The Salvatore Ferragamo Womenswear Autumun/Winter 2012/2013 reveals a double-edged femininity that revels in a sophisticated play of tailoring and seduction, in an exclusive mosaic of style.
An aesthetic study in linearity takes shape in the impeccable tailoring of asymmetrical,close-fitting jackets and sophisticated pencil dresses worn with knee-high boots. Elegance is a question of detail: the antiqued gold of the signet buttons, the astrakhan skirt is smooth resembling fabric, and hems enlivened by a subtle play of Paisley and braiding. Steppe, steel grey and Baltic blue enhance the chromatic depth of this rigorous season, complimented by fur trimming and total black leather.
For the evening, sartorial construction relaxes into an explosion of femininity. Braiding enriched by touches of lurex and interlinking chains, hand-worked crochet and alluring transparency produce sumptuously textured knitwear. Black is the common thread linking day and night, which ushers in autumnal woodland tones of purple, blueberry, malachite and bordeaux.
In a crescendo of paisley patterns, embroidery and golden glints, fluidly soft chiffon dresses recreate the decorative flavour of a tsarina’s wardrobe.
At her neck, the lustre of Victorian glass cameos set in silk and Swarovski crystals.
