We Travelled To Florence for Ermanno Scervino's White Renaissance Collection
Before his nuptials to Kim Kardashian, Kanye was spotted out and about in Florence with Italian designer Ermanno Scervino and the now Mrs West (for more of her style click through the gallery below) was snapped sporting looks by the designer. But we were still surprised that Kanye returned to his wedding venue a mere month after the big ‘do to help Mr Scervino celebrate his White Renaissance collection as part of Florence’s Pitti – an biannual industry showcase of menswear and women’s pre-collections.

Held in the historic Forte di Belvedere – the seat of the Kimye wedding – the collection of layered white looks was presented with the majestic Florentine skyline providing a peerless backdrop.

The women’s collection consisted of a selection of frothy, fairytale-romantic gowns all in various shades of white. A fine tulle, strapless concoction stood next to another studded with twinkling crystals. Lingerie corsetry was incorporated into gowns to add sauciness to proceedings. Each and every dress looked red carpet – or indeed aisle – ready.

The finale of the presentation involved a line up of both male and female models against the sunset – with a lightshow to round off the show. We then took our seats in the huge dining area, each covered in glorious flower displays. After the meal, the dancefloor opened up with DJ Boy George bringing the house (or more accurately, the castle) down on another beautiful night in fashionland.
