This was Cristina Ortiz’s last collection for Salvatore Ferragamo, and she played it rather safe with mostly wearable separates in a palette of dark neutrals, aubergine, bright yellow and red. Ortiz got a bit creative with volume for exaggerated jodhpurs, full-hipped skirts and dresses that ballooned at the elbow. Although some of the experimentation led to awkward shapes, the luxe materials helped to balance out the collection, and the lightweight coats were particularly successful. A floating textured organza became a sophisticated button-up shirt, and exotic python was used for a pencil skirt. Sheer long-sleeved tops with opaque placed patterns served as a pretty base layer for many looks. With simple pieces and elegant fabrics, Ortiz made a classy exit from the established Italian label.
