The setting alone was amazing. Ermanno Scervino’s fashion show was presented in the Prestigious Military School Teuliè, a prestigious military school of the Italian Army, one of the oldest, founded in 1802 by Napoleone Bonaparte. It is one of the two most important military school with the Nunziatella.
On this day, however, rather than a marching army, the audience witnessed models walking the catwalk, a straight aisle that was lighted up by a oversized marquee trumpeting the name of the designer and the Collection.
Elegance rather than military Style was on display. Scervino’s collection is contemporary elegance with clean lines but in a gothic style. Feminine and masculine intersected, with style.
Lines are clean but in the gothic style. In the hyper-feminine dresses, the waistline was highlighted. The Garments were lingerie inspired with multi-colored fur finishing on collars and lapels. Patterns were art nouveau and floral. Dominate colors: black, shades of grey, touches of yellow, and bordeaux, with flashes of metallic tones.
Those planning to vacation in an exclusive ski resort, whether in the Italian alps or in Colorado, would do well to pack Scervino’s fashions for those evening parties, and outerwear by Tatras and Duvetica for daytime on the slopes.
Tatras specializes in outerwear garments that combine Japanese design with high quality Italian fabrics. The quality can be seen and felt, from the execution of small details to the luxurious fell of each garment. Tatras’ fall-winter collection 2017 features jackets that are both feminine and comfortable.
Lines are slim with less volume, the waist is highlighted and recalls the aesthetic of bustier and corsets. The cocoon fit imitates the Japanese kimono. In fact, the garments are made with the Nishijini fabric produced in the province of Kyoto, the same fabric used for the emperor’s kimonos.
While the fabrics are wool and cashmere, they are combined with technical fingers that add strength. Women will find a wide choice: coats , down jackets, and trench coats, that with a silk effect, can be either matt or shiny. Down jackets and outerwear are filled with 90 percent goose down for warmth, and 10 percent goose feathers to add structure to the garments.
One more detail give a sense of unicity to this collection: four garments are unisex and they were born from the collaboration with London designer Kevin James Morley.
While these garments will not be available online, they will be distributed to retailers in the U.S. This is a brand to keep in the radar.
High performance materials meet Italian contemporary design in the outerwear from Duvetica. This brand combines a high-tech spirit with super feminine cuts, such as the egg-shaped, flared, and slim fit silhouettes. Items are designed and crafted with sartorial care and know how.
The master piece in the collection is a permanent model: the Duvetica full-zip jacket that comes in a highly recognizable design available in a variety of weights, structures, fabrics, and sharkskin and pied-de-poule effect prints. The Cyber is a nylon version with anti-splash treatment, monochrome metallic finish and is available in different lengths.
Duvetica color palette is unique, including the 24 used for the year-round nylon items. This year’s collection has a clear identity of colors: blue, beige, charcoal grey, black , kaki, tobacco and a variety of greens.
Duvetica is perfect for the sporty woman looking for casual outwear with great style.
