Runway Report: Ermanno Scervino SS19

A conceptual study of contrasts- Ermanno Scervino displayed a collection of such. Simple and patterned, masculine and feminine. All carried a delicate hand, whilst remaining versatile and appealing to the masses. Scervino, true to brand, designed a collection for women, real women. An evening gown was paired back to a quilted hoodie, as a masculine striped shirt was worn with a tulle, ballerina skirt.

Sheer dresses walked the runway in white lace- layered and lengthy or babydoll variations included. A piumino, decorated with delicate floral graffiti. Sequin sweaters, wore themselves under tailored suits. Dark floral prints blossomed over dresses. In experimentation with materials, Scervino designed a trench from black leather lace. Blue jacquard fabric was accentuated with gold thread.

The brand also introduced several men’s looks into the collection. A seamless transition- Scervino replicated some of the looks, reinterpreted into seemingly more masculine versions. A brocade pantsuit and metallic knit sweaters were included in such.

Modernity for Scervino is deeply rooted in the appreciation of tradition. Previous decades served as inspiration in the form of practicality.  Ermanno Scervino crafted a formula of playing with contrasts- a formula perfected in deliverance with the Spring Summer 2019 collection.
