Z Zegna Enough for You? - Shows Men the way


In a recently penned autumn / fall 2011 fashion trend guide for men I detailed the adaption of relaxed tailoring and loose fitting clothes into the mainstream wardrobes of the fashion forwards. While the modern men’s suit remains all about a smart, masculine, slim cut, the inverse is becoming true of informal-wear: from casual trousers to sports jackets, the evolution of the men’s silhouette is becoming relaxed.
For an exploration of the relaxed and tailored as youthful, one needs look no further than Z Zegna’s autumn / winter 2011 campaign.

Worked through everything from overcoats to trousers, Z Zegna join a growing list of fashion houses exploring the style, a list that also includes the likes of Dolce & Gabbana and Burberry Prorsum. Where others have been overt in adapting a relaxed fit, Z Zegna have instead opted for subtlety: trousers break gently, suit jackets tend towards 3 buttons with a looser-than-fashionable waist, and pleats prove their comeback.

レイバン サングラスを見ると、ときどきヒマワリのことを思い出します。普段この二つのものになんの関連も考えられないかもしれません。しかし、よく考えると、レイバン モデルとヒマワリ両方も太陽の光に向かって、自分を発展させることは共通点じゃありませんか。レイバン 偏光サングラスは最もそうです。
