D ancer, bar­tender, il­lu­sion­ist, som­me­lier, art dealer, biker, gui­tarist, chef and edi­tor. Th­ese are the di­verse in­car­na­tions that the new Be­spoke Shoe Col­lec­tion from Ermenegildo Zegna is mod­elled on.

Artis­tic direc­tor Alessan­dro Sar­tori’s first project with the Ital­ian menswear strong­hold steps out with the brand in a new di­rec­tion, of­fer­ing nine in­cred­i­ble ex­am­ples of shoe­mak­ing craft for the first time.

Exc lus i ve ly avail­able at Zegna’s New Bond Street Global Store in Lon­don, the col­lec­tion is a cel­e­bra­tion of skilled ar­ti­sanry and mod­ern de­sign. For Sar­tori, each shoe is in­spired by a close friend, re­sult­ing in a col­lec­tion that show­cases the mul­ti­ple facets of the new Zegna man and cel­e­brates the beauty of true craft­man­ship.

In serendip­i­tous agree­ment, the sole choice of crafts­men from both Sar­tori and Group CEO Gildo Zegna was the renowned Bri­tish shoe­maker duo, Gaziano & Gir­ling. The tal­ented pair re­flect Zegna’s her­itage of in­no­va­tion and ver­sa­til­ity, turn­ing Sar­tori’s cre­ative dreams into hand­crafted re­al­ity. Spoilt for choice be­tween the Medal­lion Ox­ford, Dou­ble Monk, Jodhpur, Gus­set Shoe, Laced Ca­sual, Derby Style or Punched Ca­sual, ev­ery pair is a tri­umph of mod­ern cre­ativ­ity and skilled hand­i­work. Each will take up to six months to cre­ate from scratch, with an in­dul­gent se­lec­tion of trims, satin laces and other fin­ish­ing de­tails to make them truly your own. The be­spoke process is a mile­stone of per­son­alised style and lux­ury, which is ex­actly where the el­e­gant jour­ney of a so­phis­ti­cated and worldly new Zegna man should be­gin. www. zegna.com •
