No-one quite encompasses the eternal male better than the exclusive French fashion house Zilli, and their new 2016-17 Fall/Winter collection pays homage to this ethos whilst incorporating the stylish essentials and expressing the signature Zilli Style.
The beautiful collection of separates oozes contemporary elegance with the iconic jacket taking centre stage, all sharp lines and structure. It’s shorter and more fitted than we’ve seen before and is available in a full chromatic palette – blue, black and bordeaux.
We personally love the straight-cut model, a vision in navy blue cashmere with removable mink collar perfect for colder days and trimmed with pearl grey python piping.
One things Zilli knows is keeping warm in style and the Athos jacket in glazed lambskin, with its masterful diagonal quilting and cashmere sleeves is another welcome addition to this new season collection.
The famous Zilli suit is cut is super 120 for an impeccable, worked in cashmere, tweed and flannel in a traditional Prince of Wales design. A three-piece suit with a five-button waistcoat in striking royal blue complemented with a double-breasted jacket in pearl-gray cashmere, plays with contrasts in a fun and sophisticated way.
Knitwear is key in any winter collection and Zilli plays with signature colour gradients of its knit collection where colours have been sprayed or mixed using plaiting techniques to highlight the contrast of matte and gloss. Mix and match patterns with a burgundy crewneck featuring contrasting collar or wrap yourself up in the zip-up cardigan with taupe and garnet stripes.
The same is true of the shoes. A pair of arty boots in a majestic range of colours, from tobacco brown to blue, or brogues with raw uppers,taupe crocodile quarters and a glazed brown toecap are the perfect final addition to a well put together look. For more casual cool moccasins are a great investment, especially in black crocodile. Throw on a soft satchel in vibrant velvet, this season’s key fabric, in royal-blue crocodile and you’re complete.
