Ermeneg ildo Zeg na
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.
