Titled UBZERO HIGHRISE the Z ZEGNA AW 2016/17 collection celebrates high altitude trekking allure re-contextualized within an urban high-rise attitude, where technological tailoring and sportswear converge.
Reminiscent of the mountaineering world, patterns and colours pay homage to the great outdoors: bold graphics in camel, blended with natural woolen whites and greys, are accented with burnt orange, bronze and acidic green.
Tweeded, soft fabrics generously pervade the collection in elongated overcoat silhouettes, knitwear and tailoring.
Technological outerwear, featuring rubberized thermo welded rain macs and laser cut metallic kagools, plays a signature role while harmoniously colliding with chunky sweaters and cosy knitwear.
Graphic, soft tweeded trousers are paired with knitted ankle warmers, merino wool sheepskin trekking boots and backpacks, paving the way for a new era in urban dressing.
Z ZEGNA advances its research into wearable technology with this season’s exclusive “Icon Warmer”, presented for the first time in a tailored interpretation, always using transformational technology in a unique integrated wireless heating support system.
Overall the Z ZEGNA pentagon graphically interfuses within the collection, which also features the iconic “Techmerino”.
Characterized by easy styling and a sophisticated yet mountainous mood, the Autumn/Winter collection represents the ultimate display of Z ZEGNA’s unique approach to metropolitan fashion; reconfirming the brand’s mastery in merging technological tailoring with authentic outdoor sportswear.
