Salvatore Ferragamo Catwalk Fashion Show Milan Womenswear FW2014
Salvatore Ferragamo on Sunday was classic with just the right amount of edge and modernity. Massimiliano Giornetti presented sophisticated, deep colored (bronze, green, orange, purple) looks in rich materials like cashmere, leather and fur with brushed plaid details and leopard spots. To make things more interesting he played with those ingredients, dipping leather pleats in metallic paint and giving fur pieces a leather trim. Multiple variations of the cape, sleeveless coats, high collars, accentuated waists, slick hairdos, perfect little handbags, power sunglasses, high-heel riding boots, tights instead of bare legs and the fact that there was not a pant in sight (just dresses and skirts) made the collection extremely elegant. Giornetti wasn’t trying to hard to do something modern, refreshing or edgy; this was classic luxury at it’s best.
