ALL IN THE FAMILY: Olivia Palermo swept into Milan — for a moment — to attend the Ermenegildo Zegna show on Saturday with her beau, the model Johannes Huebl. “I’m off to Doha, [Qatar] tonight for my client Matches. They’re having a party there, and I’m one of the family,” said the socially-minded model, referring to the London-based multi-brand retailer. She was dressed in a tangerine coat and plaid trousers from Agnona, the Italian label that belongs to the Zegna Group.

 

Yundi Li, the Chinese classical pianist taking part in the Zegna and Music program, was among the other front-row guests for the Chinese-themed collection. Gildo Zegna, the company’s chief executive, said Zegna would mark the company’s 20 years in with a “big celebration” in Beijing in September. “This was just an appetizer,” he said.
