Z Zegna’s Fall 2019 Menswear line is the epitome of “fashion-meets-technology.” At first glance, they might seem ordinary clothes—stylish and sophisticated at that—but upon further inspection, these are actually garments that double as useful gadgets. Most of the time, their technology helps the wearer, such as helping increase the insulation for better warmth during winter or bringing in more air in the sneakers for the feet to breathe better. They’re literally clothes that help one look and feel good, but they’re also incredibly beautiful and interesting. For one thing, even with the different types of garments at hand, the same sleek and streamlined look was spread out throughout the collection. Even a pair of puffer pants didn’t look mascot-like. A noteworthy number was that of a puffer-vested navy blue ski ensemble with a strategically placed pale tan panel that beautifully offset the outfit entirely. Another was a monochrome green set with a buttery leather jacket and a well-cut pair of wool trousers. It’s through their clean lines and refined tailoring that all the other technological flurries don’t seem to matter anymore!
