For the Italian house‘s latest capsule collection, Ermenegildo Zegna Couture Made in Japan, Head of Design Stefano Pilati looked to five charismatic personalities to star in an exclusive project with photographer Takashi Homma and Olivier Zahm. The protagonists—actor Ryo Kase, creative director Kaie Murakami, musician and composer Keiichiro Shibuya, chef Zaiyu Hasegawa, and architect Shohei Shigematsu—were revealed at a special event for the collaboration last night, September 3, 2015, at the Aman Tokyo hotel in Japan beside Pilati and Zegna CEO Gildo Zegna. Celebrating both the heritage brand’s tailoring skill, as well as its growing Japanese market—Zegna opened a Ginza flagship earlier this spring—the Made In Japan project unites both worlds in smart technical fabric and Italian design.
