Gianfranco Ferré Catwalk Fashion Show Milan Womenswear FW2012
There were several really great aspects of the Gianfranco Ferre show today, inspired by Helmut Newton’s photography.
1. Designers Frederico Piaggi and Stefano Citron chose the most stunning shades, from deep emerald green to beautiful burgundy.
2. They opted for strong, architectural looks, which made the models look elegant and confident.
3. They, as did many other Italian designers, played with texture in a modern way.
With a focus on cut the designers created the most original, asymmetric looks. They emphasized the models’ waists by lines or belts and gave the girls more appearance by adding multiple collars.
Unexpected shapes and thick unflattering materials gave the collection a daring allure, which very well fits with today’s trends. Piaggi and Citron may be new at the Italian fashion house; with this collection they surely are on the right track.
