Chic and precise describe best Salvatore Ferragamo’s fall 2013 collection revealed at Milan Fashion Week over the weekend as the brand’s Creative Director, Massimiliano Giornetti, chose to play with simplistic details that fuse to reveal a totally modern and wearable collection, perfect for the contemporary Ferragamo girl.
While most fashion designers featuring their latest creations at Milan Fashion Week but not only, chose to take their cue from past trends, from vintage classic patterns, Salvatore Ferragamo decided to focus his attention predominantly on the present and the future and create a collection that translates into real ensembles suitable for the modern woman. However, a few of his designs did seem to display a certain 60s chicness viewed through the eyes of a modernist, meaning the lines were subtle and didn’t seem like the garments were torn straight out of a vintage magazine!
The collection placed a heavy accent on outerwear, particularly on coats as the coat has become the ultimate garment in a woman’s wardrobe and thankfully the lines of the coats featured in Salvatore Ferragamo’s fall 2013 collection are precise and reveal shapes that flatter most body types. While A-lines were almost nonexistent in the lineup, straight cuts dominated as far as coat designs went, however the designer did think of the honeys that are not flattered by these precise lines and introduced cordons in some of his designs to enable women to accentuate their waistline.
Next in line when it comes to must have fashion pieces are the skirt and the almighty dress and thankfully there were numerous designs put on display in Salvatore Ferragamo’s fall 2013 Milan Fashion Week collection, designs that enable fashionistas to amp-up sexiness through the most flattering cuts. Draping details and soft asymmetric cuts were the elements that added a bit of ‘je ne sais quoi’ to the otherwise simplistic looking designs, so if you’re all about wearable-chicness make sure you expose those gazelle-like legs with a Feragamo inspired dresses or skirts.
Now, for the comfort oriented divas or the business-chic ladies, Mr. Giornetti created a stylish pair of high waist-narrow ankle trousers featured in the most exquisite fabric, trousers that presented a subtle slit on the side of the ankles, cut which aimed to provide more comfort for the wearer all while adding a twist to the design.
Chic, architectural-modern and quite somber as far as the color palette went (only gray, white, navy and black shades were used), Salvatore Ferragamo’s fall 2013 collection is definitely worth your attention if you’re seeking to polish your style to perfection in time for the new season, so browse through the highlights of the lineup and see if this is the path to style you feel defines you!
