Milan, Italy – In spite of the cold of Milan, some fashion houses have a way of heating things up. Or at least they seem to make the cold days more bearable for us. At at Salvatore Ferragamo, color and patterns are their weapons of choice for bringing warmth for the Fall/Winter 2016/17 season.
Classic patterns like checks, plaid, chevron and hound’s tooth are the leads in the majority of the pieces. At Ferragamo they make highlights of the checked suits, sporty jackets,of elegant long coats and trousers that taper and that are cut above the ankles. Silk shirts are paired with matching ties and double or single-breasted suits. The majestic coats are finished with collars of fur, velvet or shearling.
To contrast the classics Ferragamo has decided to place modern graphics in popping colors. The house presents them on warm knitwear to brighten up the winter season. The presentation ends with silhouettes in which the patterned fabrics face deconstruction. With this solid pieces form from patchworks.
Scarves are an essentially important detail in the comprehension of the little touches that mean so much. Here they are worn in different ways — knotted underneath the shirt or worn like a bandana. Other accessories include bags, belts, eyewear and Andy Warhol inspired shoes. The colors give the finishing touches with classic neutral and bold reds and yellows. Once all conjugated together, Salvatore Ferragamo presents a collection filled with colors and nuanced warmth.
