings converge to deliver multifunctional attire for the modern adventurer.
