Paul Surridge Unveils Z Zegna's Fall/Winter 2013 Collection


Z Zegna's creative director, Paul Surridge, made an appearance in the showroom at Ermenegildo Zegna's 5th Avenue location in New York City this week to introduce the brand's fall/winter 2013 collection.

According to Surridge, it's increasingly difficult to innovate in the menswear arena, but he breaks some major boundaries in this latest line by putting a modern twist on some seriously old-school (like 1,000-years-ago old) looks.

Multiple pieces in the collection are derived from medieval times, including the tabard (a sleeveless coat-apron-like thing), one of Surridge's favorite pieces. It's perfect for when, you know, ye want to be stylish while jousting or just enjoying the knightlife.

Quilted suits, bomber suits, and alpaca-wool sweaters give the line a masculine feel. All of the sweaters are fitted with walking gloves at the ends of the sleeves.

The modernism of the collection is present in the accessories, too, with three-dimensional designs on everything from bags to belts to the pull-tabs on the zippers. Even the shoes are given an extra dimension with a unique prism-shaped toe.

Z Zegna's first American store is now open at the Beverly Center in Los Angeles.
