Best of the Best 2013: Men's Fashion: Technological Fabrics: Zegna Sport

<< Back to Robb Report, June 2013

The latest technology is today’s most coveted fashion accessory, and Ermenegildo Zegna is taking the idea to an electrifying extreme. Zegna Sport’s new Icon Jacket ($1,295) is a waterproof microfiber piece with full wireless connectivity via Bluetooth equipment. An integrated microphone and joystick control on the sleeve allow conversations and voice dialing even when the mobile device is located at a distance. The sporty jacket has a detachable quilted body warmer and a polyester-and-metal mesh interlining designed to protect the wearer from electromagnetic waves. And for an analog touch, there is the Ermenegildo Zegna High Performance watch. (212.421.4488, www.zegna.com)
