Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2018 - Runway Review
September 23, 2017
Fulvio Rigoni, director for Salvatore Ferragamo's women's ready-to-wear, showcased his spring collection in a garden of daisies in the heart of Milan in front of Palazzo Mezzanotte, the city's stock exchange. With an assortment of textures, prints, shapes and, as he put it, "attitudes," it was a celebration of women's individuality and style as informed by icons like Greta Garbo, Brigitte Bardot and Ferragamo client Marilyn Monroe.
Long floaty dresses, asymmetrical skirts, flared trousers and pencil designs evoked different eras with designs in emerald green, deep purple and geranium pink. Models donned snake skin patterns paired with matching vests or skirts under silk ruffled shirts, laser cut short cocktail coats over high boots, A-line dresses and paneled satin tops and dresses with plunging backs. The looks were paired with peep-toe sandals with gold chunky heels and capri sandals laced up with silk foulards and small leather bags with bracelet-like hands.
