Fashioned by Love fashion week is here. This time it’s dedicated to the one and only architect of fashion, six-time winner of the prestigious Occhio d'Oro as best Italian designer and the De D'Or as couture designer, Gianfranco Ferre.

There were a few good reasons for me to write about him. I’ve admired the man since I was very young. He was, in fact, one of the few designers I was aware of as a teen, and my very first perfume coincidently was by Gianfranco Ferre - needless to say, just a mention of his name brings back beautiful memories.

Though this week isn't about memories... but the one of a kind fashion designer and the legacy he left behind.

Lets start the journey with the stunning Gianfranco Ferre 1992 campaigns featuring Linda Evangelista photographed by Steven Meisel. I chose them because Ferre's signatures have always been, in my opinion, the architectural approach to design, the opulence of execution and, of course, the white shirt - and these shots are an absolute reflection of them.

  2. I totally agree, this campaign is timeless elegance! Love the trench and the sweater over the white oxford shirt and her slightly disheveled hair in all the pictures.

  3. Fabulous designer! Isn't it amazing how a name, design, or campaign can provoke memories from the past. I can practically remember almost all of the 80's campaigns featuring the SUPERmodels. HaHa When you're growing up, there are certain moments that "shape" who you are. Can't wait to read more of your posts this week. :D PS LOL at using a stock photo! too funny!

  5. I love that first photo, especially the long sleeves and the carefree hairstyle. And there is something about the mood in the third one that I really like.

    PS. Thanks for the link ;-)

  7. Natalia, I love that you wrote about Gianfranco Ferre. I literally stopped and looked at that first photo for the longest time before I even started reading the rest of the post--the styling is just so striking! Wonderful to read more about his life.

  10. Dear Natalia, I'm so happy that you have dedicated the week to such a great fashion designer like Ferre. His creation were so elegant, so sculptura. BTW, you will smile at this, but I thought that the person in the first photo was Claire!
