Gianfranco Ferre RTW Fall Winter 2009-2010

Gianfranco Ferre's men's line is as old as I am. I was born the year it launched. The line has gained a reputation for class and elegance, much like myself. Ferre was known for dynamic constructions and built this pastiche into a formidable luxury line but Ferre for men has not been known as trendy, much less futuristic. When Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi took over as creative heads April of 2008 they decided to stretch the brand in new directions.

They had this to say about the legacy they have inherited:

"We are honoured and happy to carry forward the name of a great brand like Gianfranco Ferré," they said tonight. "[He] has always had mythical status for us. His natural aptitude for the grandiose gesture, his sense of the dramatic, architectonic severity, and his peerless knowledge of materials are now for us a great source of motivation. We would like to be worthy of him." (via Vogue UK)

This is what they said with fabric:

The treatment of knitwear is of course gorgeous and Ferre. But the slender, lithe silhouette is brand new composed of slick trousers in shiny fabric. The designer pair took a big risk, in my opinion it was worth it and worthy of the house name.
