Awash with textural, sculptural elements, Salvatore Ferragamo’s spring/summer 2015 collection promises to add some serious sensuality to your warm-weather wardrobe
An incredible, almost maniacal attention to detail has always been a calling card of Salvatore Ferragamo. But this season’s collection, as divined by Massimiliano Giornetti, takes craftsmanship to staggering new heights. A medley of materials, prints and embellishments culminate in a veritable feast for the senses, yet despite this whimsical mix of three-dimensional texture, the collection maintains an air of restraint, thanks to precise tailoring and crisp, clean lines. This is Ferragamo, after all.
Frocks with long, fluid lines create a flowing, seamless effect, while coats and capes are cinched at the waist with snakeskin belts—a reptilian reference that is reiterated throughout the collection. Although the silhouettes and hemlines are kept somewhat demure, the collection tempts and teases with slivers of skin that evoke an understated sexiness. A glimpse of ankle here, a shot of shoulder there; it’s all very reminiscent of a bygone era, updated with a decidedly modern sensibility.
Inspired by the process of creating Murano glass, the collection’s colour palette incorporates warm neutrals interspersed with bright flecks of shimmer and metallic
