Thanks to an impressive background and an original approach to fashion design, the late Gianfranco Ferré firmly established himself on the international marketplace. After starting his career designing accessories and coats, Ferré launched his own business in the 70s and took to the helm of Dior in the 80s. His own collections are more relaxed and pared-down than previous Dior creations, with sophisticated white shirts remaining signature pieces. Gianfranco Ferré shorts are ideal essentials for warmer months. Lightweight fabrics sit flatteringly on the body while lively hues and unique finishes lend themselves to a youthful and feminine appeal.
