Ermenegildo Zegna Reset Fall/Winter 2021 Collection
Ermenegildo Zegna showcased its latest Fall/Winter 2021 collection titled ‘Reset’ on January 15 at the Milan Fashion Week.
Artistic Director Alessandro Sartori’s latest collection addresses the necessity to hit the reset button, when necessary, and do it all over again but in a different way with a diverse mindset yet keeping a memory, awareness and progressing.
“We all are experiencing a new reality concerned with new needs, which lead us to previously unseen
lifestyles and attitudes. It is precisely at a time like this, when everything is under discussion, that we, at
Zegna, have decided to (Re)set. We have looked at our roots to (Re)interpret our style codes and (Re)tailor
the modern man. Outdoor and indoor come together and a new way of dressing takes hold, where comfort and style blend to create a new aesthetic”, says Sartori.
The collection blends the private wardrobe with the public one. A set of clothing that works how you need it. Be it for indoors, outdoors, living, or lounging. The focus was on retailoring the modern man, outfitting him in easy, effortless silhouettes that still cut a figure—like shawl-collared robes, track pants, cashmere coats, shearling jackets, reimagined looser suiting, belted coats, double front jumpers and the blousons.
The colour palette of the collection is sealed by a chromatic flow that starts with notes of Alpine star white, Autumn foliage beige, Felce green, smoky grey, dense black, forest mud with sudden accents of orange. The overall chromatic solidity is broken by the glitched pied de poule that swarms in optical jacquards, by the diagonal stripes that rhythm full outfits.
The collection was presented in the form of a film on Friday. Fluid camera movements and uncontrived passages from inside to outside offer a visual narrative full of sudden surprises and ruptures from one situation to the other. Glimpses of a metropolis and the insides of an ideal building flow smoothly as models cross rooms, paths, and ambiences until The (Re)set finally unveils its meta meaning, the set being in fact the theatrical place where the filming happens.
