The Ermanno Scervino fall winter 2014 woman can slip on a pair of rugged lace-up walking boots, some angora micro-shorts and a fur jacket and walk out of the house undaunted by the bitter cold wind piercing her naked legs.
With fox, chinchilla, mink and Persian lamb in her wardrobe, she can act like she’s not trying to impress anyone, but she so IS.
Amid a flurry of lace, argyle, satin and padded jackets, it was difficult to pinpoint a main theme or cultural influence at the show, because basically, there wasn’t one.
“I am not just influenced by a country. We work to please a globalized public. For me all women are equal – whether they are Russian, Chinese or American,” Scervino told Now Fashion backstage after the show.
True to Scervino’s signature style, argyle took center stage at the show, delicately crafted into fur and angora and drenched in powdered pastels and monochrome and dressed up with crystal necklaces.
Lace also played a supporting role: royal blue slip dresses were draped over in leopard and white heart shaped tube dresses were matched with extreme cold looks like shearling winter coats.
Tuxedo pantsuits and fanciful skirt suits and floor length black dresses fastened with diagonal bows at the neck enhanced the collection — a welcome end to the show after the parade of nonchalant day wear.
