Fringes, leather, knee high boots, weaving, crocodile and snake skin prints
The Florentine house showcased its 2013 Resort Collection inside the artistic walls of the magestic Louvre in Paris, the first designer ever to showcase a collection in the museum. The catwalk was set in the Denon wing of the Louvre and the Sainte-Anne exhibition of Leonardo Da Vinci, a modern show, reminiscent of native America.
Creative Director Massimiliano Giornetti, chose to revive the link between the brand and Leonardo Da Vinci showcasing Salvatore Ferragamo in art, with a pale theme of very natural colours. The collection confirmed why this collection is called resort, because, you are one with nature, in beautiful surroundings, and this collection was simply that, coupled up with the vision of running off into the sunset on beautiful bike.
The talented designer, used a modern twist paired up with old traditions, with the skilled workmanship in the weaving of the jackets, the fringed skirts, crocodile and snake skin prints, all complemented by natural feel.
Knee high boots in different leather materials, from suede to crocodile, colours were pale, from a faint grey, to a light rose pink and sandy shades of brown. Make-up artist Tom Pecheux used brown and red for the eyes and left the lips pale. The hair was styled with luscious, beautiful waves and textures, a sophisticated woman walking in St. Tropez as described by hairdresser Luigi Murenu.
Massimiliano Giornetti said this about his avenue of inspiration for this collection ...
"A woman whose eyes resemble the crystalline water of St. Barts and the radiance of a morning in Eivissa. Elegant and independent, she has a penchant for luxury and an inherent sense of multifacted style that she shares with Salvatore Ferragamo's purest DNA."
This collection is luxury and richness in a very raw and pure manner.
