Ermanno Scervino’s neon-lit Winter Wonderland of handsome gentlemen kicked off with re-editions of the 300-year-old Rob Roy Mac Gregor Tartan. It is mostly used in Canadian style lumberjack concepts, yet for Scervino the classic crimson red made room for soft grey and ice blue tones. Used in trousers, long overcoats, ties and shirts this plaid evoked a very chic, masculine, almost arctic feeling. The color pallette was further enriched by black and cobalt blue for the rest of the show where luxurious cashmere coats, leather jackets, goose down anoraks and fur lined sports coats were all casually worn over tight fitting classic trousers and more often than not completed with decadent chin high turtlenecks. Many sweaters also sported a high ship-ahoy factor while many identical capes in different materials made for a grand finale. Scervino’s classic tailoring for sumptuous evening wear along with his preppy sporty outfits will make for a complete wardrobe in any affluent customer’s monogrammed travelling trunk. Whether this client would chose the quiet peace of Lake Placid’s plaid filled ‘The Point’ or the jet setting slopes of St. Moritz and Gstaad, he will look dashing all the way. Now all we need to do, is wait for snow!
