Milan Fashion Week Coverage: Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2014 Collection

The first look that Salvatore Ferragamo designer Massimiliano Giornetti sent down the runway was a perfect indication of what was to come next season: a slightly oversized pinstripe suit worn with a python bra – powerful, yet sexy. Double-breasted suit jackets were cut above the navel and continued as a skirt worn over pants of the same material. Boxy, menswear-inspired pieces, like a moto jacket and a trench, were softened by bra-like tops and the bearing of flesh. Pinstriped suit trousers were paired with incredibly light, almost see-through, midriff-bearing knitted jumpers. Bomber jackets were softened by the use of sheer material, while jackets were de-constructed by crisscrossing details at the back.

An interpretation of the kilt, a new shape for the House of Ferragamo, was presented in a range of fabrics from leather to dry wool, always in an array of neutral tones. In fact, the entire collection was fisnished in a spectrum of whites, olive greens, and beiges. A rare pop of color came in the form of the python bras, jackets, and trenches. Towards the end of the collection, Giornetti explored a few eveningwear options for his patrons, like a silk dress so fine that it seemed to slip off the body or a selection of navy-blue looks perhaps more appropriate for after-hours.

This season, precise tailoring and light fabrics allowed Giornetti to achieve a perfect balance between power and sensuality and present a collection that will bring the sexy back to boardroom dressing.
