Known for its luxurious outlook catering to an affluent clientele, Ermanno Scervino has been looking to rejuvenate his image in recent seasons by offering more street aware pieces. Judging by the lushness of materials used, he's still very much speaking to his core market, though the shapes kowtowed to today's understated dressing, even for the glitzy set. Evoking the nonchalance of summer - his set and its sweeping arches and floaty curtains evoked waterside grandiose villas - Scervino used quintessentially summery materials such as raffia and panama straw. Clearly on the realistic side, washed denim tone dressed up in decoupage flowers looked handsome, while pushed up sleeves on a white blazer telegraphed Katharine Hepburn nonchalance. The little knit jackets and asymmetric buckle skirts, worn with slouchy sweaters, carried themselves well. A boxy mini-bag with a metal handle looked like a chic take-away package. Sliding towards evening, hems went down and glamor went up with sinuous silhouettes and glittering details. Also, the parka was anything but dressed down. The closest it will ever get to casual is "casual Friday." On the other hand, fur trims, sparkling stones and python were unnecessary ritzy additions.
