Zegna can’t be ac­cused of lack­ing in win­ter prac­ti­cal­ity. Beanie hats and pec­cary gloves were sta­ple ac­ces­sories. Quilt­ing and pad­ding were popular for out­er­wear, worn with rub­ber- soled footwear ideal for win­ter walks. The la­bel’s sig­na­ture tai­lor­ing was es­pe­cially ev­i­dent in a dark blue wool coat worn over a match­ing ribbed cash­mere sweater with grey sin­gle- pleat trousers. Later, we saw a gor­geous dou­ble- breasted blue pea coat in Shet­land twill and cash­mere check with match­ing cash­mere scarf. Girl­friends should con­sider steal­ing the to- die- for belted cardi­gans. Out­er­wear sil­hou­ettes var­ied, with blousons, capes, coats with large hoods and slim­ming field jack­ets. Suit pieces were worn with polo shirts or Ja­panese seer­sucker shirts. A neatly co­or­di­nated col­lec­tion, this was or­gan­ised into log­i­cal de­vel­op­ments of colour, fab­ric and sil­hou­ettes with enough trend to keep it re­fresh­ing.
