January 12, 2013 Milan
In keeping with what's already emerging as a trend this Milan season, those suits were longer, their jackets lower, the waistbands higher (and pressing up higher still with matching cummerbunds). They were worn with matching knits or, in some cases, fencing-style padded vests. They came with coats in Zegna's own alpaca, Spazzolino, or shaved mink; the sportier looks, with jackets in deerskin and knitted silk.
Luxe wasn't wanting. Neither was tech. An element of excitement might've been. Most eyes landed on Zegna's newly appointed head of design, Stefano Pilati, whose first collection arrives this summer. There's a good bet for it.
