In a collective runway, Paul Andrew and Guillaume Meilland – Creative Directors of Womenswear and Menswear, respectively – presented the SS19 proposal for Salvatore Ferragamo in a collection that evokes the rich craft traditions of the firm, conveying this inspiration to the innovation of the delivery in relaxed and delicate garments.
The importance and versatility of the skin, as well as the exploration of new silhouettes and cuts, were the protagonists within the collection; premises that were used to translate the sophistication of the Italian heritage into a universal language for modern man. This exercise was reflected in the utilitarianism of work clothes: reinterpreting and elevating these key pieces to a luxury version with premium materials and fine finishes. Shades like burnt orange, fire red, a wide palette of nude and khaki colors were printed on delicate linen and gabardine garments to match leather pieces to create a harmony of textures and movement.
Among the items that stood out most on the male side are the summer coats in nude and vibrant blue, leather pants, mesh and linen shirts, some pieces of poplin and woven polo shirts.
The main role took place in the shoes: high boots, sandals and dessert boots, the latter, made of leather and hand-woven by Ferragamo artisans who dedicate an approximate of 16 hours of craft work weaving 330 meters of nappa leather to obtain As a result, only one pair of this footwear from the signature.
This precision and traditional richness, both in archives and classic proposals, was sealed in a collection rich in colors for contemporary man and unpretentious silhouettes that invite the gentleman to a new stylistic experience where comfort, elegance and luxury coexist in a single garment.
