Colors, colors, colors! Salvatore Ferragamo’s fall 2016 RTW collection was the least to say, explosive. It was hard looking anywhere else but the clothes, with its broad and bold color choices and abstract designs – the whole show felt like an optical illusion had just come to life.
Although the show started on a serious note, with a black-on-black combo, the show was definitely not short on colors or print. The collection didn’t stray too far from Giornetti’s spring show last year, minus the fact that the play of colors have been taken up a few notches – okay, a lot of notches.
“I like the way in which everything was very geometric, very rigorous, very constructed. They were playful,” Giornetti said backstage.
Geometry seems to be a very large component to fall and we couldn’t help but notice Massimiliano Giornetti looked to the linear graphics of the 1920s and ’30s movements for his most recent collection. The A-line silhouettes were accompanied by a little flair on the waist, the outerwear were joined with zippers and high-necklines. Ankle boots with zigzags and t-strap heels, even the handbags were checkered. Everything was at the least four-dimensional and frankly quite season-less too. It was hard to ignore that, between the turtleneck sweaters and the slinky spaghetti strap dresses; these pieces weren’t all completely fall-friendly. Clearly, Ferragamo has started to focus on meeting his global audience.
