Titled ‘Subzero High-rise’, this collection celebrates high altitude trekking allure within an urban high-rise attitude resulting in technological tailoring and sportswear converging. This is good news for any gent who wants to look dapper whilst keeping warm at autumn/winter race meetings!

Reminiscent of the mountaineering world, patterns and colors pay homage to the great outdoors with bold graphics and colours of camel, natural woollen whites and greys accented with burnt orange, bronze and acidic green.

Tweeded, soft fabrics generously pervade the collection in elongated overcoat silhouettes, knitwear and tailoring.

Technological outerwear, featuring rubberised thermo-welded rain macs and laser-cut metallic cagoules, plays a signature role while harmoniously colliding with chunky sweaters and cosy knitwear.

Graphic, soft tweeded trousers are paired with knitted ankle warmers, merino wool sheepskin trekking boots and backpacks, paving the way for a new era in urban dressing.

Z ZEGNA advances its research into wearable technology with this season’s exclusive ‘Icon Warmer’, presented for the first time in a tailored interpretation, always using transformational technology in a unique integrated wireless heating support system.

The fabrics are embellished all over with three-dimensional hand embroideries, ornamental motifs and woven patchwork of jacquard patterns.
