Could it be that one of the best Milan shows this season was Gianfranco Ferre's Fall 2012 outing? Yes!
Now in their second season, Stefano Citron and Federico Piaggi built on a relatively successful first collection with a stellar lineup of truly to-die-for coats. The outwear was sometimes belted at the waist, sometimes topped with an oversized collar, sometimes fitted, sometimes sculpted…but it was always gorgeous. Equally impressive were the architecturally sculpted monochrome gowns and the youthful metallic minis, all of which are sure to bring the brand some of that vibrant sophistication it has long been in dire need of.
