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 .
A parade in a gilded hall of mirrors: the firm footsteps of a woman seemingly rigorous yet sensual with an intense gaze. Her silhouette traced by a double-breasted overcoat of military cloth, leather lining and astrakhan collar.
An aesthetic study in linearity taking shape in the impeccable tailoring of asymmetrical, close-fitting jackets and sophisticated pencil dresses worn with knee-high boots. Elegance is a question of detail: the antiqued gold of the signet buttons, the astrakhan skirt is smooth resembling fabric, and hems enlivened by a subtle play of Paisley and braiding. Steppe, Steel Grey and Baltic Blue enhance the chromatic depth of this rigorous season, complimented by fur trimming and total black leather – almost a uniform.
For the evening, sartorial construction relaxes into an explosion of femininity. As in a fairy tale, the volumes of the overcoats become more generous and the fabrics change. Braiding enriched by touches of lurex and interlinking chains, hand worked crochet and alluring transparency produce sumptuously textured knitwear.
Black is the common thread linking day and night, which ushers in autumnal woodland tones: Purple, Blueberry, Malachite and Bordeaux.
This woman wears flowing skirts inlaid with a seductive patchwork of ribbon and braid, matching them with criss-cross chiffon blouses that bare her shoulders.
Against the skin, the liquid effect of printed velvet illuminates the cape and the draped dress.
In a crescendo of paisley patterns, embroidery and golden glints, fluidly soft chiffon dresses recreate the decorative flavour of a tsarina’s wardrobe.
At her neck, the lustre of Victorian glass cameos set in silk and Swarovski crystals.
Sandals and pumps with braided fastenings bare sensual portions of skin amidst a profusion of luxurious finishing. Embroidered velvet or breathtaking suede heeled boots are trimmed in rich astrakhan trimming.
The bags are small jewels of craftsmanship: from the fluid forms of the small embroidered velvet bags to the clutch evoking Fabergé’s work at the court of the tsars and the enamelled metal minaudière that resembles an antique cigarette case.
This is a double-edged femininity that revels in a sophisticated play of tailoring and seduction, in an exclusive mosaic of style: the new Salvatore Ferragamo collection for women.
When I saw the presentation of “CRYSTAL LOVERS” at the TECHA space in September , during The Milan fashion week, I was dazzled by the beauty and excellence of the limited edition creations between SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS and some of the most important and exciting brands and designers in the global fashion system.
