If I had to justify why I adore the Ermenegildo Zegna aesthetic so much, I would simply point here.

Check out the images from the Ermenegildo Zegna Spring/Summer 2013 menswear catwalk at Milan Fashion Week with some of my key notes on colours and influences below.

A dashing set of traditional, italian, chicly sartorial men with a underlying sporty summer influence strode down the almost 70s-esque mirrored Zegna catwalk in an luxiourious colour palette of classic ivory and blue to cloud gray, as well as shades of tobacco, tan, cobalt blue, navy, teal and burgandy. The Primary focus was on silk being the staple fabric for summer, used with cotton or more innovatively as laser perforated double silks found in their quintessential summer polos. Sport jackets were made with nappa plongè, double layer cottons and high performing silks, while accessories consisted of angular/geometric shaped hold-alls, flawless ties and of course those beautiful calfskin moccasins. Playful tropical printed silk shirts represented the epitome of a luxe italian summer and added just the right amount of eccentricity to keep the collection looking fresh and new, while overall the slimmer silhouette that graced the runway was brought to life by the impeccable standard of tailoring the brand is renowned for.

Colours, suiting and perforated wear! Oh my!!! The key strength of this collection is how brilliantly versatile it is for any age group. Bravo Zegna!
