Last night, Ermenegildo Zegna unveiled its latest global store on London's New Bond Street. Designed by acclaimed architect Peter Marino (who has previously created shops for brands such as Bulgari, Dior and Guerlain), the new store features four floors of menswear and accessories. The new venue is also the exclusive home to a unique Bespoke Shoe Collection in nine styles of shoes and boots, handcrafted by English shoemakers Gaziano & Girling and designed by Alessandro Sartori . Each pair is inspired by a close friend of Sartori's, from Sean the illusionist and Benjamin the dancer, through to David the art dealer.
Actors Sam Clafin, Benn Northover and Luca Calvani were joined by dancer Eric Underwood, model Andres Valencoso, Jack Guinness and actress Eva Riccobono at the launch, where guests sipped on cocktails and were treated to a screening of 'The Dancer' – a short video produced by Zach Gold featuring choreographer and dancer Benjamin Millepied, interpreting the elegance and beauty of the bespoke shoe that bears his name.
