Milan men's Fall 2016 Salvatore Ferragamo



One more time, this is a collection that needs no explanation as it stands by itself as a testament to designers who design and do so in the most fluid way. The collection by Massimiliano Giornetti for Salvatore Ferragamo reminds me that this man knows his way around tailoring as it reminds me of a collection he once did with inspiration from the French Riviera/Saint Tropez.

Tailoring is the star attraction as well as is his affection for all types of fabrications and patterns certainly demonstrated in shirts and sweaters. There is a somewhat 70s vibe with the conversational prints and the classic hound’s-tooth and glen plaid that are done up to maximum affect without a touch of a dated feeling. Giornetti has always been partial to outerwear and this season is no different, from reefers to parkas to bombers and motorcycle jackets, they all make an appearance in an assortment of colors and fabrications. This collection offers up a new facet of the designer and that is his sense of humor.

If one had to find some fault with the collection it would have been the high water pant lengths and the almost exclusively slim silhouette that pervaded the collection. While on the deficit side, we could speak to the “young” casting which surely was not the wisest for the collection as some more mature looking men would have greatly benefitted the visual presentation.
