In a sharp melding of sport and style, Zara’s Edition Deconstruct collection reimagines classic tailoring through the lens of fencing. Two-time Olympic fencing medalist Race Imboden steps into the fashion arena, embodying the capsule’s essence with elegance.

The imagery captured by photographer Willy Vanderperre offers a monochromatic palette, highlighting the fluidity of motion inherent to both the fencer’s craft and the garments themselves.

The collection showcases a stark contrast of colors, akin to the timeless duel between light and shadow, with pieces that convey a sense of controlled movement and tactical precision. Zara’s redefined suit jackets and pleated trousers dance on the line between modern and traditional, crafting an aesthetic of streamlined silhouettes against the clean backdrop of fencing.

Uniting the collection in a neutral palette of black and white is a deliberate choice mirrored by the artistic direction of Vanderperre’s photography. Here, essential wardrobe items like the iconic leather jacket, cardigan, and white denim find new life when juxtaposed with tailoring, reinforcing Zara’s dedication to a versatile, enduring style.

Zara’s Edition Deconstruct collection studies the power of simplicity, proving that an infinite array of possibilities lies within a limited spectrum. From the sleek lines of the fencing-inspired garments to the practical elegance of the casual staples, Zara delivers a collection that is both a nod to the history of tailoring and a stride into its boundless future.
