I'm getting a Haider Ackermann vibe here...

Thanks for posting Morphe.

This is terrible.

I get that they want to evolve from the strong architectural shapes Ferre was famous for, but this is so juvenile. The concepts are there as is the potential-- but the results are horrendously bad-- like 1st-year design student heavy-handedness bad; everything looks unfinished with what looks to be sloppily folded seams--there's no sharpness, and puckering-galour. The styling is desperately trying to be Haider Ackermann-eque poetic, no doubt, particularly with those belts-- but it all looks cluttered like the girls are walking pin-cushions. Yuck.

I actually quite like this.. very wearable, not overdone, just fashionable clothing with subtle edginess.

I agree, I like this too! The colours and fabrics seem nice, eventhough I could have done without some of the belts. Ferre is usually one of the better collections from Milan, but just so underrated. What could they possibly do to gain more recognition?

I agree, the fits and constructions are so bad it's uncomfortable to even look at.

There is pieces that I like, but this is sooooooooo Haider, as Nymphaea mentioned. In some looks it looks like it really belong to Haider collection.

If you look at Gianfranco Ferre's designs for his own label in the 1980s, 1990s and even into the 2000s, you'll see where Haider's drapes, obi-sashes, stiffened collars, quilted bows are inspired by. All the old Ferre signatures are here.

It's true there's quite some Haider Ackermann in this.
I think this collection is magnificent though!
The colours are great and work well together and the cuts are even more exciting.
Ferre evolved to a show that I'm always looking for to.

You know, I agree with you. It looks really messy. The way the fabrics cling onto the body is awful. A downgrade from last season's nice collection.
