Ermanno Scervino Spring Summer 2017 Man lives in a world that blends sartorial with sportswear.
The season’s star is the jacket – expressed in a sartorial key but created in fabrics that are unexpected and innovative – and mixed with sweatpants. The leitmotif of the collection is the stripe, which has always been a passion of the House.
Single breasted slim-fit jackets in gobelin fabric with a tone on tone floral motif, in shades of light blue, salmon, or multicolour trimmed in chambray denim; or in a techno-crepe or canvas in navy blue and khaki with a touch of embellishment on the lapel embroidered with a summer Astrakhan print revealing the main theme of the collection.
Or more informal versions in double-face cotton, in dark colors or in cotton/linen in sand and navy blue for parkas, bombers and duvet jackets.
These jackets are boldly combined with ultra-light sweatpants with a cachemire texture and crew-necked shirts in pastel colours with striped edging or with overall stripe patterns in black, navy, red, light blue and yellow. Pyjama-suits in printed jacquard with dot patterns create an extremely elegant appeal, with an overall easy elegance that comes when paired with superfine t-shirts with bicolour stripes.
Streetwear suggestions are emphasized by check-motif and maxi ferns printed shirts with chromatic blue, red, and military green accents to wear over impalpably-textured striped knits. Denim shorts complete the look.
For a different look, suede jackets with denim linings or cashmere sweaters with geometric eye pattern offered in many different tonalities, all mixed with sweatpants.
For the Evening
Ensembles in single-breasted, double-breasted and tuxedo jackets in stretch fabric for an ultra-slim fit, in black, navy blue, and for the very first time white, paired with shirts that feature lace panels, intarsia-effect embroidery or simple plastron pattern, sublimating the evening of this contemporary man.
Big bags in natural leather or checkered raffia, slippers in a floral motif gobelin or a polka dot print jacquard, leather, suede and denim moccasins and sneakers enliven the looks. The stripe motif reappears in the belts made in jersey or micro-grommets.
