Ferragamo’s designer Massimiliano Giornetti mixed the city street and the tropical outdoors in a collection that seemed young for a brand that’s been in business for nearly 90 years.

Working against a backdrop of palms and tropical greens the creative director sent out models in baseball caps wearing sports-inspired riffs on the traditional suit. Baseball style and other abbreviated jackets were done in pinstripes — some with contrast piping — and were paired with roomy, pleated trousers. More traditional suits were worn over T-shirts, or layered over sweaters accessorized with colorful skinny ties. Colors were of the earth — plum, ochre, cocoa, turquoise and palm leaf green — and came in blocks or stripes on everything from knits to outerwear. Baseball and leather jackets were adorned with cactus and monkey designs on the back — Fifties greaser style — while one sweater was paved with varsity letter patches, in keeping with the youthful spin.
