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.

THE ERMANNO SCERVINO MAN: THE ESSENCE OF SEDUCTION
Denim provides the leitmotif for the collection, amid icons of the past and present.
ERMANNO SCERVINO: “The man of the next summer season highlights his contemporaneity through the denim, which overcomes the habitual standards and becomes the man character of the collection”.
The Ermanno Scervino man looks to the legendary figures that seduced entire generations, but with subtlety, asking no more of his clothing than to reflect his desires, passion and charm.
The designer’s creative approach to the SS 2014 collection takes inspiration from the icons of the past and present, such as Marcello Mastroianni, JFK and Barack Obama, as well as Mick Jagger, Marlon Brando, James Dean and Steve McQueen.
Denim is the key element of the collection and comes in a wide variety of shades and finishes. It becomes tailored, doubled in the collection’s pea coats and jackets, or lacquered with an innovative finish that transforms it without altering its classic denim soul.
The green, black, blue, putty grey and orange denim is lacquered in the collection’s trousers and contrasting stripes.
VOLUMES: new proportions for jackets that pare down the figure, making it cleaner; the trousers are sharp, the pea coats linear and the jackets slim-fit, with rubberised grow-grain details and contrasting stripes.
MATERIALS: new textured effects can be observed in the technical mesh bonded to crêpe de chine, and the leather and suede matched with fine weaves of silk in the jackets, duster coats and shirts. The biker jackets features grossamer-light-croc-print glove leather, while the trousers Swarovski details on shirts and accessories.
PATTERNS: geometric motifs of criss-cross stripes and argyle patterns in the light mohair, stainless steel cotton and cashmere sweaters, with stripes reappearing as trim in the pea coasts and bomber jackets.
ACCESSORIES: lace-up derby shoes in denim and lacquered denim, Oxford shoes with platform soles in two-tone micro-rubber. Denim-coloured and putty grey macramé scarves.
COLOURS: all types of denim wash. Shades: blue, green, black, orange and putty grey.
