Well it was very obvious that the Gucci-collection fw2012 is about romance and decadence. 19th century bohemian men played a major role in this mix of flower prints, velvets, jacquards and tapestry. The designer played with proportions putting big overcoats over chunky crew necks and cardigans over skinny trousers and riding boots. Army and navy-inspirations were also weaved into this collection.
You don’t have to tell designer Massimiliano Giornetti anything about power dressing, he knows what he is doing at Ferragamo. The fall-collection was powerful in all it’s classic, elegant tailoring: suits and coats were strong and sharp, the ingredients soft and often velvet-like. Tweeds, bold herringbone and speckled wools for outerwear, with colored velvet and moiré silks for evening jackets. Footwear stood out, especially the two toned dress shoes.
The colors were a mix of rusts and berry tones often mixing together different shades on looks through to the accessories.
Take a peek backstage at the Salvatore Ferragamo-show, where the models are getting ready for their gig. Hairdressers and make-up artists are working hard to get the job done, and in between models take a little nap. It’s supposed to be a long day today.
