Ermanno Scervino Menswear Fall Winter 2012 Milan

After ten years of soaking up the fashion world like a sponge, since the launch of his own label back in 1999 Ermanno Scervino has continuously impressed his contemporaries with his innovate and free-spirited creations. Menswear Autumn/Winter 2012 was no exception.

Opening the catwalk came a fantastic series of knitwear, including warm, thick and chunky sweaters, high turtlenecks and single buttoned cardigans. The combination of grays and khaki greens with the classic argyle pattern was also a nice touch not to mention the detailed stitching of sweaters that were awash with only a single shade.   

As the show went on the looks smartened up and soft beiges started to appear, perfect for the Autumn months. The tailoring was also immaculate; slim fitting trousers and structured double-breasted coats gave a polished look without being overly formal. A particular favorite were the great velvet lapels found on the collection’s imposing jet-black jackets.

As for accessories, models carried oversized leather weekend bags and thick woolen scarves at times tucked in or left out. To get heads turning, fur and suede footwear was infused amongst its contemporaries - the classical Italian leather shoe. Fortunately the later was also given a revamp thanks to its low ankle cut.
