Yip Yew Chong recre­ates Sin­ga­pore’s past, one mu­ral at a time

The first prod­ucts from Zegna’s wo­ven leather are fas­ci­nat­ing

SO­PHIS­TI­CATED DUDS

This is part of the wo­ven leather col­lec­tion with an added en­hance­ment: mi­cro-per­fo­ra­tions on the goat nappa that also cre­ate a sub­tle her­ring­bone pat­tern. A top pick, in our opin­ion.

MI­LANESE STYLE Brief­cases are the shields of the busi­ness ex­ec­u­tive, But they are also hefty in full leather. The Mi­lano Sin­gle Gus­set Brief­case is de­signed to suit the trendy ur­ban no­mad, with a soft con­struc­tion aided by the use of wo­ven leather.

STREET SEN­SI­BLE Zegna has been mak­ing footwear for nearly as long as they have been mak­ing suits. But this par­tic­u­lar sneaker has an in­no­va­tion in the Pelle Tes­suta: us­ing goat nappa leather strands and com­bin­ing that with a rub­ber cup­sole.

LONGLINE STYLE In or­der to cre­ate this weave, Ermenegildo Zegna had to weave strands of nappa leather that’s 1.6mm wide. The first small leather goods in­clude a wal­let de­signed for the suit breast pocket.
