Milan: A stunning rain forest was the evocative set at Ermenegildo Zegna this morning. Pilati was all over this collection. City and nature came to mind when we saw the designer’s lineup of eco-warriors – Classic checked overcoats and bomber jackets were finished with shimmering silver coatings and brushed velvet suits were paired with colour coordinated roll-neck sweaters. The subtly unexpected was the recurring theme throughout the entire show  – sweaters sported hard cap hoodies, while jackets were updated with zippers on the sleeves. The trousers were equally eye-catching – tapered full cut bottoms came in high-waisted lengths and tailored sporty styles were buttoned or cuffed close to the ankles. Other highlights included printed rubber raincoats, 3-d quilted jackets and a beautiful brown ombré overcoat. Another striking collection from Pilati, the man who is bringing coolness and sophistication to men’s tailoring. – Diego Sanchez
