Ermenegildo Zegna will kick off the week with a digital event on June 18, followed by a usual list of suspects including Philipp Plein, Canali, Fendi, Tod’s, MSGM and Prada, who are also all opting for a digital format. Some highlights of the week include Diesel debuting the first lineup designed by recently appointed creative director Glenn Martens, as well as new labels that will be included for the first time in the official schedule – Tiscar Espadas, Mans, Franc Elis, Zenam, Revenant RVNT, 424, KNT and Andrea Pompilio for Harmot & Blaine.
