At ermenegildo zegna evolution is making its way. and it\'s not stefano pilati, future artistic director of the brand, sat on the front row, who would say otherwise. as a transition, the collection demonstrates the savoir-faire and craftsmanship of the italian fashion house, with a single watchword : innovation. suits, tapered and immaculate, are available in silk, an unusual material for winter. spazzolino, the brushed alpaca fabric, emblematic of the house, is treated differently for a astrakhan trompe l\'oil effect on fluid coats. knitwear, a cashmere granite version is in the favourite colour of the season, gray. there is nothing provoking at zegna, everything is in the subtlety and detail of an always elegant wardrobe. music free of right / bandit &nikit 2012 interview anna zegna : this is a very new and interesting collection for zegna, because we\'ve started to use an incredible material for winter, which is silk. no one has worked with silk in winter. it\'s used as if it were cashmere or wool, and it\'s a carded silk which comes in a series of stripes that are either very clean or like in this case, worked on a base that is already three-dimensional. another material that was used is the spazzolino. this year in the collection, you can see a lot of outerwear pieces that are very graphic. this is a man who uses a wardrobe by creating layers, so the luxury outerwear really becomes, not a complement but an essential part of his wardrobe. these pieces which are either like jackets which come in leather, or new in silk or in a very technical wool, become fluid coats or the same spazzolino which has undergone treatment to become astrakhan. so this is exactly the same fabric but it\'s done in two completely different ways. it\'s very interesting to also see the versatility of materials once we get to know them and we work on them with this spirit of innovation.
