Zegna Spring 2014 Menswear Shapes Carefree Classics
Former YSL Creative Director Stefano Pilati transfers his love for dark, deep hues to Ermenegildo Zegna Spring 2014. Although there’s similarities between his past and present work, Pilati pumps up the quality for his kickoff collection with the brand. The handmade, couture pieces are truly one of a kind, making the strong silhouette even more striking for spring menswear at Ermenegildo Zegna. A looser look than other mens collections we’ve seen this season, Pilati still provides power with the full fabrics that certainly speaks to our guy.
Slicked back hair and rolled up sleeves channels a Paul Newman look, that’ll transform any boy into a mysterious man. The collection circles mostly around earth tones, making the collection even mores versatile. Ermenegildo Zegna offers a palette of blue, tan, and brown with touches of olive green and burgundy. Shifting away from the solids, the patterns jump from the folded scarves to jackets to button downs. The designer ultimately mixes them up by offering it in an array of hues. Less trendy and more classic, Pilati provides pieces that could easily be passed from one generation to the next. Who knows, these looks are so sharp, your gal make borrow a few !
Long, swinging coats create movement without swallowing the men in fabric. Pilati achieves this by tightening the waist with the Norfolk jackets, or fastening the top button on larger coats and revealing layers of cardigans and button downs. Switching to shorts, they give a lax meets lux attitude, especially with the colorblocked beach towels. Whether at a business meeting or the boardwalk, Pilati’s man will look dapper at both destinations.
