ERMANNO SCERVINO: BRILLIANCE EVERYWHERE
PLAY OF LIGHT AND STONES FOR THE NEW CONTEMPORARY GLAMOUR
Ermanno Scervino: “I have created a new daywear, poised between casual and tailored.
I love contrasts of materials and colours: sporty fabrics such as canvas with couture tailoring, bonded with satin, muslin and lace and glittering with Swarovski crystals.”
The womenʼs show of the Spring Summer 2014, runs on a teak catwalk, inspired by the most glamourous yacht of ʻ60s, the Christina. The star of the show – khaki canvas – becomes couture, bonded with stretch silk satin in contrast colours. Linen and denim too become double-face, bonded with silk duchesse and satin.
Embroidered transparent organza with spotted effect for coats and shorts. Kilts restyled with origami folds, Geometrical transparencies even in the suede, again khaki colour.
All enhanced by Swarovski crystals that embellish the lapels of jackets and reefers, shoulders and necklines.
For the evening, long gowns inspired by caftans in cotton and silk, with soft silhouettes, sometimes clinched at the waist with metal belts. Sculptural mini-dresses with draping and layerings of organza, in various nuances of green, or in irregular chiffon plissé, illuminated by crystals.Three-quarter length dresses with multi-coloured flower embroideries.
The new mini jumpsuits are enveloped by maxi-cardigans in cashmere or technical fibres. PVC is embroidered in houndstooth pattern or in macramé effect in leather. Hints of mink for the yellow canvas parka and the bedjacket.
Hand-worked Florentine straw bag and new peep-toes, even in nuanced leather, satin and gold-coated canvas. A hail of Swarovski crystals, even fumé, on the leather cage sandals.
Khaki and brilliant white, all the shades of green, yellow, black, sky blue and the naturals.
