THIS TIME IT’S PERSONAL
Ermenegildo Zegna’s new Bespoke Shoe Collection shows the many faces of the new Zegna man.
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
