Fab­u­lous Fer­rag­amo

The Ital­ian mai­son has cre­ated an el­e­gant and vi­brant au­tumn/win­ter 2015 women’s col­lec­tion, com­ple­mented by play­ful ac­ces­sories

Hong Kong Tatler - - Salvatore Ferragamo -

Se­duc­tive Ital­ian leather and suede boots in rich shades of cho­co­late, caramel and liquorice con­trast with plat­form san­dals fea­tur­ing fur an­kle straps and sculpted heels to make up Sal­va­tore Fer­rag­amo’s sen­sa­tional col­lec­tion of women’s ac­ces­sories this sea­son.

The de­lec­ta­ble de­signs in­clude an open-toe bootie with arch-shaped heels, a T-strap san­dal with mink up­per, and cone-shaped heels bound in crocodile skin and suede.

Fer­rag­amo’s cre­ative di­rec­tor, Mas­si­m­il­iano Gior­netti, presents this range of fab­u­lous footwear to en­hance the sen­sual fab­rics of the col­lec­tion’s gar­ments, which com­prise sleek sil­hou­ettes in bold colour pal­ettes in­clud­ing rasp­berry, banana and for­est green, pre­sented in block form as well as dra­matic stripes, geo­met­ric and an­i­mal pat­terns.

Fer­rag­amo’s theme this sea­son is stream­lined but with a wow fac­tor. As has been noted, it’s a clas­sic but far from con­ser­va­tive col­lec­tion by Gior­netti, who says he de­signs for real women.

Well known for his min­i­mal­ist ap­proach to fash­ion, the de­signer prom­ises he would never com­pro­mise on qual­ity or fit—that goes for his footwear and ac­ces­sories as well as cloth­ing—and ev­ery item is still made in Italy, such as the con­tem­po­rary take on the Re­nais­sance boot made fa­mous by the mai­son back in the 1930s. This sea­son’s fresh in­ter­pre­ta­tions have been made pos­si­ble by tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tion, su­perla­tive crafts­man­ship and the tal­ent of Gior­netti, who con­tin­ues to cre­ate pieces in­tended to last long into the fu­ture.

This col­lec­tion in­cludes glam­orous em­bel­lish­ments and play­ful ac­ces­sories, fea­tur­ing a plethora of fur and ex­otic skins as well as soft calf leather. They in­clude the shoul­der bags in mink and leather or the charm­ing cross-body bags also made with fur, and striped bucket bags that re­veal flashes of con­trast­ing lin­ing.

Other must-have ac­ces­sories in­clude carré scarves in silk twill, silk jac­quard shawls fea­tur­ing faded glass prints, and lux­u­ri­ously light vel­vet and silk jac­quard stoles. Mod­ern flo­ral lace, ade­voré silk and float­ing silk cash­mere stoles add oomph to the traf­fic-stop­ping gar­ments, while mink col­lars in emer­ald green and pearl grey match the coats and jack­ets.

A se­lec­tion of quirky jew­ellery in­cludes knot­ted bracelets com­bin­ing me­tal, leather and fur, along with match­ing crocodile belts with twisted origami-type fold­ing. Sen­sual mink gloves add a fi­nal, fab­u­lous flour­ish.

Per­fect ac­com­pa­ni­ments The latest col­lec­tion of shoes and bags stand out for their sculp­tural shapes and unique com­bi­na­tions of luxe ma­te­ri­als
