Z Zegna AW15: Technology and tailoring intertwined

First unveiled during the Milan Fashion Week, the second season collection for the brand under its new identity is designed to attract the interest of men with different styles, despite the brand’s original philosophy of merging tailoring with sportswear.

The younger and more modern line of Ermenegildo Zegna showcases a juxtaposition of colours, patterns, fabrics and technological innovations in the 15 looks of the new collection, resulting in an international expression of style, according to the brand.
