Italian luxury fashion house ZEGNA presented the Spring Summer 2023 Menswear Collection, on June 20th, at Lanificio Zegna wool mill at Oasi Zegna, during the ongoing Milano Fashion Week. Brand’s Artistic Director Alessandro Sartori has taken a journey of building up an new language for the Zegna brand while still keeping the signature codes. For this season, Zegna brings lightness and freedom with loose and unstructured shapes which barely touch the body. This new language in which inside and outside, underlayer and outer layer are subverted, owes much to the ease of knitwear. For the collection, Sartori collaborated with London based footwear designer Daniel Bailey, redesigning the iconic Triple Stitch™ Sneaker.
My work stems from a question: what’s next for tailoring? And for the needs of the lives of today? The idea is to use our craftmanship as a progressive tool, keeping the finesse, the attention to detail, the respect of materials while experimenting with shapes that are light and materials, solutions and finishes that give these shapes a new technicality, to mostly building up a new silhouette where effortless and innovation create a new style for men. In doing so, we keep expanding and solidifying a distinctive language, the one of Zegna. – Alessandro Sartori
