Ermenegildo Zegna 2012 Collection

Ermenegildo Zegna 2012 Collection

Sun-faded colors, soft silhouettes and fabrics treated with innovative techniques that enhance their highly contemporary elegant quality: the mood of Zegna’s 2012 Spring-Summer fashion show flows through its new Eyewear collection. The spirit is sophisticated yet informal, dominated by an interplay of subtle contrasts: technological materials and vintage-feel patina treatments. The finishing of plastic processing or high-technology brushing, mixed with the natural shades of acetates, convey interesting tactile effects. Glossy and matt, streaked and antique, are blended with the grains of natural wood inserted in the temples and with lines of metal, to create a vintage yet modern combination. Style, harmony and functionality can be found in all the brand’s eyewear families, from the most technological in titanium and wood to the neoretro families where the color palette stands out with its distinctive modernity that is so typical of Zegna’s Italian style: grisaille effects in acetate and Chevron patterns in different colors light up elegant shapes that recall the past. Classic gunmetal and gold, which prevail in metal styles, are reinterpreted through interesting antique treatments,...
