A BIG BIRTHDAY: Among the many events organized around its centennial, Zegna will publish “Ermenegildo Zegna — Enduring passion for fabrics, innovation, quality and style,” a tome on the history and heritage of the men’s wear and textile company founded in Trivero, Piedmont, in 1910. The book is divided into four chapters that represent the firm’s core values — “Mind,” “Hand,” “Style” and “Environment.” Each features images, including past advertising campaigns and photos by the likes of Mimmo Jodice, who shot the black-and-white cover. Anna Zegna, image director of the family-owned company, said compiling the book was a trip down memory lane. “We researched our archives with the same excitement with which I used to rifle through my grandparents’ attic. Everything was so interesting,” she said. Published by Skira, the $100 book will be sold at all Zegna flagships plus other select retailers, starting with Europe in May and followed by the U.S. in September. It will also be available on Amazon.com. Part of the proceeds will go to Care & Share, a nonprofit organization whose program includes guaranteeing education for children in Southern India.
