ZZegna launches F/W 2014-15 collection
Jan '14
A Mod undercurrent pervades the ZZegna Fall/Winter 2014-15 collection where sartorial expertise becomes a high-impact expression of studied individuality, upbeat energy and relaxed elegance for a younger generation.

Edgy over rebellious. A nod at a social movement that in the Sixties planted the seed of change, spawning an unfaltering fashion statement that ZZegna revisits through the art of tailoring, highlighted by taut and sleek silhouettes imbued with a youthful spin.

An imaginative and desirable formula to stand out from the pack-dry and slim-cut suits, high-cuffed cropped pants, generous pockets, sleeve garters and mock knitwear alternated by fitted shirts with tie bars.

The mood is graphic, dictated by a recurring and exclusive interpretation of lines - pinstripes, chalk stripes, large candy bands or thin ones that intersect to form a tight grid. Geometries that include blurry mohair tartans and that with millimetrical precision cut across natural-shouldered jackets, car coats, roomy outerwear and snug trousers.

At times, striped motifs in three different sizes are mismatched to modern effect in tonal color combinations.

At others, boldly colored bands are  splashed down the front of a boxy coat creating a vivid contrast against a palette anchored on tradition with an abundance of navy blue, acorn brown and smoky grey, accentuated by burgundy, mustard yellow and bottle green reminiscent of college uniforms. 

The accessories further elevate the aura of irreverence and personality via monk shoes with chunky rubber soles, hand perforated tips and combos of hammered and brushed calfskins.

Versatile work and weekend bags are fashioned from macro-grain calfskin, brushed leathers and felted wools.

A collection of relevant standalone pieces that interprets the past with wit and bravado, a blend of informal modernism.
