Ermenegildo Zegna to host special fashion show in Sydney
Apr '13
Ermenegildo Zegna will host a very special fashion show in Sydney, in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Ermenegildo Zegna Extrafine Wool Trophy, an annual event which has awarded and rewarded the Australian woolgrowers’ commitment to quality since 1963.

As part of the celebration, Zegna will unveil a unique, dedicated capsule collection featuring an exclusive new fabric, Trofeo Natural Comfort in pied-de-poule pattern, which is inspired by the styles produced by the Lanificio in the 1960s made from the winning wools from the first Wool Trophies.

This elegant reinterpretation features a personalized celebratory hallmark on the selvedge that distinguishes the Ermenegildo Zegna Wool Trophy 50th 1963 to 2013 Anniversary collection.

Fine and Super-fine Australian wool are fundamental materials within Ermenegildo Zegna’s most prestigious fabrics, and their importance is celebrated through Zegna’s efforts to evolve the fineness and excellence of the multi-faceted fiber.

Under a backdrop of the Zegna anniversary event, the celebratory wardrobe features special-edition apparel, coordinates and accessories as well as printed fabrics inspired by aboriginal “dot art” paintings. These Aboriginal prints, which are available in two patterns, pay tribute to the Australian aboriginal culture and form an important part of the collection.

The complete Ermenegildo Zegna Fall/Winter 2013 collection underscores the visionary vein of fashion to stylishly reinterpret classic looks from the past in an innovative, contemporary manner that unites elegance with luxurious practicality.

From the graphic lines of impeccable pinstripes to the “sportified” accents infused into the more formal garments, the palette is filled with shades of grey that conjure images of a new industrial revolution, brightened by flashes of white and deep green.

Double-breasted and elongated suits are worn with immaculate shirts with refined collars and matching cummerbunds that raise the waistline. Knitwear favors turtlenecks, gilets and cardigans with mixes of micro fantasies and sumptuous “granite effect”. Padded fencer bodices in wool, nappa and silk add style and a touch of surprise. 

In powerful display of aesthetics and design and bearing the Ermenegildo Zegna 50th Wool Trophy 1963 – 2013 Anniversary mark, the majestic capsule collection is a testimony to the inherent beauty and wearability of these noble, superfine Australian wools.
