Characterised by handcrafted opulent detailing and exclusive fabrics, Ermenegildo Zegna Couture manifests Alessandro Sartori’s vision of the contemporary metropolitan wardrobe. Through the Summer 2019 Collection “Weightlessness”, Sartori continues to harmonise performance and speed of sports with Zegna’s exemplary couture tailoring.

Defying The Gravity of Convention

“Sartorial breeds stemming from the seamless morphing of opposite worlds.”

Zegna confronts the clash between technique and aesthetic more than ever before. Expect Sartori’s reimagination of the suit where shirts and jackets collide in hybrid forms and bombers to match with tailored high-waisted double pleat trousers. Parkas and knitwear in relaxed fits enjoyed the comfortable airy immateriality of airy materials. Moreover, sneakers and sandles with opanka constructions embellished with technical details and meshes of sport style, atop bold chunky soles.

To top it off, discover juxtapositioning of colours where shades of varying intensity are placed side by side, and the merging of fabric raw and refined in this Summer 2019 Collection that was debuted against the monumental yet immaterial backdrop of the Oscar Niemeyer building.

The collection, according to Sartori, is “a symbol of couture craft that is also the most personal and unexpected expression of Zegna”.
