Formal Wear Made Approachable & Youthful
By Marcellous L. JONES
Milan, Italy – The new Spring/Summer 2014 Z. Zegna collection takes formal wear and downplays it into a more approachable manner that is more suitable to the younger Zegna man’s style and needs. Deep purples, jade and black open the forum. The slacks are generously cut. Some are worn with the new signature pattern that has been placed in the leather the sleek black jacket worn by Korean model Sung. From there have enormous amounts of jacquard hitting the catwalk. It has been used in the creation of not only suits, but also in the creation of general slacks.
As the collection quickly evolves, we see incredibly smooth looks in more pastel citron, lilac, pink and blush. These colours are used with the shorts and looks composed of shirts in jacquard.
The innovation in the collection comes in the form of the shirts. The shirts are slip over and have no buttons. One model takes its form with oriental cut. It may be perceived as a collar-inspired from closing a bath rob. They are perfect for casually chic looks when worn with just trousers or jeans and with sandals. However, they remain extremely appropriate for more formal attire like tuxedos when worn with the huge elastic waistbands. The shoulders of these shirts are cut and STRUCTURED exactly like those found in the blazers.
