The Ermanno Scervino Women’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection has a continuous push towards objective beauty, obtained through a meticulous attention to details in the construction of garments and choice of materials. The sartorial craftsmanship is what makes Ermanno Scervino an iconic house. The collections have never failed to speak to the old-world glamour that never actually gets old.
This season Scervino served up pleated lace but more modern, worked into a honeycomb patterns. Vertical and horizontal lines were placed together to create new optical effects. Eco-leather jumpsuits and jackets traced the silhouette of tomorrow onto the body. Suits, in total white or with an animal pattern printed on astrakhan embroidery, were embellished with jeweled floral decorations that outline an Art Nouveau of the future.
Uniform-inspired outerwear is completely de-constructed, reinventing itself in a sensual way. For evening beauty is sublimated in dreams. Silk organza dresses were offered with an impalpable lightness, in delicate shades or in bold black softened by embroidered flowers, leaving a dream-like trail in their wake.
