Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2020 - Runway Review
September 20, 2019
In March of this year, Salvatore Ferragamo proudly unveiled a completely restored Fountain of Neptune, which took two years to complete following a full financial undertaking by the Florentine house. The marble statues that flank the heavenly body of water then, naturally, inspired the Spring 2020 collection, where creative director Paul Andrew liberally applied illustrations and prints. It resulted in a carefree, sunny spirit vibe that resonated throughout, further emphasized with the use of lighter fabrics and breezier materials. Dresses were bubble-skirted and the back was cut away on sweaters and coats to maintain the lightweight feel. In keeping with that spirit, Andrew also resurrected Ferragamo's swim collection.
On the accessories front, the iconic grosgrain bow Vara pump was reimagined into the Viva, with its pointier toe and longer vamp. Paired with ankle-length socks, they completed Andrew's picture of the modern day Ferragamo woman.
