| August 14, 2015 | 2 Comments

The reimagining of PAL ZILERI continues with the Spring-Summer 2016 collection, the latest CRAFT philosophy. Building on the decades of PAL ZILERI quality and tradition, new majority shareholders, Qatar-based Mayhoola for Investments, have brought a new management team, and new creative director Mauro Ravizza Krieger. The new team continues to draw from the Italian savoir-faire and artisanal knowledge held by the craftsmen of the PAL ZILERI manufacture in Quinto Vicentino, located in the historic Veneto region.

The new PAL ZILERI is guided by the concept of AVANT CRAFT, a synthesis of an avant-garde outlook and generations of craft and tailoring knowledge. New strategies, new designs, and new materials are focused to suit the digitally connected, fast-paced lifestyle of the contemporary global man.

The Spring-Summer 2016 collection continues the evolution of PAL ZILERI with a bold leap into pattern and color inspired by 20th-century kinetic and optical art. Through Mauro Ravizza vision, squares, diamonds and compositions-in-motion are reflected to serve as a subtle reference to the visual complexity of our digital age.

As works of art fully reveal themselves with careful study, so do the geometric and chromatic progressions of subtly layered colors building upon each other, the theme is on full display in the shirts, t-shirts, knitwear, and silks, while it is revealed more discreetly in the suiting.

A fluid silhouette of ease and nonchalance prevails, with sport and formality existing in unique equilibrium, a restrained color palette of petrol blue, green, ochre and rust red.

Garments feature functional details and fabrics that are the result of new materials research: jacquard wool, natural fibers enriched by silk and linen, gabardine and mohair.
