Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Practicality that leans more toward smart and interesting, rather than boring, is a definite strong suit of Massimiliano Giornetti. For Milan Fashion Week, the designer turned out a spring/summer 2015 collection that seemed nostalgic for more vintage Ferragamo. Dating back from the late 1930s, the brand’s signature wedge shoe is back in full effect with a modern makeover, along with wearable pieces that felt equally classic and new.
Knits run the gamut in Giornetti’s spring line in the form of sleeveless mock-turtleneck dresses and separates. Hems fall mostly at the ankle on both straight and A-line dresses and flowy, wide-legged trousers. The designer plays with textures here in the form of python prints and sheer layered pieces. Aside from appearances of dark black and pops of burnt orange and jade green, the collection carries mostly monotone palettes of cream and taupe. The Ferragamo woman is one that doesn’t like to fuss with her clothes nor call too much attention to herself, unless it’s garnered in appreciation of serious wardrobe staples and an eye for achievable style.
