BEAUTY: Clothing--Ermenegildo Zegna

What an amazing retro-future Spring Summer '16 collection Stefano Pilati for Ermenegildo Zegna just showed at Milano Moda Uomo! Naïve madras and picnic plaids from the 50s and 60s in the form of car coats, trenches, and short waited jackets had a definite sleek feeling, especially when seen with the light, gauzy all-white section that closed the show. The collection lightly evokes a time period without being heavy handed yet still feels contemporary (thanks to the venue, a blindingly-lit white space) and completely wearable, something that is not a prerequisite for me liking a collection or designer. But I just want to don one of those white, gossamer-like outfits and have lunch in a lovely, palm-frond covered cabana by the ocean.

With the collection were some intriguing fringed suede moccasins and desert chuckka boots.
