Shop the interactive Ermanno Scervino Pre-Fall 2018 collection with a hyper-feminine aesthetic and high-end craftsmanship featuring gentlemanly approach to style and an eye for sensuous sophistication.
The Pre-Fall collection features double cashmeres and mohairs, as well as felted wools so soft they could have been made out of feathers, pashminas, and alpaca furs. To counterbalance the thick consistency of tweeds and wools, the designer adds liquid satins in pastel hues and frothy laces; Chantilly, Valenciennes, and macramé were embroidered or appliquéd on short silk tunics inspired by antique lingerie or transformed into dreamy long dresses with finely pleated inserts.
The same dainty embroideries decorate hand-knit cashmere sweaters in shades of lilac or mimosa, which are worn with patchwork tartan kilts and riding coats that are the focus of a collection rich in beautiful outerwear. To underline the feel of soft structure that infuse the collection, denim is washed until reduced to the smoothest texture, then printed with animal motifs and cut into tight leggings. Unsurprisingly, sporty references are kept to a minimum. The label’s version of the piumino [quilted coat] is quite luxurious. More voluptuous than voluminous and made in blush-colored silk faille, topped a seductive minidress, dyed in the same soft pink shade and elaborately encrusted with lace.
