Crown jewel fabrics turn over a century old in the Ermenegildo Zegna Fall 2014 Menswear Collection. Creative director Stefano Pilati should actually be labeled a creative genius, transforming sartorial snoozers into fantasy-laden gems. A basic slim cut wool suit-jacket isn't just a jacket; it's a complex and deep ensemble that's given equal attention as every other element in the collection.
It's cut slim around the shoulders and cropped short with a pronounced flap, pants are straight but relaxed, twisting tradition by wringing out the boredom of plaids, wools and flannels through ribbing, quilting and giving them a micro-structure that splinters the surface into a galaxy of pin points.
Even after all of these details, each outfit looks completely normal and wearable, but possesses an assured power through intrigue.
