With the next Spring/Summer 2012 collection, Ermanno Scervino takes us on a voyage across the India of Rajasthan and of the Maharajas. On distinctions between sporty and couture melt away in this new collection, one that offers daring combinations of different materials and different worlds. Graphic fishnet or cotton lace, a weave which evokes Vienna straw yields a style with essential volumes of sartorial structure. Glamorous sporty style blends with sophisticated couture, playing with unexpected combinations. Large zippers, eyelets, drawstrings and big volumes interpret the technical fabrics such as the duchesse, at times double. The leather is embellished by technological and handcrafted workmanship that creates original inlay and fringe patterns.
In a play of contrasts, the geometric jackets are placed over light dresses and hyper-feminine godè-lounguette skirts.
The waistline becomes the meeting point between shirt and skirt which now brush against each other without ever revealing…
Colors: the world of blues, whites, sophisticated greens, and khaki.
The straw braid weave appears as if it were precious embroidery. Melts with lace in an experimental work with a used, three-dimensional effect for the couture garments – with a rock n’ roll look – and for the colored accessories.The handmade shirts to be donned over long chiffon skirts break the rules for evening, sometimes evoking the Indian sari with their slits.The piece are made with infinite layers of organza voile or in chiffon, which, doubled, cage fabrics with graphic designs.
