Gianfranco Ferre- Fall 2008

For Spring/Summer 2008 we saw satin trousers and slim fitted jackets dressed with silk rouged blouses at Gianfranco Ferré, which in all respect, did not create any favours for the brand. We see a better collection for fall 2008, than what the belated Gianfranco Ferré team produced before. The show focuses on Ferré signature pieces of strapless little black dresses which showed exquisite craftsmanship. The shirts were not just plain ordinary shirts, but very modern and the style portrayed a sense of architecture with great geometric cuts. The tailoring was much better than last season, but to produce what Ferré did before he died, the creative team have much more work to do. Saying that, their slim fitted trousers, and sweeping A-line coats reminded me of the shapes we saw in the 80s, which is defiantly making a return for fall.
