The creative duo at Gianfranco Ferré, Federico Piaggi and Stefano Citron, sent powerful women down the catwalk. "It is a strong collection for a powerful woman. It is very modern and very sensual", said the two designers backstage right after the show. No extra padded shoulders or masculine inspired suits but a sartorial take on a spring/summer feminine wardrobe illustrated by mono-color graphic inserted or applied leather/ python panels.

Piaggi and Citron were named creative directors at Gianfranco Ferré in 2011 and had previously demonstrated their talent at Byblos and Mila Schön. 

Some styles like the tuxedo have been deconstructed and enriched with python inserts as to create new designs and dynamic shapes. Bare shoulders and open backs added a sensual appeal and balanced the rigid aspects of some cuts.

A black and white geometric print looked quite futuristic and expressed the designers' vision of a powerful woman who owns her dress code. The classic side vent was twisted and appeared on the front and on the back of a long black dress, belted with black leather leaves. Gold-coated belts and natural python enriched black and white outfits.

For the "finale", models were dressed in color-block short dresses with a black back, inspired by fashion photographer Guy Bourdin's bold aesthetic and attraction for plain and dense colors.
