The Italian tailoring powerhouse has (finally) landed on Mr Porter, so we've exclusively selected our favourite bits from the collection to get your wardrobe up to full working order.
All items available now from mrporter.com.
1 | Blazer
Ermenegildo Zegna is famed for its in-house manufactured fabrics, produced in the brand's Trivero factory just north of Italy. This wool and silk mix blazer is perfect for wear on both cool summer nights and into the autumn as the fabric is light and breathable.
2 | The Shirt
A slim fit whit shirt is a wardrobe essential. Wear with a club tie for the ultimate late-summer preppy effect.
3 | The Sweater
Another good option for when the cooler nights draw in, this super-soft mélange crew neck looks great worn with a T-shirt and just as good with a smarter jacket.
4 | The Jeans
The slight stretch in these jeans means that they are super-comfortable and perfect for weekend wear. Roll up the cuffs and team with some slick white sneakers for a failsafe summer look.
5 | The Sneakers
Combining superlative Italian craftsmanship with smart contemporary design, the laceless sneakers will see you through the rest of the summer and beyond.
6 | The T-Shirt
There's no point skimping on the basics, far better to buy a high quality T-shirt you'll want to wear all the time as opposed to a cheap stiff one which won't survive a wash. This wool slub version will be your secret weapon in September as the weather cools down.
7 | The Chinos
It's all about military-inspired garb right now and these slim fit garment washed chinos are a great entry point into the trend. Team with a sharp white Tee and a navy over-shirt for a slick summer look.
8 | The Boots
Everyone needs a good pair of Chelsea boots in their wardrobe, and they don't get much better than this suede and leather panelled pair. Team with a cropped trouser with a cuff.
