The Ermenegildo Zegna S/S 2015 collection was made by Pilati, inspired from Pilati himself (sounds a bit odd, but it is that way), his past works (Ysl, Prada) and from 30´s intellectuals in pinstriped suits. Yes, his aesthetic was present in every piece; and here I am not only talking about his signature shapes, but also about the collection´s mood. Just mind how Pilati dresses himself and you will get the image of the collection. Half belted coats having that non-rigid, soft-bathrobe effect, loose cardigans, comfy carrot shaped trousers, that prefer to be turned up rather than hemmed (that´s a true joyeux de vivre! ), double-face coats to end with five final looks with unusual colour combinations, that reminded us his YSL time and the love for North Africa. Overall a collection composed by oversize, elongated and deconstructed pieces. Pilati´s Zegna is more youthful and fresh, without losing its famous elegance.
