This ultrasophisticated Salvatore Ferragamo collection was aimed squarely at the city dweller — rather than his seaside counterpart — and steered clear of summer wardrobe clichés.
Creative director Massimiliano Giornetti worked a color palette that included petrol, cinnamon, burgundy, and mellow yellow into soft and subtly patterned tailoring, textured knitwear and edgy footwear. He put a focus on outerwear, especially long, fluid coats so lightweight they were almost transparent. Some had hoods, while others were worn with rolled-up cuffs lined with a jaunty giraffe print.
Suits had a sporty, workwear feel with zip-front or belted, safarilike jackets, while trousers were loose-fitting and cuffed. Giornetti also made a powerful statement with knitwear, turning out sweaters with open V-neck collars or magnified waffle textures, while footwear had a utilitarian feel, with thick soles and fringes. This collection was not for every man, but the Ferragamo man will no doubt cut quite a figure on the asphalt beaches of Milan or Manhattan.
