Sartorial flavour for ZZegna gentleman this A/W
Nov '12
The ZZegna Autumn Winter 2012 collection is rooted in the classics with traditional textiles thanks to a wealthy archive of fabrics; this season the collection presents a sartorial flavour. Though the fabrics are traditional, the attitude is young. 

The collection is performance driven, combining innovative fabrics with designed trimmings and hardware and accents of statement colour. 
Elegance, function and comfort are united to create a new look, a modern exploration of the term ‘Gentleman’.
There is a return to the art of dressing, which collides with today’s inner city style. A desire to communicate self belief and empowerment sees the suit with a new iconic status. Jackets are modernized with new streamlined proportions and made lighter with softer constructions. 
SILHOUETTE: The stylization and elongation of the 1920’s inspired the sartorial lines of the suits, whilst the concept of the commuter and working man of the 50’s inspired the outerwear and sportswear silhouettes.
PALETTE: The main colors are simple, consistent with a collection that is designed to last:
navy blue, charcoal, ebony, khaki, burgundy. Within these deep tones explode brilliant graphic effects of electric blue, sapphire, red-orange, and emerald, often highlighted by a lively play on contrasts.
FABRICS: techno satin, high performance jersey, tweeds, lambs-wool, stretch wool and exceptionally full-bodied mohair.
