Last Sunday Moritz and I drove down to Milan for less than 24 hours to attend the Z Zegna Spring / Summer 2016 presentation at their HQ. We arrived somewhen after noon, quickly dropped off our luggage at the hotel and went to the Re-See of the Ermenegildo Zegna Couture S/S 2016 collection at their showroom.
The collection Stefano Pilati envisioned is built up in a very special way as it starts out with a couple of all black looks, before cracking up in different colors, nothing bold though, only pastels or very soft colors and ending with all white looks. The cuts are very loose, airy and the leg is definitively getting wider next year.
After a small brake, strolling through the Navigli area and having a very late delicious Italian lunch as well as a change of outfits we found ourselves at the Ermenegildo Zegna HQ again where the venue for the Z Zegna presentation was set.
Completely different from the one we had seen before, Z Zegna, the younger, more sporty line, showed a great collection for Spring / Summer 2016 under the title «City to Surf». Shorts, Pirates of the Caribbean-inspired shirts, a lot of modern, functional fabrics, such as treated PVC/vinyl coats and jackets, as well as the colors grey, orange, blue and white dominated the collection. All in all a solid collection with a couple of desirable pieces.
