It looks like the English have taken over Italy with the latest in Ermanno Scervino collections, this time the fall/winter 2016-2017 ready-to-wear line-up that appeared on the prestigious Milan Fashion Week runway today. It was a fun combination of looks that we were presented with, in colorful arrays that also included the year’s color buttercup yellow, as well as lots of black, white, dove grey, crimson, shades of pink and more. We especially loved the ones that focused on either the black or the white, but it is hard to pull the eyes away from that sunshine dress that falls in a swish around the ankles, is semitransparent, high necked, long sleeved and belted at the waist for extra detailing, even if it does not cinch it on much. The black ankle strapped sandals underneath only complete the look, while the loose hair falling about the shoulders gives the wearer an image of youthful innocence.
There is also another outfit utilizing the color, though hidden under a sumptuous leopard print coat with yellow and black fur lapels to ward off the cold and keep the shoulders warmest. The yellow trousers worn underneath only add to the appeal, while the high platform velvet boots in black finish off the warm and stylish effect of the combination.
Fury hoods seem to be a thing these days, but they look even better when combined with pantsuits showing off the figure while still keeping you looking particularly chic. Coatdresses also come into play in tweed, worn with a high neck sweater underneath and black tights, high platform heels and hair left loose in natural curls. The added fringe at the ends makes the look more like a dress, as opposed to a really warm jacket or blazer.
There are some pretty awesome dresses included in the Ermanno Scervino fall 2016 collection as well, including the so not for winter piece in chain mail design and glittering gold, thin spaghetti straps barely holding it up and the midi skirts shaping to the body with ease. Another similar dress also includes a brown belt and jacket on top though, ensuring that it is indeed made for the fall months, even if one would never survive winter in that.
Along with the rest, possibly our favorite dress is the lacy piece that reminds us of the 1800s and includes a high Victorian neckline, long sleeves, lacy pockets to put your hands in, pretty seams throughout, and the perfect cut to the hem that is just above the knees. It elongates the body, adds a demure nature to the woman wearing it and looks positively divine. It is certainly a stark contrast to the perfect black pantsuit with the cropped ankles and black sheer blouse underneath consisting of a Victorian collar.
When all is said and done, we love the furry additions to coats and hoods, while the semifinal look that includes the pink hair means that we shall be seeing a comeback in the crazy hair dyes.
