Backstage at Ermenegildo Zegna’s Fall/Winter 2020 Show
This season, Ermenegildo Zegna challenged itself to #UseTheExisting for its Fall/Winter 2020 show. The presentation was conceptualized in collaboration with American artist Anne Patterson and featured a set decorated with thousands of ribbons made from discarded fabrics, further emphasizing the sustainable angle of the collection. Mixed fabrics, both natural and synthetic, were used cohesively on the range of tailored looks and accessories.
“At Zegna, I have the privilege to experiment at every level, from the mix of fibers to the evolved tailoring shapes,” Alessandro Sartori said in a statement. “It is all about reshuffling or hybridizing categories, breaking boundaries in order to explore new territories: this is our new tailoring lexicon. One experimentation leads to the next, in one seamless dialogue, always keeping in mind that our art should always respect the earth. That’s our mission, as both humans and fashion-makers.”
