The look above was atypical of the Ferragamo SS18 show, which in the main was inspired by the Italian Riviera and life at the seaside. That meant light and deconstructed silhouettes in earth tones, ivory, gentle pinks and light blues. For dinner in the evening, the selection of British checks in sartorial fabrics were used in fluid, unlined jackets, shorts and suits, bridging casual to formal.
“Fluidity, freshness and colour” was how how artistic artistic Director Alessandro Sartori described his SS18 collection. Sports-inspired wear saw classic shirts replaced by deconstructed tops in various volumes, doubled tank tops, scoop neck sweaters, and active yet tailored trousers and joggers. The palette featured natural shades of walnut, signature Vicuna, geranium, freesia, lotus, and bleached aqua, with optical whites set against unexpected colour flashes.
