Ermenegildo Zegna Couture was first instituted by Stefano Pilati, when he took the reigns of the brand as head designer in 2012. What this meant for the brand was an innovative way to bring couture — more commonly associated with women’s fashion — to men, imbibing the clothes with a level of tailoring and creativity that takes them to the next level.
For his last collection, Pilati showcases a truly fearless style; extensive jacquard patterns on coats, bomber jackets and even fedoras, coupled with three dimensional hand embroideries on sweaters. Everything is in a palette of black and muted grey, tinged with navy and violet, with embellishments worth of any couture show.
