September 2022 Sales (LATEST)
It’s no surprise that creative director Alessandro Sartori chose Milano Centrale as his venue for his latest show. His Fall 2019 Menswear collection for Ermenegildo Zegna was all about a melting pot—a harmonious mix of different concepts and styles together. Milano Centrale, said to be the largest train station, is itself a melting pot of sorts as countless travelers meet here, as well as it’s become a shelter for refugee immigrants. But what was so diverse about this collection? For one thing, it was a hybrid of both traditional menswear tailoring—the bread and butter of the brand—and the urban streetwear. Case in point: a well-cut military green blazer was paired with what looked like a refined pair of cargo pants in a similar hue. The same goes for a khaki suit decorated with industrial pockets on the torso and worn with a navy blue buttoned-up shirt and black necktie. Here the industrial met the elegant, resulting in a collision of classic sensibilities with a more urban attitude. This might as well be the old-school sophistication that the younger millennial crowd will go gaga over come fall!
