Ferragamo creative director Massimiliano Giornet used an opulent ballroom setting, complete with golden chandeliers, to showcase a collection that played with the severe and the soft in equal measure.
Daywear embraced military style; double-breasted greatcoats, tightly belted jackets and masculine slim trousers tucked into flat-soled riding boots were all wonderfully structured in style. For evening, he went for a more fluid look, with loose fitting chiffon, mid-length skirts and off-the-shoulder dresses with lavish gold decoration.
There was a sense of vintage innocence in the more bohemian pieces; lightly woven lace and crochet made black dresses seem lighter, while floral prints, delicate necklaces and rope belts added a feminine feel – very different from the tailored pinstripe suits, tight-fitting blazers and baroque chokers of the more military ensembles. The Ferragamo signatures were still in evidence; fabrics were luxe – such as metallic knits and heavy velvet – resulting in a timeless yet on-trend ladylike style.
