Gianfranco Ferre, 1985

Ferre’s F/W 1985 campaign photographed by Herb Ritts.

In his way, Gianfranco Ferre offers the same variety of choices. His clothes are the sleekest, most sophisticated of all those shown here. The leitmotif is the high-rise waistline, on both skirts and trousers. While that serves as a unifying theme, other aspects of the clothes are constantly changing. Gray pants are topped by fuchsia, red and mallard blue coats. Long jacket suits with short skirts are paired with long silk poplin coats lined with black Mongolian lamb and quilted panels. Black leather jackets curve into the waistline, and ribbed cashmere tops are a cross between stole and sweater. The designer considers gray his newest neutral color but counters it with a lot of strong, clear shades. His finale consists of simple long black jersey dresses accessorized with brilliantly colored scarves and huge jeweled necklaces. The dresses are smashing.
