Milan has been in a particularly sporty mood this season, and Ferragamo has jumped right onto the pitch, the court, and the track with its fellow Italian brands.
Creative director Massimiliano Giornetti worked a palette of mustard, burnt orange, light blue, tomato and olive into cool summer suits worn with white shorts, or trousers and jackets in a textured, gently puckered cotton. He took the numbers 1 and 4, inflated them, and placed them on stiff cotton sleeveless shirts and tunic tops, tanks, and knits.
There was a quilting motif at work, too, for white leather jackets, and as a pattern on short plastic coats or cotton shirts. For outerwear, Giornetti played with volume, sending out sculpted raincoats with drawstring waists and roomy baseball jackets with a spongy finish.
This collection was perfectly polished, but it’s unclear whether all those sports and street references will appeal to the Ferragamo customer, who may be more in the mood for luxury separates, without all the edge.
