Ermenegildo Zegna, the premium Italian brand of menswear, has already put out very protective and expensive overcoats with a good design, using technical materials like Thermore. It is now going for a sportier look in its branded clothing as well as in its footwear, trying to be more original than cross-over brands like Moncler. The latest Ermenegildo Zegna XXX collection, designed by Alessandro Sartori, was presented at Milan's train station, Stazione Milano Centrale, on Jan. 12. Press reports said the collection brings athleisure to the “high society.” It included bulbous quilted leather leotards and felted wool hooded après-ski tops combined with fitted jogging bottoms with visible seams, as well as short technical parkas worn with quilted pants encircled by a cord. The collection is not only inspired by the athleisure trend, but also by the eco-friendly movement. Around 25 percent of the collection (nylon, cashmere and wool) was recycled from Zegna factory offcuts. More in SGI Europe.
