MILAN FASHION WEEK - ERMANNO SCERVINO - 24/7 GLAMOUR

The Italians love their animal prints, and definitely not just for looking glamorous in the evenings. At the Ermanno Scervino show, it was Python all the way! IMG_3849.JPG

It was a fabulous colourscape of off-white, white, denim, black, turquoise and delicious grass green with over-jackets revealing sinuous silhouettes. Soft lines and high waists were evident and I nearly screamed at the top of my lungs, "FEMININE, thank god!"

The femininity is not just for me and to my liking. I have been enjoying the masculine vibe emanating from the SS15 catwalks. Boyish kind of works with my shape, but all my lovely clients that are lucky to have those ever so feminine curves have been a little sidelined...

...But not at Ermanno Scervino, where even the boyish parka was given a feminine facelift with its varied lengths and materials. The fabrics included gorgeous tulle, lace with floral prints and a laser-cut embroidery effect. Processes also included a Linen canvas panama structure, mélange raffia, chenille macramé, engraved, coupled and printed-on chiffon and crepe and patchwork knitwear. Gosh, next time I need to get a backstage pass just to admire the techniques up close.
