RUNWAY: Z Zegna SS15Z Zegna was invited to be the guest designer at Pitti Uomo and when the younger sibling of the Ermenegildo Zegna label arrived in Florence, they came totting news that Zegna Sport had been folded into Z Zegna, streamlining the two label to create one cohesive collection. Also, Z Zegna's former creative director Paul Surridge now shares the role with Zegna Sport's designer Murray Scallon.
The result was a true mix of Z Zegna's youthful suiting and Zegna Sport's athleticism, seen in the first look, with a slim cut suit paired with a windbreaker underneath. The collection's muted color palette felt a bit moody for Spring, save for the handful of neon hues at the end. That being said, the collection truly shined when there seemed to be symbiosis between the newly merged labels, from technical fabrics and patterns seen on tailored athleticwear like running pants to a stark suit paired with sneakers, a geometric patterned knit and an anorak.
