Z Zegna SS13: Italian Modernism

The Z Zegna show always one of the most exciting show to attend in Milan because the brand and their creative director Paul Surridge totally march to the beat of their own drum and stand out from the crowd season after season.
One of Surridge's main inspirations for SS13 was the work of Dan Flavin, famous for his installations of fluorescent lights. In comes a colour palette of fluoro greens, corals and yellows paired with Solaro tailored pieces with micro prints or iridescent finishes that are perfectly light for the summer and add an interesting play on light and texture.
Another strong point of the collection were the elbow-long short sleeves of blazers, jackets and shirts with a 60's flavour.
My favourite part of the collection was the sportswear feel of the line, which has been one of the fixtures on womenswear too during the last two seasons, one that doesn't seem to be going away soon.
It was a intriguing and beautifully finished collection that will work wonders in editorials and look incredibly cool on the streets.
