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.

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.
