Iceberg F/W 2015

Back to the roots

Iceberg is a house based on knitwear and in recent seasons the brand’s runway outings have sometimes taken away too much attention from that salient fact. So when the Iceberg house, which belongs to Paolo Gerani, took the decision to forego the runway for a presentation it was a smart move. Generally, this is a sign that things are not so good in a house but it was not this weekend at Iceberg as the tableaux vivants of models worked smoothly. Designer Federico Curradi came up with one of his best collections for the house so far. Long flowing tunics in jersey wool worn over short simple jackets and cargo pants made for a simple but convincing look. All worn with cool wool hats, the models looked like students at an international campus like the Rotterdam architecture school. Furthermore, the flimsy sweaters had great color blocking at the neck and arms. And Curradi even dreamed up a great new accessory – a sweater scarf in Aran style wool that had great distinction.
