Gianfranco Ferré Fall/Winter 2010 RTW

Development was obvious for Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi for their fall 2010 collection for the house of Gianfranco Ferré in Milan.

In a collection where every look was a stand-out, it was extremely hard for me to choose the best while going through on In the past the designer duo tended to go for heavy embroideries and complicated constructions, but they seem to have finally gotten the memo that subtlety goes a long way: a precisely cut gray tweed suit came with a leather panel down the front of both the jacket and the skirt, while a gorgeous camel alpaca coat had sharp, contrasting lapels.

The duo described the collection as "decorated minimalism", and really, that couldn't have been more apt- clean lines and precise cuts were contrasted with strict grey tweed and camelhair suiting, waists cinched with wide obi-style belts, necks strangled and arms shackled with heavy fur.

Ferré has always been synonymous with impressive workmanship, and, this season, leather dresses and skirts boasted intricate lattice weaves; while for cocktail and evening, the designers eased up on the stiff architecture to focus on more sinuous and womanly shapes.
