Gianfranco Ferré

Autumn-Winter 2010/11 - This collection showed decadence and architectural shaping. The long drapery of the fabrics, including that of the trousers makes the models seem like skyscrapers. They used prints such as hounds tooth and grey and white checks and showed leather trousers and capes, gloves and strappy boots. Their furs were oversized and swaddling. Most of the collars looked like support systems for the neck, in a cosy structure. The layering and thick padding in some of the coats were like building a shelter for an arctic winter. The juxtaposition of the warmth this conjured and the clean lines of the structure made this a perfect solution for a winter wardrobe.
