Alessandro Sartori, artistic director of Ermengildo Zegna, made his debut for the brand with the 2017/2018 men’s winter collection. Sartori has already served as Z Zegna and Berluti’s artistic director, and since 2016, creative director of Zegna’s various brands. Sartori created a contemporary collection that focuses on a blending of artisan processes and technology. Traditional fabrics, including Casentino felt, were made into ultra-lightweight cashmere, while distorted, hand-stitched geometric jacquard breathes new life into classic patterns. The tanned wax process gives the leather pieces an impalpable, waterproof quality. The soft silhouettes are defined by strong shoulders; the coats are given shape by drawstrings, and rubber zippers close tailored outerwear. The palette ranges from white and light grey to wine, peacock green and blue.

For Ermenegildo Zegna’s 2017 Winter show, the key words were Crafted Modernity – a “Made to Measure” Fashion Show
Zegna’s creative director, Alessandro Sartori, made his debut with elegant men’s clothing for the fall/winter collection.
Sergio used the collection to narrate the company’s historic past, as well as his own vision for the garments.
The 2017 winter collection is a blend of tradition and craftsmanship.
The raw materials that have defined Zegna throughout the years meet globetrotting design made for a world that never stops.
Zegna’s runway show opened Milan’s Men’s Fashion Week, bringing a mix of modernity and craftsmanship.
One of their recent innovations is Casentino cashmere; the normally common textile was enriched with cashmere and alpaca
Alessandro Sartori insists that innovation is the key for Zegna’s new collection.
Kiefer’s Sette Palazzi were warmed by the sounds of a grand piano, and the Zegna show brought art to the metropolitan scene.
The suits and jackets are made of stitched wool, while the rain jackets were made of stain-proof tanned leather.
Zegna’s 2017 winter collection featured smoking jackets were covered in hand-drawn designs.
Amongst the accessories were “book-bags” inspired by the folders in the company’s archives.
The 2017 show featured a new patented material made of leather strips stretched on looms to create bags, backpacks and shoes.
The new Zegna is multigenerational, multi-ethnical, with a sophisticated yet relaxed aesthetic that is anything but nostalgic.
The new collection used a classic cut for pants, but with elastic hems, and of course, every look was free of ties and cravats.

The Moodboarders is a glance into the design world, which, in all of its facets, captures the extraordinary even within the routine. It is a measure of the times. It is an antenna sensitive enough to pick-up on budding trends, emerging talents and neglected aesthetics. Instead of essays, we use brief tales to tune into the rhythm of our world. We travelled for a year without stopping, and seeing as the memory of this journey has not faded, we have chosen to edit a printed copy. We eliminated anything episodic, ephemeral or fading, maintaining a variety of articles that flow, without losing the element of surprise, the events caught taking place, and the creations having just bloomed.
