Ermenegildo Zegna: An Enduring Passion for Fabrics, Innovation, Quality, and Style
This is a brand-new copy, never opened, still in plastic wrap. I am the original owner, got it direct from Zegna.
Still in the protective cardboard housing as it came direct from Zegna.
Shipping IS INCLUDED TO CONUS. International shipping is possible, but I would need to get a quote. I'll cover the first bit of international shipping cost but you would need to make up the rest.
The ends of the plastic wrap have come open a bit (was like this when I got it) and the back side of the dust jacket has a couple of spots where it's been slightly curled up. Nothing that wouldn't be simple to fix once the plastic wrap was off.
This is a really epic book, the size and scale of the pictorial history is awesome. I'm letting this go only reluctantly - before I crack it open and ooh and ahh over every page! Great on a coffee table or side table as a conversation piece, or just to peruse and look at.
Here's the description Zegna gives for the book:
The extraordinary story of the first century of a great Italian fashion house that has always been a paragon of style. Gorgeously designed, handsomely bound, and abundantly illustrated, this is the first book ever to present the 100-year history of a leader in men’s luxury clothing and one of the oldest business families in Italy. As a family business, Ermenegildo Zegna goes back to the second half of the nineteenth century. Angelo Zegna a watchmaker by trade, decided to open a wool mill. Of his ten children it was the last, Ermenegildo, born in 1892, who took over what was to become one of the best-known and most dynamic family businesses in Italy. The extensive historical reconstruction of the early decades of Ermenegildo Zegna S.p.A. is followed by a detailed description of the fabrics, techniques, and custom tailoring of its most exclusive garments. Numerous images illustrate the lands providing the raw materials: Australia, Peru, and Mongolia. Just as spectacular is the photo album of the celebrities and spokespersons wearing Zegna, the international advertising campaigns, the list of awards won, and Zegna-sponsored sports and cultural affairs (red carpets, openings, car races, environmental and sports events).
Interested? Just drop me a PM. I've uploaded several photos and hope you find them helpful!
