Editorial

A meeting point of people, but also of cultures and races – the station perfectly embodies a melting pot and a connection, which makes Milan’s spectacular soaring atrium the ideal location for a fashion show, though it has never been used for fashion until now. Alessandro Sartori chose it for his latest Ermenegildo Zegna show and his commuters wore clothes that conveyed the idea of travel, whether short or long. The system Sartori used to build the collection was modular, interchangeable and layered. Outerwear had detachable collars, trousers came with elastic hems and some had three adjustable straps on the leg, practical accessories came in the form of travel bags and velvet baseball caps. Sweatshirts and overcoats featured raised embroidery in the shape of commuters and knits and coats bore abstract architectural motifs. Last but not least, 25% of the nylon, cashmere, and wool pieces were recycled from Zegna factory offcuts. This traveller was also eco-friendly!
