Throughout his career Gianfranco Ferre was dubbed by journalists as 'The Architect of Fashion'. He described his collections during the late 70s and 80s as 'a mix of the romantically diffused and the precisely focused'. Ferre offered an 'uncontaminated' way of dressing that celebrated the notion of the Italian Good Life. Today, the house of Ferre remains, and the late designer's codes are not only respected, but celebrated. Hark back to an era of Italian, well-heeled minimalism with Gianfranco Ferre shoulder bags.
