Blackhawks and high-end menswear will collide tonight at Ermenegildo Zegna's new Michigan Avenue shop. A private bash hosted by forward Patrick Sharp will celebrate the new store—and launch a cool, new capsule collection.
On display now, the collection features a wool suit decked with a pied-de-poule pattern (basically, houndstooth. But "pied-de-poule" is so much more fun.) There are also special-edition suits and accessories, along with printed silk ties inspired by "dot art" from Aboriginal culture. The black-and-white ties go for about $195 apiece.
