At Salvatore Ferragamo the future is drawn as powerfully from elements of a rich tradition as it is from a vision for the world of tomorrow. It is from this positive tension that Paul Andrew and Guillaume Meilland propose a Spring/Summer collection for women and men that conveys innovation and high craft in light, effortless gestures. Color theory, the versatility of leather and an investigation of silhouette carry over from their Fall/Winter debut and work to establish a new lexicon of sophistication that translates unique Italian ideals to a global audience.
The wardrobe evokes the utilitarianism of workwear in contrast with the noble luxury of the finest raw materials and finishings. Bold colors – emerald, Caribbean blue, violet, burnt orange and flame red – punctuate a neutral palette of biscuit, khaki-fatigue, parchment and off-white. A lush botanical print originating from the Ferragamo foulard library is reimagined. A woven motif appears handwoven in leather, in open stitch knitwear and as a print throughout the collection. Linens and organzas juxtaposed with precious skins create a dialogue of substance and levity. Shoes and accessories naturally assume prominence as functional objects in the aesthetic spirit of the house’s formidable archive.
The cast is wonderfully diverse: women and men of varying age and ethnicity, a reflection and celebration of the world as it truly is. The Ferragamo of yesterday and tomorrow, given life by today.
