Gianfranco Ferré Fall 2010

The thing about being a blogger is that you can go from front row, to 5th row to standing all in one day and we gratefully accept every position we get.

Bryan Boy more known to frequent the front row, but also stands at some shows gave me a valuable advice. “If you are standing, stand by the photographers pit”.

It’s the best piece of advice I’ve been given because not only do you get to take great pictures, but you get to see the models up close and see the stunning details.

I stood by the photographers pit at the Gianfranco Ferre Fall 2010 show, which was one of my favourites of Milan Fashion Week.

Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi presented an amazing collection of mostly black, nudes, gold, tan and beige.

I don’t know why the fashion world doesn’t rave about these two very talented designers.

This was one of their more wearable collections to date, with many sleek tailored pieces which were both understated and timeless.

I felt that the elegant gowns were sign that they are making serious bid for red carpet contention. I loved the black one-sleeved black gown with a gold-braided leather side panel.

Apart from gowns we were also presented with high waisted pants, sweater dresses with leather sleeves, wool coats with furry sleeves (very much a trend in Milan) black leather skirt suits, leather dresses, skirts, woven heels and bags.

Touches of gold were evident though-out the collection.

At the re-see the following day, I couldn’t help for gush over the Look 27, Look 28 and Look 29 which were fully beaded – by hand.

Amazing craftsmanship and attention to detail. I have a new designer crush.

    I really like Aquilano e Rimondi too. Even their own catwalk is been a success ;-)

    “I don’t know why the fashion world doesn’t rave about these two very talented designers.”

    So, so true, I keep wondering myself this for GF and other brands too. Marketing, marketing…
    I loved it!

    I love this collection. It takes me right into the period I love – the 1930s/40s. I can just see Veronica Lake in the last gown (the nude/gold). And the coat with fur sleeves is SO Bette Davis in “Dark Victory”, .

      I love the picture you have painted. Makes me love this collection even more.

    I completely agree with the Tilda Swinton and Kate Hudson suggestions (and the beautiful Veronica Lake), so for my part I’d like to add Angelina Jolie to the list. Not for the red carpet necessarily, but I would love to see her on the streets of Paris in the first look pictured.
