Luxury house SALVATORE FERRAGAMO presented their Fall Winter 2022.23 Collection, that reconstructs the codes of casulwear and reimagines them with a spirit of liberated precision and fluid expression, on February 26th, at the neoclassical Sala delle Cariatidi of Palazzo Reale, during the ongoing Milan Fashion Week. Designer Guillaume Meilland created a collection that shows that casual wear can be made and worn with as much care, discernment, craft and irony as any evening gown or tuxedo. The womenswear collection feature dramatic ruffles, expressed in versatile knit, and it unconventionally reinterprets a traditional evening wear shape. With menswear collection, Salvatore Ferragamo explores fresh attitudes and contemporary character.
“In Menswear the skeleton of a formal silhouette is retained but unnecessary complexity pared back in softly constructed jackets with inserted gilets. Gancini quilted olive parkas, pullovers and sweatshirts in sustainable nylon integrate the codes of Ferragamo in material substance of technical garments. Both genders access upgraded athleisure via camel hair wool sweatpants, cardigans and sweaters delivered with artisanal detailing. And both genders access an ironic and eye-opening playfulness focused on scale and proportion, in which wide-aperture exaggerated striping and unorthodox patching combine to replace the “smartness” of formality with the irony and intelligence of ‘informality’.
Ferragamo refashions its icons to amplify a casual classicism. The Ferragamo Studio bag is presented in new sizes and materials including blown-up crocodile effect pressed relief, warping the onlooker’s sense of scale. A soft bucket bag is added to the line, featuring the signature Gancini closure and a studded base. It is fashioned of grainy calf in the season’s range of Italianate colors: Ghiacciaio Blue, Nebbia Green, Agrifoglio Blue, Rafia, Aghi Green, and Amaretti Pink. Woven cuoio and cord versions demonstrate the craft and know-how that is at Ferragamo’s core. A new bag design comes in a half-moon shape with a selleria finish: this features the substantial leather-clad chain which also serves as a jewelry accent across the collection.” – from Salvatore Ferragamo
