Milan: Film noir is shaping up to be one of the fall season’s key trends, and Ermanno Scervino is yet another designer to embrace the reference. Hitchcock heroines were on his mind when he was creating his current collection. The show started off as a study in heather grey flannel, which was shaped into an alluring double-breasted coatdress and a three-piece pantsuit, among other items. Gathering and asymmetrical draping set these pieces apart. There were boxy skirt-and-sweater ensembles fit for Tippi Hedren and man-tailored coats that would have suited Marlene Dietrich. Fur accessories and embellishments, in addition to a dusting of Swarovski crystals added an opulent touch. Less overtly sexy than most of Scervino’s collections, this offering felt more sophisticated and refined, while still providing the element of seduction that his clients crave. –Joanna Manganaro
