MILAN, Italy — A different approach to styling would also be of great service to Ermanno Scervino, one of the proudest heralds of true Italian craft. His shows are too predictably ladylike. While others take pride in being artisanal, only to create dull renditions of couture pieces, Scervino has industrialised his atelier to great effect. The quality of his productions are unsurpassed.

His collections, like the one shown today, are filled with beautiful tailoring and voluptuous dresses with a lingerie quality. This season there were strong military nods, but for the rest it was ladylike business as usual. Seeing the Scervino woman become a touch more wild would be a thrill.
