Gianfranco Ferré Catwalk Fashion Show Milan Womenswear Fw2013
Federico Piaggi and Stefano Citron presented their collection in a new show venue this year. To the designers the Palazzo della Permanente not only was a new show area but a fresh start for the Gianfranco Ferré fashion house as well. Piaggi and Citron’s new beginnings did not necessarily mean a whole different signature though. They stayed true to their architectural, asymmetrical style. Done in a color palette of simple shades (nude, black, white, navy) the designers presented quite difficult fabric constructions. Dresses, kimono tops and smoking jackets all had a lot of folding, overlapping and layering going on. With accessories like croc obi belts and leather neck creations it was even hard to distinguish one piece from the other. Yet the designers sure managed to keep things interesting.
