Zegna Goes Prints – Exclusive Preview SS 2013

Zegna goes prints – exclusive preview SS 2013

In a few moments Ermenegildo Zegna are going to carry out the S/S13 collection on the runway, available for anyone not in Milan to see through a live streaming as well. It was the new interpretation of silk and the longing for couture that encompassed the collection, when The Blogazine got an exclusive preview in the Zegna atelier.

High-waist slim trousers and sober saddle shoulder jackets underline the well-defined and confident silhouette of the SS13 man by Zegna. The Zegna Silk project is an important part of the summer collection, as well as the banana tree leaves and all over tropical inspired prints. The colours range from classic ivory to blue and gray, accentuated by hues of teal, tabacco and red. The fine silk fabrics have an alternative in the Irish linen, and the look is completed with the moccasins in leather or silk, luggage inspired bags, silk ties and printed scarves.

Even with the sportier part of the collection Zegna manages to keep their elegance, and it’s a laid back but self-assured man we will see at the catwalk today, balancing with fine Italian tailoring and eccentricity.
