An Eco-Sneaker and a Limited-Edition by Steve Aoki

Ermenegildo Zegna gets even greener with its iconic Triple Stitch Sneaker, while Grammy-nominated American DJ Steve Aoki creates his own limited edition of the Triple Stitch.


It’s the sneaker du jour. This season, the iconic Triple Stitch Sneaker makes progressive strides forward with a contemporary new spectrum of colours and materials, now including a #UseTheExisting TM version. Reducing Zegna’s ecological footprint, this #UseTheExisting TM sneaker encompasses the brand’s green vision for the future. The new version of the Triple Stitch Sneaker features a soft wool upper made from recovered 14MILMIL14 fibres, threads, and fabrics from all phases of the production process. The lining and sole are constructed from partially recycled cotton and rubber, stepping closer towards Zegna’s goal of zero waste.

Steve Aoki creates his own Triple Stitch Sneaker

Grammy nominated DJ, Producer, Designer, and Entrepreneur, Steve Aoki, joined Zegna’s global community of Modern Voices and created his very own Triple Stitch Sneaker. A limited edition of 77 pairs will be created worldwide, each uniquely marked. The desire to reinterpret Zegna’s iconic Triple Stitch Sneaker was born of the open conversation of changes in the men’s wardrobe to a more casual and contemporary aesthetic.

Lifestyle Insider is a kind of junction point, connecting people with diverse interests that touch on the more luxurious aspects of lifestyle – fashion, design, travel, food and spirits, art, watches and jewellery, cars, yachts, and aviation, and technology. People today don’t fit into boxes and categories. In our individual ways, we are interested in diverse themes, products, and the challenges that face our world today. You will judge how well this effort of mine caters to your passions and proclivities.

Lifestyle Insider is a showcase of all that is beautiful and luxe. Behind every creation, is a designer, chef, entrepreneur, or a design maison. I have delved into my own appreciation for objetsde luxe that I have admired over the years – be it a love of fashion from the world’s top Parisian and Italian fashion maisons and their ’90s muses, or the care that goes into sari and Indian textile collections in my own family. Growing up on four continents, as the daughter of a former Indian Ambassador, I’ve seen a remarkable array of historic places and met a myriad people. My aim is to bring my world view into this website, a curation of what I find particularly stunning, unique, and newsworthy.

It’s an exciting time for brands all over the world. With change comes opportunity. With the global ‘reset’ and uncertainty on many fronts, there is a chance to write a new script. Let’s be those pioneers.

A bit about me:
A luxury and fashion journalist with 25 years of experience in publishing and magazine journalism, I have edited some of India’s top fashion and luxury magazines. I got my BA in Comparative Literature from UC Berkeley, and went on to receive my Master’s in English and French from the University of Strasbourg, France. I have also studied German and Film. I live in Gurugram, India, and look forward to once again exploring our world with a new-found freedom.
