Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2016 - Runway Review
March 1, 2016
Color! Inspired by art movements of the 20s and 30s, Salvatore Ferragamo’s Massimiliano Giornetti presented a fall collection that was not short on hues or print: yellow, sky blue, fuchsia, coral, et cetera, and all the energy and joy they connote. Although the collection opened on a somber note with an black cape and matching trousers, the rest of the show embraced bold hues ranging from magenta to yellow gold to red to green and beyond.
On the Ferragamo runway, zigzag patchwork furs intermingled with color-block knit slip dresses, and suede and lizard skin booties and knee-high styles were joined by furry-heeled T-straps. The unifying factor: a lively palette. The Ferragamo woman wore an A-line silhouette with skirts flared at the hem while outerwear played with zippers and high-necklines Even the accessories featured geometric shapes. A black leather coatdress cinched with a rickrack-trimmed belt provided the eye with a moment of understated relief, as did a graceful red cape with more of that shark tooth trim along the seams.
