Welcome back fragrance lovers. It’s time for another installment of our bi-weekly exploration of the great perfume houses from around the world. This week we’re going take a trip to Italy and find out how Gianfranco Ferre became known as “The Architect of Fashion.”
Fashion designer, Gianfranco Ferre was born in Legano, Italy in 1944 and he died at the height of his career in 2007. He earned an architecture degree at the Politecnico di Milano University in 1969, but he began his fashion career shortly after earning that degree. Ferre began by designing and selling accessories before starting his own fashion line based in Milan, Italy in 1974. From 1989 to 1997 Ferre split is time between his own fashion house in Milan and the Christian Dior fashion house in Paris where he acted as Stylistic Director.
Ferre’s background in architecture shows in the rigid structures and clean lines of his designs. He is most famous for his crisp white shirts and his simple yet elegant subtle detailing. Gianfranco Ferre was known to keep both his life and his fashion simple.
Ferre’s first fragrance, for Women, was released in 1984. The company has since released a plethora of delicious fragrances such as, Ferre Rose Perfume, and Gieffeffe Unisex Perfume.
