Ferragamo’s Vital Contribution

Massimiliano Giornetti proved with his most recent Salvatore Ferragamo show that he is right in step with the young Turks of Milan Fashion Week. His sharp yet riotous collection was as exacting in its execution as it was joyful in its use of color. 

This was a bold collection filled with color blocking, outsized patterns and finishing touches that made statements all their own. Merely the daring idea of creating a pinking shear spiky edge on a double-faced cashmere coat or the panels of a scallop-edged skirt was remarkable. Then it was the turn of zippers to take center stage, graphically delineating sections of coats, tops and skirts and, in a racy touch, occasionally being left undone, while the designer’s use of big buttons in contrasting colors to accent the edges of fabric segmentation was one more example of just how important the choice of fastenings can have on the success of a look.

The way Giornetti manipulated his fabrics was also impressive to behold. He gave a new dimensionality to a skirt’s car wash fringe hemline by rounding the fabric back on itself to create a looping effect. A pleated dress became so much more by his decision to create different sections of pleats down the garment and vary their spacing in each segment. Even the way he took a colorful zigzag chevron motif on the torso of a knit shift dress and elegantly moved it into a pleated skirt was gracefully done.

This was a collection filled with invigorating, vivacious designs. Their destiny: to go forth and bring new energy and life into winter wardrobes.
