MILAN, Feb 27, 2009 / FW/ — With strong couture influences, Ermanno Scervino reinvented the “quilted” effect as he added ruche and ruffles, thus by doing so, the very utilitarian and functional quilting effect became a fashion statement. The masculine military references on the coats are balanced by the narrow waist and flared skirt.
Yet, the multiple variations of the coat is just one-half of the equation. The other half is on the gowns and cocktail dresses. With a fitted bodice and shapely silhouettes, it recalls the retro style of the 1940s. Micro accordion pleats and lace give the look that extra edge to make it unforgettable.
And don’t forget the knee-high and thigh-high boots proposed as platforms or stilettos. If for some reason, you are only allowing yourself on accessory next fall, then Ermanno Scervino shoes is the must-have item.
