The collection takes cues from the seismic revolution the Hollywood diva ignited in the perception of the
female body. She was liberated, assertive, unabashed, and determined to embrace her femininity with
gusto, never afraid to toy with the masculine side of her personality nor to let her sensuality flow.
Training his master tailor’s hands and challenging his atelier on sculpting the body in a quest for the
perfect silhouette and shape for every body type, the designer embraced Ava Gardner’s iconography with
a contemporary flair, adding currency to her wardrobe.
Undergarments become the focal point of the collection, rooted in subtle sensuality and intimacy.
The pointy bra made famous by Ava Gardner is back in vogue on the Ermanno Scervino catwalk, paraded
on Saturday during Milan Fashion Week.
The house’s craftsmanship and know-how are out in force, best exemplified by strapless minidresses,
done in double wool, lace, and satin. They expose the intricate, soft and comfortable, structured and
flattering, inner bra constructions required to exalt and shape the glorious female body.
