Runway Report: Ermanno Scervino SS16

Ermanno Scervino’s Spring Summer 2016 collection is about an Italian lady walking down the Quadrilatero della Moda. She looks genuine, feminine, sexy while wearing neutral matching shades and overlapping layers for a seductive and sensual touch. She loves ultra feminine pieces outlined by cuts taken from the male wardrobe.

The Italian brand has always leaned toward designing a collection for the confident woman and this season focused on black and white working together to create beautiful gowns layered in chiffon and organza veils effortlessly gliding on the body, creating a sinuous silhouette.

The masculine side was defined by tuxedo dustcoats in various materials: in multi-layered lace, doubled pashmina coupled with lace, raffia, lasered canvas or the new military-style organza. The sweet lady touch was given by pastel nuances, impalpable muslins, “safari”  style jumpsuits and handmade oversize knits in mélange yarns with precious embellishments.
