EAST MEETS WEST
Milan: Celebrating 20 years of business in China, Ermenegildo Zegna focused on men who live between two worlds – carrying within themselves a blend of West and East as perfectly balanced as yin and yang. Elements of uniforms from the Chinese Revolution were seamlessly mixed with 1940s-influenced classics. The “LIVE-D” runway show was presented with a convergent reality experience, created in collaboration with a visual consultant from the film Avatar. The resulting effect made it appear as though models were stepping from the Great Wall of China into the Milan space.
