A Bold Gentleman: Ermanno Scervino Spring/ Summer 2017
By: Riccardo Piannezola
After a pleasant walk between the luxurious buildings on via Manzoni, I was hosted into an unexpectedly warm atmosphere: it was a living room where models,clients and photographers interacted with each other directly, speaking about the new SS17 Scervino men’s collection.
The focal point of this collection is sartorial sportswear mixed with the themes of the stripes and floral shapes. For the daytime, Scervino suggests slim-fit single breast jackets in Gobelin factory floral shapes ton sur ton, bravely paired with ultra-light, cashmere texture sweatpants, floral shorts and round striped necked shirts.
There is an amazing opposition between the pois themed, jacquard printed pajamas suits against street wear leather jackets and cashmere sweaters. The latter were characterized by an innovative and wild geometric eye drawing.
For the evening, single and double breasted suits were paired with elegant, lace inserted shirts. Nappa indianine shoes and oriental style floral Gobelin slippers can be paired without hesitation both with the smoking jacket as with the single breasted jackets and sweatpants. The technique and passion for this collection was created for that dynamic, cosmopolitan man.
