Z Zegna will be the Menswear Guest Designer of the June edition of Pitti Immagine Uomo.

“We are very happy that an international protagonist of menswear as Zegna Group will present a preview of its Z Zegna collection at Pitti Immagine Uomo,” commented Gaetano Marzotto, President of Pitti Immagine. “This young and sporty collection reinventing formal apparel combined with activewear materials and themes, and inspired by metropolitan lifestyles is highly tuned with our own show's whole research areas.”

“Zegna Group is constantly involved as a major protagonist of Milan menswear week,” continues Marzotto. “While participating extraordinarily to this edition of Pitti Uomo, when our show will also be celebrating the 60th anniversary of 'Centro di Firenze per la Moda Italiana' with the program Firenze Hometown of Fashion, such prestigious guest is showing a confirmation that Italian menswear fashion system is truly taking the right steps in order to evaluate its strong points and – this way – face all new and future international challenges at best.”

The Z Zegna event will take place in Florence on June 19, in the early evening.

The 86th edition of Pitti Immagine Uomo is scheduled to happen inside the Fortezza da Basso from 17 to 20 June 2014.
