Ermanno Scervino Fall Winter 2013 Womenswear Collection

Ermanno Scervino presented the fall winter 2013 collection this morning in Palazzo Serbelloni’s garden during Milan fashion week. The main colors he used were gray, mauve, white, black, blue and bordeaux. Scervino is worldwide known for the precious materials he used, such as pure silk, swarovski embroidery and fur. In his last collection he confirms the elements that have made him famous. When I saw the first look of the runway I immediately thought to Sarajevo in the war’s time. Maybe because the model was wearing a little fur as a foulard on her head in a very old fashioned way. But now it is already actual and fashionable! How designers can change things in such an easy way.I think that this theme remains also in some other collections of famous brands, but lets the fashion weeks end and I’ll let you know all. With fur he also made some stoles used as scarf. We could say that Scevino wanted to protect his women from cold of the hard journeys on a van, trying to escape from enemy soldiers and reach an ally country. Another trend he followed was the animal print such as the leopard, also proposed by Versace.

He also inserted some double-breasted coats and jackets made up in angora and flannel and he followed one of the main checked trends for the next winter, that is to say transparencies, using black and dark gray organza in geometric patterns.

The shoes reminded me of Galliano’s style, but the evening gown were exquisite, as always. Good collection, but, as concerning the other collection presented till now, I found nothing special.

Prada Spring Summer 2013 Womenswear Campaign

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Prada has now an adv campaign for the next season by Steven Meisel. When I first watched the fashion show last september I thought it was a joke by the funny Miuccia Prada. Unfortunately it wasn’t. This collection, as many others for the next season, underlines the lack of creativity of the fashion houses in this precise moment. Prada created mere little black dresses with disgusting floral patterns that seems to be painted by a mentally disturbed child. Shoes are hard to watch.

The extreme oriental inspiration is obvious. But so many designers in the past offered a restyling of the old geisha style and the traditional chinese and japanese garments, for example Yohji Yamamoto, but also the british Alexander Mcqueen, that Prada collection appears banal and foregone. Maybe Mrs Miuccia tought that if she inserted some fur in the hot season, her collection would be irreverent and extravagant and so she could stupefy the audience. Poor her. In the collection out of the runway she inserted terrible pointy shoes that obviously remind to the most successful Dior’s ones.

Hope the next season will be great, colorful and inspired.
