Dignified and almost spectrally light, the spring/summer 2015 collection from Ferragamo turned summer into a majestic, urban affair. Avoiding clichéd palettes and overdone patterns, creative director Massimiliano Giornetti targeted the city dweller, achieving a precision and a fluidity that transcends seasons.
Giornetti sent out double-pleated trousers and shorts, soft blousons, overcoats and jackets, all of which were elegant and timeless. Despite its timelessness, the collection was not obvious. Textured designs in ultra-light wools looked fresh as luxurious overcoats flowed around them. For a touch of levity, Giornetti lined these more sober garments with a whimsical giraffe print.
The palette was kept to various shades of beige, plum, pewter, linen, icy blue, and rust. Crafted with an expert Italian eye for tailoring, the pieces express a somber dynamism.
In accessories, Ferragamo chose to reinterpret the classics; fringed shoes and waxed weekender bags bespeak a sentimental, noble utility, perfect for sauntering around the city on a shady day.
