With lockdown out of the way in which — for now — who doesn’t want a vitamin shot of pink, Emerald Metropolis inexperienced and even purple feathers?
Nobody might blame Ermanno Scervino for packing his assortment with punchy colours — and particulars — that actually brightened this grey Saturday with a present in a breezy, cobbled courtyard not removed from the Duomo.
Company sat on old style chairs with thick cushions and watched the ostrich feathers float by — minty inexperienced tufts on a brief slipdress; purple ones on slightly cocktail quantity, and white tendrils sprouting from a languid sweater.
Sequins had been out and proud, too — shimmering inexperienced on the floor of a shirtdress, or winking from a lineup of lengthy black attire, skirts and halter tops.
All that whimsy was balanced by an uncommon quantity of sporty — borderline avenue — apparel, together with anoraks in vibrant pink or inexperienced, slim cargo pants that gathered just under the knee, and a go well with created from shearling shorts and slightly matching jacket.
It didn’t cling collectively: The craftsmanship was stunning — as all the time — but it surely’s troublesome to think about who would flip to Scervino (or pay his costs) for a pair of cargo pants, a vibrant anorak or a glittery bikini or halter high.
Scervino is a tailoring grasp and his silhouettes are normally so robust, shapely, female and flattering. This season was the exception. It’s clear he’s attempting to attraction to a youthful buyer — and to dial down the formality of previous collections — however that’s simply not him.
His women want stricter traces, extra subtle shapes — and the odd sprinkle of sequin — to brighten their days.
