Ermenegildo Zegna designs a lightweight travel wardrobe for the man on-the-go
For some of us, the cabin of an A380 is akin to a second home. If you've earned enough miles to redeem yourself a bi-yearly ticket across the Atlantic, then we're certain you know what we mean when we say frequent flyers are creatures of habit. Dopp kit? Tick. Suit jacket? One for the boardroom and another, for negronis over dinner — to be paired up with oxfords and then pristine, white trainers. Tack on three button-down shirts and two kinds of trousers (flat-front and chinos) and you're ready to roll.
Think your travel wardrobe can't get any leaner? Well, here's how Ermenegildo Zegna's Alessandro Sartori posits that it should be streamlined. Rolling out the Second Skin capsule collection centred around two silhouettes, a suit jacket in weightless wool and silk and blouson in a light, nubuck leather are the dynamic duo allowing you to embark on a catalogue of occassions. Catching up with an old mate? A crisp polo shirt under the latter. After hours tipple with the regional head? Score brownie points for staying dapper in that blazer.
Proferring a slick edit of shirts, knits, trousers and denim to complement the jackets, re-think the satorial travel habits and you'll find that it is in fact just that simple the next time the skies beckon.
The Second Skin capsule collection is available at Ermenegildo Zegna boutiques.
