Salvatore Ferragamo A/W 2016
Mood board: Easy, breezy but buttoned up with a polished flair, Massimiliano Giornetti’s separates based menswear collection for Ferragamo takes a modern guy from the formal walls of his office to his leisurely off-duty uniform in a snap.
Best in show: Novelty suiting options such as Houndstooth shirts worn with matching pants or Prince of Wales suits worn with pretty printed silk shirts and contrasting pattern knit sweaters elevated the clothes from basic to beautiful. Also noteworthy was the great beefy outerwear - from hefty hooded anoraks to boxy wool or tweed car coats trimmed in fur.
Finishing touches: Let us not forget that Ferragamo has the world’s most glittering legacy in footwear. This season the traditional men’s lace-up shoe was reconfigured in a dancer’s slim sole and lined in sleek fur or splattered with a bit of artist’s paint.
