Z ZEGNA SS2018 Collection Sets Sail For A Vintage Regatta
Thirty-six years of performance, fueled by a fascination for the open seas. Where the wind can turn from friend to foe, and the breaking crest of every wave longs to tell its story. In a reality where speed is measured by knots and every breath is taken with anticipation, Zegna has accompanied some of the most elegant and challenging Regattas since the early 1980s.
Now, Z ZEGNA blends a vintage regatta spirit with performance-enhanced garments to create a new seasonal wardrobe as suitable for the deck as for the city. The eclectic mix of contemporary Italian style and active-wear emphasize uninhibited motion. As navy and deep ocean blue are paired with matt black and aluminum greys, subtle whites and vibrant maritime-inspired accents in yellow and orange are boldly decisive.
Silhouettes are sharp yet easy, sportswear layering plays with innovative tailoring, cutting edge details and an ample use of nautical-inspired chromatic graphics encourage a sense of freedom and the thirst for adventure. The vintage regatta influence extends into the accessories, featuring a selection of TECHMERINO™ wave sneakers and rubberized leather boots paired with colorful boat bags in tridimensional sailing fabric, water-repellent TECHMERINO™ backpacks, ocean hoods and soft-shell sailing hats.
To ensure optimal performance in dynamic situations, the TECHMERINO™ collection sports naturally-enhanced pure Australian merino wool garments certified by The Woolmark Company. The incredible benefits of this noble fiber help to ensure unrestrained freedom and breathability even on hot summer days. Innovation in TECHMERINO™ tailoring debuts with TECHMERINO™ WASH & GO suiting which is domestically machine washable while maintaining the same performance with a natural casual fit.
In parallel, Z ZEGNA has created an exclusive new Capsule Collection inspired by the Maserati Multi70 led by renowned Italian skipper, Giovanni Soldini. The new Z ZEGNA Maserati SS18 Capsule Collection replicates the exclusive outfits designed by Zegna for the Maserati Multi70 crew, underscoring its iconic, performance-driven expertise.
The Z ZEGNA SS18 collection, with its dynamic style attitude, is the perfect evolution to the brand’s “Tailoring meets Performance” state of mind.
