There is always a complication when one falls in love. I fell in love with the body of work that belongs to Massimiliano Giornetti. It has been about 2 years since I have become a rabid supporter of this designer with both his men’s and women’s collections for Salvatore Ferragamo. As when one falls in love, one opens themselves up to disappointment and that is what I am with this collection. Do not misconstrue disappointment with dislike; they are two very distinct emotions. I am merely disappointed this season!
disappointment here is that I was waiting for something to happen and it
never did, somewhat like a lot of foreplay and then nothing! This
paean to outerwear was exquisite in its breadth and breathtaking in
scale, details and proportion. In particular, the capes were almost
brilliant as they did not appear to be costumey and then there were the
myriad of silhouettes. The collection never erred from its slick,
rakish and laser sharp focus. The expansive use of reversibles and
technologically advanced leathers and fabric was incredible.
