Many people have their favorite designers for many different reasons. One that makes it to my personal list is Ermenegildo Zegna. After taking a look, you will see that they do not create just for the sake of it. They create with an ultimate end in mind, while yet and still setting forth a line of aspiration in their own right.
In GQ UK’s November 2012 Issue, Chris Kightley gives a closer look at some of Ermenegildo Zegna’s designs with a focus on functionality while still adhering to it’s sophisticated curve.
Keeping within the proper balance of modern and forward classics and the creative pulse of fashion, Ermenegildo Zegna continually proves their staked position and their credibility to those who are closely watching how designers will set the bar higher.
