I love it. I don't really know if I can say anymore. So much of it feels "right". The sharpness, the proportions, the colors, the details....

I think this is even better than their previous women's collection.

Finally good to see a designer do sculpted pieces for "real" men. Everything is practically flawless. One of the best so far. I feel like Ferre has been underrated for quite a while though.

This is a very pleasant surprise. I had zero expectations, but it's definitely going to end up in my short list of list of favorite Milanese shows. Very consistent. Although I'm not personally interested in wearing blazers with such constructed shoulders, they work well in the context of the collection. I'm a big fan of the funnel necks and a few of the knits. One of the white coats on the first page is pretty stunning as well.

What a suprise. I gotta admit I've never paid much attention to GF's mens. But this has a definite impact, directional. I like the structured pagoda shoulders, quite aggressive. The knits are strong also. Great job

Tim Blanks was not really that keen on any of this.

Review from mens.style.com

Quote:
January 18, 2009

The tidal wave of buzz that Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi are surfing at Ferré could turn into a curse in a flash. Maybe it just did. Their first men's collection for the label was weighted with a fashion-student self-consciousness that tipped the clothes into concept hell. Architecture and fabric research are major strands of the label's DNA, and Aquilano and Rimondi at least honored the past in those respects. Resolutely broad shoulders created a strong silhouette, and fabrics blended the classic and the futuristic. "We had to take it into the future," said Aquilano, a slightly resigned note in his voice.

But it wasn't actually so much the future as a decadent past that seeped off the catwalk. Although Aquilano insisted their references were sixties shading into seventies, their clothes evoked a sort of Weimar sci-fi. The palette was an expressionist black, white, and silver. The lean, half-belted, peak-shouldered coats slung low over skinny trousers felt like something out of Fritz Lang (and pardon me for imagining Ming the Merciless bossing around minions). The show's other major look featured knits with gigantic mufflers swathing models' heads. Gigantism was always Gianfranco's flaw. Perhaps this was one strand of the designer's DNA that his heirs could have laid aside.
