Ermanno Scervino Autumn (Fall) / Winter 2013

You’d be hard pressed to find mention of Ermanno Scervino’s Pitti Uomo show without finding mention of the venue it was housed in. The impressive interior of Palazzo Vecchio’s 15th century Salone dei Cinquecento made sure of that. It was a perfect choice: the clothes didn’t attempt to compete with the ornateness of the surroundings, instead they were humbled by it, revelling in their own contrastingly cool, clean shapes and elegant details.

Scervino’s men’s fall / winter 2013 collection is classic tailoring softly infused with modern twists, the charm of the early 60s, the visual interest generated by contrasting fabrics and textures. From refined suiting to layered knits, structured wool overcoats to luxe black leather: there’s little here that any style-conscious male wouldn’t wear.

On the runway alongside the new men’s collection was a preview of women’s pre-fall 2013. Here, flirty skirts had a playful vintage sports feel. Embroidered silk slip dresses under cashmere coats perfectly embodied the new and desired spin on 1920s reminiscences. Indeed, a sublime elegance touched every part of it: the tailoring, soft yet structured; the backs on dresses that draped like liquid; the siren red lips and hair that gelled back into soft waves. In any of the looks, Scervino’s woman was as refined and yet relevant as his man.
