Designers Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi wanted to mix up notions of what it means to dress when one is young and when one is old. They believe that certain luxuries are always appropriate, and after viewing their F/W 10 collection for Ferrè, it’s clear that these ageless essentials include fur, leather, a well-fitting suit with a contemporary silhouette and classic outerwear, all fashioned in a limited palette of black and white. Suits had a high button stance, with a cropped cut for the jacket and a flared bottom for the pants. Traditional menswear patterns like glen plaids, checks and houndstooths were mixed or matched, not only for outerwear and jackets, but also enlivening shirts and ties. Bulky mélange sweaters had cocoon-like turtlenecks that almost swallowed the models’ heads. In the end, the collection hinted at the way dandies of the future may dress — a mix of bondage-inspired toughness with gentlemanly classics.
