MFW SS17: Salvatore Ferregamo

THIS season Salvatore Ferragamo’s design team delightfully sticks to the house’s stylistic heritage, while allowing for some contemporary experimentation. This came from dainty day dresses decorated with artful handmade floral prints and emboldened by strong shapes working to contour the body effectively through pumped-up sleeve and zoned ruching and wrinkling. Fabric, it would seem, fair game for very modern flair.




This SS17 collection displayed stylings of high-waisted skirts flowering into full-flare, with surprise cuts on the back and titbits like contrasting crocodile patch pockets to add bite. More technical yet no less sensationally sensual cotton dresses find themselves based upon masculine cotton shirts with cutting-edge cutwork designs verging into beautiful broderie anglais, whilst the alternative to the highly-crafted alta moda accents came from deconstructed sweaters held by suspenders, charming equally well.




The colour wheel went from cognac to berry bursts and then military green. These were thematically united and strengthened as tones which typify the trusty luxury maison, who season after season, after season, are able to put out a collection confident in its relatively mass appeal.
