Milan Fashion Week was many things this year. It's Springs were colourful and geometric, and it's Falls were bold and glistening. Gainfranco Ferré's latest Fall/Winter 2012 Collection is a stunning example of the visual impact a simple form can make with a unique shape and a unique texture regardless of the neutrality Fall, this season, seems to have brought with it. The aesthetic is almost otherworldy; big, billowing, layers and layers of fabric accented by tonality, texture, and oily metallics. The navies, the chocolates, the silvers, the whites, and the shining blacks dominant each piece individually, while the cuts are very rigid; some triangular, rectangular, but at the same time flowing in form and cinched at the waist. It is total exaggeration and Ferré does it with chic intelligence. The collection is also styled with such purposeful subtlety; this is what it's all about.
