Salvatore Ferragamo‘s 2013 Resort collection, designed by Massimiliano Giornetti, was presented the night of June 12th in the magnificent setting of the peristyle Denon at the Louvre: 37 models, including the top Karolina Kurkova, Isabeli Fontana, Bianca Balti, Karmen Pedaru and Marina Lynchuk marched on a 140 meter long walkway in the presence of 500 guests who attended from all over the world.
In search of a summer perennial. In Big Sur, LA, or on an island in the Mediterranean sun, where nature manifests itself in a scenario of rocks overlooking the sea and bushes in the breeze, with the city in the distance: a modern combination of aesthetics and cool eclectic cultural mix.
A woman who has eyes like the clear waters of St. Barth and the radiance of a morning in Eivissa. Sophisticated and independent attitude she blends luxury with a feel for the métissage that belongs to the purest DNA of Salvatore Ferragamo. Wearing a shirt over nappa leather that weaves snake in a marvel of craftsmanship, or a mini dress in pink crocodile skin, ultra flat boots in soft suede with fine embroidery with studs.
The body states itself in a maze of patchwork, threadings and fringes: precious melange of sophisticated patterns with criss cross neckline, an irresistible game of texture.
Fringed leather clothing handmade, ultrasoft leather t-shirts, blouson woven with leather and raffia inspired by the historical shoe archive , but also the art of knotting threads and hand woven straw. Craftsmanship at its purest, an element of distinction for unique and unrepeatable pieces.
The leather is in contact with the skin: a world of undefinable soft neutrals – Desert, Peach, Champagne, New Bisque – mixes a palette of warm soft tones, punctuated by isolated cold touches of Ash and Clay.
The decontractè elegance of a free spirit that superimposes a boyish jacket, worn with the nonchalance of a shirt, a linen t-shirt jersey contoured with leather over floral print archive trousers.
She lives day and night without interruption, wearing a dress in 3D handmade crochet on ultraflat suede sandals, crossed by studs that mimick small pearls. On her arm, soft hobo from unstructured volumes that arise in the wake of extraordinary carefully modeled materials.
A warm and sensorial luxury: crocodile, python and nappa leather with fringes of threadings and unique details such as the Art Deco butterfly in gold and white bone that become the closure or pendant of a precious necklace. Or the clutch built on a unique tessellated mosaic of bone and exotic leathers.
On the whole, jewelry sculptures that replicate textures of materials and processing of leather on metal. Chaînes around her neck that mix silver and napa leather, silver slave bracelets sewn with metal clamps, bright rings where the richness of gold converses in a tight combat with the raw effect of galuchat and the natural opalescence of quartz.
Creator of a sense of exclusivity that is always unique in the interweaving of in designing the interweaving of contemporary and traditional vision, the new world Resort of Salvatore Ferragamo .
