BLACKHAWKS’ PATRICK SHARP HOSTS ERMENEGILDO ZEGNA STORE REOPENING
Chicago Blackhawks forward and Stanley Cup champ, Patrick Sharp, hosted the reopening of the Ermenegildo Zegna store on Michigan Avenue in Chicago. The menswear brand is no stranger to dressing sportsman. In addition to Sharp, New York Giants quarterback, Eli Manning, is among the athletes with a suiting style marked by the company’s clothing. Sharp’s teammates Brandon Bollig and Michael Kostka also donned Zegna’s formalwear, as they were on-hand to celebrate the newly designed store. When discussing the fashion house and his personal style, Sharp told WWD:
“I’ve been wearing their suits for a long time,” he said. He particularly appreciates the store’s custom fits, which work well for hockey players. “Our body types aren’t exactly made for off-the-rack,” he said, with “thicker legs and bigger butts” than the average man.
In addition to Zegna’s formalwear, Sharp said he’s been starting to try out the Italian clothier’s casualwear and accessories like travel bags and wallets. He sees his own style as “very casual” — the Canadian prefers an “all-American,” blue-jeans-clad look.
The renovated store includes 4,300 square feet of selling space. The first level showcases leather accessories, Upper Casual and Zegna Sport collections. The new space also revealed the Personalization Project, which offers made-to-order clothing and accessories.
