While others embraced the fantasy side of fashion, Citron and Piaggi took a more realistic approach. These are clothes that women of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds will want to wear, even though the bulk of this collection was made up of avant-garde twists on classics. A trench coat gets a neck-hugging oversized lapel, which was appealing because of all of its lovely curves. Fur swing coats, a workman’s jumpsuit in all black, and a simple strapless sheath dress were precision-tailored to the models. The drape and cut of these clothes on the Gianfranco Ferré runway offered a kind of diaphanous wonder to the collection. This will go far toward renewing flagging interest in the brand.
