Ermenegildo Zegna Maserati Capsule Collection for Fall Winter 2018

Unparalleled automotive and sartorial excellence is what results from a partnership between two leading brands of Italian Style

Jun 08, 2018 | By Jonathan Ho

What happens when two brands, emblematic of Italian design and manufacturing excellence join forces? Not only is it a match-made in Heaven but the joining of Ermenegildo Zegna and Maserati is not just representative of “made in Italy” craftsmanship but also, the ultimate gentleman’s lifestyle.

Inked back in 2013 between Gildo Zegna, CEO of Ermenegildo Zegna Group and Sergio Marchionne, CEO of Fiat Group, the long-term partnership between the two brands launched the Maserati Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zegna Limited Edition; reinterpreted with Zegna-designed colors and materials including luxurious yet resilient fabrics produced at the historic Lanificio Zegna wool mill in Trivero, Italy.

Heavenly match, Made in Italy: Zegna x Maserati

Zegna’s innovative Mulberry silk has a thickness of 10 microns and is produced much in the same vein as the Italian tailoring brand’s wool – the raw material is dyed and then twisted into 6-strad manner for hard wearing seats and then a lighter 4-strand weave is used for the jersey lining the roof, door panels and other low-wear locations.

Once the silk is warped and woven, the fabric is further treated according to automotive specifications. What results is not just an exclusive Ermenegildo Zegna Silk Edition but also a highly customised bespoke  Maserati Quattroporte limited edition with comfort and elegance. Made for discerning gentleman drivers and connoisseurs of fine details.

 

In 2014, the two arbiters of exquisite Italian style delivered a complete Zegna and Maserati luxury experience with an elegant Owner’s Collection in celebration of Maserati’s centennial anniversary; an exclusive gift for 100 owners and perfect encapsulation if Italian heritage, craftsmanship and elegance – grained calf leather and the famed Zegna Silk returned to match both the owner’s Maserati Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zegna Limited Edition and his wardrobe thanks to a special Ermenegildo Zegna Maserati Capsule 2014 Spring Summer Collection. Sneakers and jackets, inspired by the Limited Edition car formed the capsule collection which retailed at Zegna boutiques worldwide.

In 2015, Maserati presented a new Ermenegildo Zegna trim package that would be available on all Maserati Quattroporte, Ghibli and Levante models, all dressed in a Zegna-designed interior created by Zegna’s master artisans – pure silk fabric for ultimate style and exclusivity.

In 2016, featuring leather goods, luxury clothing and personal accessories designed to reflect their craftsmanship and elegance – a refined mixture of premium leather, fine silk and cotton fabrics with the iconic herringbone or chevron pattern, characterised the exclusive  Ermenegildo Zegna Maserati Capsule collection.

Last year, Maserati presented a special Levante featuring an exclusive new Zegna silk fabric, exclusive for Maserati. The showcar’s cockpit was completely dressed with the special silk fabric complete with woven “Chevron” motif in a new beige and soft-touch effect. Contrasted with full black premium leather uppers on the dashboard, the new Maserati Levante Ermenegildo Zegna edition was a 36- degree to Italian luxury and artisanal crafts.
