Business, pleasure and brisk mountain-air style intermingle in Ermenegildo Zegna’s A/W 2012 collection. Their assiduous gentleman is sent from his fast-paced city life to ski lodges the world over, where work-time becomes playtime and a cup of coffee is replaced with a glass of warm mulled wine. Natural-shouldered jackets, fustian capes and raw-edge shearling jackets keep the cold outdoors looking sharp. Elongated three-piece suits, chunky and patchwork cashmere and alpaca sweaters, patterned shirts, Napa leather and corduroy pants are offered in varying shades of wood brown, hazelnut and okra, connecting thoughtfully through plaids, checks and chevron for the kind of sophisticated mixing and matching that maybe hard to pull off in an office but work splendidly when the ski lift is but a mere snowmobile ride away. When the sun goes down, the midnight blue, black and snow white play best in the form of a quilted tuxedo and gorgeous “sabled” Spazzolino robe coat.
