One of the legacies of Salvatore Ferragamo is the experimentation with treatments on fabrics and leathers creating interesting, and beautiful surface textures and dimensions.
The Salvatore Ferragamo fall 2014 collection lead by Massimiliano Giornetti felt like it synced up with the heritage of the house while having all the elements needed to be viable on today’s fashionable streets.
Metallic sprays on supple, drapey leathers and knitwear created shimmery reliefs.
Shimmery yarns of black and copper were twisted, tucked and draped for dresses with subtle dimension.
Giant capes in structural wool blends trimmed with leathers and printed with oversized brick colored animal spots created dramatic outerwear like the headline look worn by Irina.
The fabric treatments continued with the needle punched jacquards shot with accents of brick red.
The color palette with the fur mixing using a bronzy olive, pumpkin orange and shades of browns created an inviting spectrum for fall with jackets that you wanted to see up close.
Did you notice that there were no pants in the collection? In contrast to spring, the look is fueled by dresses and skirts, not a pant in sight! The heritage blanket like cape was the true statement of this collection.
The use of quiet colors, and classic patterns remixed into oversized statement making looks, created an understated, yet statement making collection for Salvatore Ferragamo fall 2014.
