State of Transformation–Crafting a minimalist collection for the season, Z Zegna creative director Paul Surridge channeled the 1920’s with an amplified focus on shape. Creating a core of narrow silhouettes for sharp suiting, the collection branched out with oversize outerwear, cut dramatically and featuring large detailing. A testament to impeccable proportions, fall’s lineup weaved its way in between shapes, wide and narrow, creating great contrast and interest. Transforming garments like the shirt jacket, leather made its introduction with rich color and spontaneity, only met by treated mohair. Altogether focused, Surridge’s showing for the fall/winter 2012 season culminated in easy garments given the luxurious makeover in terms of construction, fit and style.
