2012 Sunglasses Collection
A 100-year history of couture and male luxury, of passion for exclusive materials and for very high quality, of constant commitment to innovation: these are the distinguishing features of Ermenegildo Zegna’s style, to be found in every item created by the Maison as well as in the brand’s 2012 Sunglasses Collection. The new glasses bring back to the daily life of an indispensable accessory, the style of a contemporary and cosmopolitan man, a traveller whose elegance is effortless, essential, always self-assured, the result of a deep passion for the Italian, creative and well-balanced style that is embodied by Zegna and that is appreciated all over the world.
Materials and Colors
Under the ‘common thread’ of style and craftsmanship, the new collection is the result of a design that enhances clean and essential lines. Classic aviator shapes prevail in metal models alongside retro-inspired acetates. Exclusive materials such as wood and carbon fiber, are expertly integrated. Pieces are welded by hand, and special attention is paid to the quality of lenses: in fact, all models are presented with variants of polarized lenses. Style, elegance and refinement are reflected in colors too. Gunmetal and gold prevail in metal styles, while bright colors, two-color blue and light tortoise combinations, other than honey, burgundy and the elegant havanas stand out in acetates.
KEY THEMES: Chic Retrò, Minimal Luxury, Leather, Light weight, Round shape.
CHIC RETRÒ: SZ3600_ADT
A model that recalls the 70’s style in every detail. A dive into the past as can be seen in the line of the blue, slightly square front piece which frames smoked lenses. The two-color element, blue top and beige bases, is a classic vintage feature. Visible hinge screws and a tortoise effect for the temples, reinforce the Seventies feel.
MINIMAL LUXURY: SZ3248_544
Pure elegance, craftsmanship and attention to detail turn this model into a refined luxury accessory. The two-color combination for the thin and linear, silver double bridge, interplays with the structure of the gold-effect front piece. Gradient lenses and acetate temples for a style that stands out without going over the top.
An evergreen style that is centered around the treatment of leather as an Ermenegildo Zegna icon, enhancing warm colors, from dark brown to camel. The temples and profile in leather embrace the soft, gradient effect of the lenses, for a casual chic model.
The use of carbon fiber, an exclusive and difficult material to treat, makes this lightweight model stand out, with its high-performance and comfortable design. It is one of the richest proposals of the collection, the symbol of hi-tech non-ostentatious luxury, interplaying with a combination of greys that convey an almost one-colour effect.
ROUND SHAPE: SZ3239_8FF
A thin, tubular, round design and a metal structure highlight a style with a strong personality, vaguely recalling the stars of yesteryear. A fascinating model that combines horn-effect acetate rims with an extremely clean, both old and new, round design.
