On December 9th and 10th, in the midst of a cold winter, spring creatures wearing lacy light dresses, were fluttering around the halls of GUM, Petrovsky Passage and VESNA. It wasn’t “12 months” fairy tale, where beautiful snowdrops blossomed in the fierce of winter cold. It was a trunk show of Ermanno Scervino spring-summer collection organized by BOSCOFAMILY, which was firstly presented within the Fashion Week in Milan.
The guests invited to the private event, could get acquainted with 20 looks from the spring-summer Ermanno Scervino collection and make the pre-order of the showed models.
The motto of Ermanno Scervino is "Beauty, beauty is above all: absolute, all-powerful beauty without a trace of nostalgia". The new collection created in the best traditions of the Italian dolce vita, features if not nostalgia but the abundance of historical references.
Two dozens of gentle pastel dresses and suits of silk, lace and floral appliqués are as if taken from carefree pastoral paintings by Boucher and Fragonard - cheerful Frenchmen, who have celebrated the joy of life. Light as clouds tight-fitted outfits, slightly opening the exciting parts of the female body are reminiscent of bashful bathing nymphs, who hid themselves flirty to the folds of fabrics at an unexpected appearance of ancient heroes.
Strict lines, recognizable embroidery and patterns borrowed from the military uniforms that were once worn by guards and navy officers, create incredibly sensual looks. Ermanno Scervino managed to combine two opposites in the flowing organza, enchanting silk and delicate lace: military motifs have become the strict framework for airy pastels. Ermanno Scervino girl is like from the novels of Jane Austen, who masks strong-willed character behind the external fragility.
