Salvatore Ferragamo Was Doing This Before It Became Cool

If it wasn’t for the distinctly on-brand footwear, we might have guessed this was a Bottega Veneta collection. All of that sumptuous leather and those seriously elegant Hitchcock-heroine vibes had us instantly flashing back on the halcyon days of Tomas Maier at BV. But Salvatore Ferragamo’s newly-named Creative Director, Paul Andrew, is the man responsible for this sublime collection. Not only were its colorways and fabrications rich, deep, and warm, but so was its brilliant use of leather. As a luxury house known for leather goods, it was a good move on Andrew’s part to represent its heritage by leaning into this signature material.

Out at first were lovely pinstriped looks – easy-to-wear but touched with fashionable drawstring elements and cape accents. A mint coat with emerald leather sleeves was uplifted by a collage of silk prints, and Andrew also introduced leather separates that were as languid as a pair of pajamas. While shapes were bulky, they were well-cut and voluminous without drowning the frame.

This was a nice collection, not terribly revolutionary, but filled with lovely, desirable pieces that fill a gap in Milan’s offerings.

MFW has done inclusive runways really well, and Salvatore Ferragamo’s is no exception. Witness the stunning Kirsty Hume in a thick midnight blue silk look that was so plush you practically had to stop yourself from running up and hugging her  – it looked so inviting. This was a nice collection, not terribly revolutionary, but filled with lovely, desirable pieces that fill a gap in Milan’s offerings.
