Ermanno Scervino shows at Milan's fall/winter 2011-2012 fashion week Featured

A stylish collection for the contemporary man
by 19 January 2011

For his fall/winter 2011-2012 men's collection Ermanno Scervino presents a contemporary man, of absolute elegance both in the office and in less formal situations. Sophisticated but moving away from austerity; a man who is capable of using details and accessories to provide light and colour to brighten a working day. A man who dresses comfortably for any situation, with class at all times.

Constant features are a pure white shirt, or a distressed denim shirt, with neutral colour ties. The waist is snugly clad by tailored waistcoats in a variety of colours and patterns. For the evening, velvet jackets with nappa plongé trim, with embroidered waistcoat.

The textiles chosen by the Maison for this season reflect traditional tailoring. They include pié de poule, chevron, Prince of Wales, double face wool, and knit used for some destructured jackets and cardigans. The relief decoration is based on a geometric pattern, and it has been used principally on hand-made knitwear garments.

Scvervino's colours are principally greys and camel, with contrasting shades of blue, black and military green.
