After weeks of anticipation, the fourth and final episode of Ermenegildo Zegna's feature film 'A Rose Reborn' has finally been released as part of a full 19-minute compilation that consists of the previous episodes.
The fourth episode (starts at 11:10) takes Stephen (Jack Huston) to Milan where he does his final exchange of clothing, which reflects the change of Stephen's personality and vision throughout his journey across the globe.
The film concludes with Stephen and the envoy (Daniel Wu) , which is revealed as the real Mr Lu, embarking on the new journey upon their agreement on sharing both their skills and technology to give the world a chance for rebirth.
Directed by South Korean director Park Chan-Wook, the first film titled 'You're Not Wearing That' focuses mainly on two of the Ermenegildo Zegna's brand ambassador Jack Huston and Daniel Wu.
Scored by Clint Mansell (Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream), the short film has the cold, polished esthetic quality the South Korean filmmaker is known for, aided by director of photography Natasha Braier (The Milk of Sorrow, The Rover).
The lead actors are dressed entirely in Ermenegildo Zegna Couture, sporting fashions created by Stefano Pilati, while the rest of the cast is outfitted in the brand's various other collections.

Episode 1: You're Not Wearing That
In this first instalment, Ermenegildo Zegna shows us that its couture collection can be worn at any given occasion, no matter the place or time of the day – even when you are meeting a mysterious man in a 200 metre underground mining facility in Wyoming, USA.
Episode 2: I Speak With The Voice of Mr Lu
Following the first episode, Stephen (Jack Huston) meets with a mysterious Asian man (Daniel Wu), who represents Mr Lu, in an ungerdround facility in Wyoming. Here, Stephen is given a riddle and asked to exchange his suit jacket with the representative for an unknown reason. Soon after, Stephen is directed by a message to fly off to Shanghai, in hopes of meeting the enigmatic Mr Lu.
Episode 3: Unless I'm Dead
From the mines, Stephen’s next meeting takes him to Shanghai where he is wearing the jacket the messenger exchanged with him. Once again, he meets the envoy (Daniel Wu) and not Mr. Lu. At this meeting the men exchange trousers in front of flashing cameras in an exhibition centre, following with yet another riddle.
