The new Salvatore Ferragamo collection, shown as part of Milan Fashion Week on Saturday, February 27th, is an original take on the fashion of today by the house's creative director Paul Andrew. The collection is inspired by images from sci-fi films. The collection is called "Positive Future" and modernizes the uniform of the 21st century - business, military, evening, sports - discarding everything that is old-fashioned.
“The goal was to create a collection that sees the present through the lens of the future - opening up many new perspectives,” says Paul Andrew. - The sci-fi classics of the end of the last century "Gattaca", "When the end of the world" and "The Matrix" were cinematic influences - past ideas about the future that have formed today. For this Positive Future collection, I presented the standard silhouettes of today's uniforms as fossilized remnants of a long forgotten past, freed from all associations of class, color, or creed. This collection offers a new form for a utopian future where diversity and positivity combine to transform our world for the better. "
The ready-to-wear collection presents looks mixed and ordered with styles from military, moto, athletics. For both women and men, shirts, mohair textures, shoes and accessories are combined and complementary. Wardrobe items are presented in monochrome, the original image is formed through bright contrasting color combinations.
The collection's key footwear models are biker boots, sock sneakers, and rubberized nappa clogs. Not without the iconic Ferragamo F-heel, in the models of pointed-toed women's shoes, which this time sparkles with rhinestones and galvanized trim.
The range of accessories includes Nano-Trifolio bags in rubberized nappa and Studio in a new design. The men's travel bag is presented in futuristic leather with Gancini embossing.
