_DSC0263Ermenegildo Zegna, Italy’s finest menswear luxury brand launched its first West African flagship store in Lagos on 1st of December 2013. The Lagos flagship store is an architectural masterpiece of its own, located in Victoria Island, Lagos’ ubercool business district.  Deriving from the Zegna Global creative workbook, the store was designed by Studio Berreta and implemented by Tope Edu Designs.

The design and layout of the store speaks exquisite luxury and tells the heritage of this fine luxury brand, through still photos, rich embroidery and pin-perfect displays.

The Lagos Flagship store is utter embodiment of the Zegna signature: masculine, understated, sophisticated, classy, classic and flawless.  It is a harmonious blend of natural colour palettes, sustainable woods and cut-glass finishings.

In typical Zegna style, the Lagos flagship store offers the full array of Zegna products and services: personalised couture, made-to-measure wear, casual wear, sports apparel and the finest hand crafted shoes, belts, bags, silk ties and other accessories.  Each collection is distinctly and perfected represented in designated corners of the store.

To celebrate this maiden store opening in Lagos, Ermenegildo Zegna hosted an exclusive intimate evening at the Flagship store premises at 175 Akin Adesola Street, Victoria Island, Lagos dedicated to the fine clientele that have loved and appreciated the style and elegance embodied in the Ermenegildo Zegna brand through the years.

Guests enjoyed endless flow of Tattinger Champagne and d’or hourves served by Chef Fregz.

Representatives of Ermenegildo Zegna from Milan, Italy were at hand to enlighten and share in celebrating the launch of this one of the world’s most iconic luxury brands – right here in Lagos.
