Runway Report: Ermanno Scervino AW18

Ermanno Scervino this season displayed their typical take on femininity-meets-masculine touches. Continuing the trend in Milan for unadulterated feminine glamour, inspiration here came from the 1940s with fur-lined dress coats and chic separates.

Amongst a sophisticated palette of almost completely camel, vivid yellow continued as a key colour for the season seen here as an accent on a geometric print sweater and on accessories from skinny waist-cinching belts to elbow-length gloves and pointed court shoes. Waspy checkered cigarette pants teamed with a roomy diamond print jumper provided a further highlight, as did a couple of luxurious flight jackets, particularly a knee-length variation with super-wide shearling lapels.
Evening wear had a decidedly bridal feel, all white with lace inserts. Layering was fun, providing a new take on wedding day inspiration – we loved a column gown with ruffles around the waistline, paired with a tweed overcoat, plus super-soft knitwear teamed with full ivory skirts.
