GIANFRANCO FERRE S/S 09 - TO DIE FOR!!
If you were not aware, Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi of 6267 are the new designers behind the Gianfranco Ferre brand.
I have to start off by saying, in my opinion, this is the best Ferre collection in many years, if not the best ever. The collection was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!
The use of structure and really fresh and interesting new shapes was so exhilarating! Tommaso and Roberto really know how to design for the modern woman. They kept the true essence and sophistication of Ferre yet gave it the updating that it needed.
Many times, when designers do extremely structured collections, the collection tends to read a bit masculine. This collection really proved that extreme structure and shape could remain quite feminine.
As of now, this is one of the most beautifully designed collections of New York, London and Milan fashion week. Let's see how it holds up to my TREMENDOUS THREE - Dolce, Dior and Vuitton
