Dreaming of Africa (Salvatore Ferragamo)

Milan…Designer Massimiliano Giornetti has really taken the house of Ferragamo to a new level of innovation and taste his first few seasons. For S/S 10, he was inspired by the colors and textures seen in Africa, a common theme for Milan Fashion Week. By and large, clothes had juicy colors of a once-in-a-lifetime sunset, with burnt orange double-breasted suits and pink knits taking a prominent role. Some earthy neutrals like saffron, cinnamon and coffee usually emerged in the form of pants and a few outerwear pieces to give an interesting level of sophistication to the boldly hued assortment. The opening of the show featured a beautifully draped double-breasted cardigan in orange, far and away one of the best pieces in the show. Even with such bold options when it comes to color combinations, the collection faithfully remains one of the most commercial yet directional options out of the entire week.
