ERMENEGILDO ZEGNA XXX OUTFITS ROYAL BALLET FLANDERS PERFORMERS FOR BENJAMIN MILLEPIED’S BACH STUDIES

Following the world premiere of Bach Studies (Part 2) performed by L.A. Dance Project at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris earlier this year, now the Royal Ballet Flanders will perform Bach Studies in Antwerp, bringing the French choreographer Benjamin Millepied for the first time in Belgium. The performance, which began on May 19th, will see all the dancers wearing custom Ermenegildo Zegna XXX looks designed by Ermenegildo Zegna’s Artistic Director, Alessandro Sartori.

The special collaboration for this dance wardrobe emerged from Sartori’s passion for the arts and a desire to partner with long-time friend Benjamin Millepied, co-founder of the L.A. Dance Project. Which was founded back in 2012, by choreographer and dancer Benjamin Millepied, along with composers Nico Muhly and Nicholas Britell, art consultant Matthieu Humery, and founding producer Charles Fabius- its mission is to create new work and to revive seminal collaborations from influential dance makers.

Inspired by the purity of ecclesiastic dresses and to resonate to the bold yet delicate choreography of Millepied’s creation, all outfits created with exclusive blends of silk and jersey, facilitating fluid movement in modern designs.

The lightweight fabrics used in a combination of tonal or combined black and off-white pleated skirts on top leggings and roll necks.

“I adore working with Benjamin because I love his energy, his creative vision and his modern dance, which is based on his knowledge of classic dance. This is just like my work, blending craft and modernity. The silhouettes that we created with Benjamin for this ballet are made of new and tech materials, yet handmade and couture-constructed. Men and women are moving in beautiful ways, and the clothes complete the silhouettes like a fourth dimension. I love them’’said Alessandro Sartori.
