The contemporary movement has caught on at the house of Salvatore Ferragamo, with its Autumn/ Winter 2018 Collection, Patchwork of Characters, embracing change and making statements in the most stylishly bespoke of ways. The collection does away with gendering its clothing and focuses on exonerating the glorious multiplicity of the world today in a ‘Ferragaristocracy’. This line is meant to be viewed as a commitment by the fashion house to constantly progress forward as it keeps contemporary culture and its movement thriving.
With classic Ferragamo pieces found in the collection to ground the looks, the Patchwork of Characters is as eclectic as it sounds. From deafeningly loud colours to rich textures, the deformalised silhouettes of the collection remixes traditional designs and outlines with a heavy-handed pour of contemporary creativity for a collection worthy of the Salvatore Ferragamo name. Paul Andrew, the Creative Director of Salvatore Ferragamo, said his unique design was inspired by the dynamicity of the world today. “I want Ferragamo to assert a distinctly special voice. The best way to do that is to be collaborative, inclusive and open – which is why I’m so excited to be working alongside talents like Guillaume (Meilland), Harley (Weir), and this powerful cast of models. Together we’ve found a harmony that truly reflects the bold and positive change that’s afoot at Salvatore Ferragamo.”
The coming of Fall is always marked by the changing of colours, the bright yellow, green and blue of summer gives way for the mustard, browns, and burgundy of the colder months. Celebrate the season by rocking these earthy colours in pieces from Tod’s Fall-Winter 2018 collection.
Showcasing their mastery of leather time and time again, this collection is a story of everyday elegance for the sophisticated woman. The leather house brings back some of their legacy designs like the Thea bag and the Gommino shoes and updates them for the season, both in style and colour shade to equip you for any occasion this season.
Leather biker jackets are paired with burgundy slacks and completed with the Double T shopping tote and suede Mask Boots for that air of understated elegance. Dress up for a look of cosy elegance in an oversized wool jacket and leather pants that are paired with mustard suede Wedge boots, inspired by the silhouette of the classic moccasins, and the iconic Thea bag that transforms into a crossbody at the whim of the wearer.
