One week after Gianfranco Ferré sadly passed away, his final menswear show took to the catwalk in Milan in front of an emotional crowd. A parade of children dressed in white shirts (a Ferré trademark) closed the show to a standing ovation from guests, journalists and buyers.
Ferré’s final collection included distinct variations of his signature white shirt worn underneath pale waistcoats. Tailoring in different shades of blue with touches of red to be worn from day through to night.
