Spring/Summer 2011 men's collection from Gianfranco Ferré
Jun '10
Imbuing the new Gianfranco Ferré collection is a scent of the Orient. A sensual quality, smooth manner, where elegant luxury has an easy recherché slant, reflects a calm distinctive attitude through the simplicity of colors, lightness of constructions, excellence of cuts and details in the tradition of fine Italian tailoring.

The man is authentic, unique, real. His wardrobe is multifarious, crossover mode, rich in references, yet with an exclusive basic feel to meet the needs of an easy urban style that rediscovers the essence of comfort and pure sophistication in the great outdoors, somewhere between Indian sensations and safari moods.

The palette is about warm natural hues, from golden beige to dove, powder green to sand khaki, all the way to ethereal sky blue and to an intense dark lapislazzuli.

High-tech linen, silk and cotton fabrics, ultracool and airy light, give definition to perfect body-skimming shapes.

Signature Ferré stripes recur throughout the collection – marking fabrics, imprinting piping on collars, sleeves and lapels, or adding a special touch to high waists.

The double-breasted suit alternates between precise expressions of classic men's tailoring and the easiest of fresh revisitations, as in the dressing jacket. Pinstripe patterns, both in jacquard form and on rough-hewn cottons, identify superlight jackets for everyday, to sport with pants in a range of soft and slim fits.

Shorts are absolutely versatile, make for a quick silhouette also in the season's city suits.
Shirts are loose fitting, often collarless, with T sleeves. Intricate embroidery becomes an integral part of the fabric texture or the tie-dye treatment.

Loose-openwork sweaters in silk/linen blends and other superfine yarns make a quasi decorative statement under shirts and jackets.

For evening, the new tuxedo comes in shantung – black, white, dove, navy – all chromatic inflections underscoring the principle of relaxed elegance.

Accessories feature a pure minimal design. The bag rethinks the classic briefcase in a superb selection of materials: chamois suede, luxurious alligator and faux-print hand braided leather in shades of brown and dove. Then to match there's the latest in a shoe, a moccasin-slipper with round elongated toe, equally fine for day and evening.
