Scan the show notes for Massimiliano Giornetti's Fall 2013 Salvatore Ferragamo collection, and you'll notice a lot of similar words and phrases: "simplicity," "neatness," "severity," "lightness" are all there, and so is "the elimination of the unnecessary."
The Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2013 collection struck a mod-meets-minimalist chord, pairing shiny patent double-breasted peacoats with turtleneck dresses, and cropped jackets with A-line skirts. Consider it a turn to retro styling juxtaposed against pared-down silhouettes. To fully harness this vibe, Creative Director Massimiliano Giornetti sent out sleek pieces — mostly in navy blues, blacks, and slate grays — only letting the crispest shade of white punctuate the dark lineup. While there were quite a few "deconstructed" minidresses to (once again) redefine the standard LBD, it was the expertly tailored (and very luxurious) outerwear that held our attention. As for the label's iconic leather goods? There were plenty: all of them, cooler than the one before. Between the croc-printed bags and the knee-high cutout pointy-toe boots — which, from the back, provided all the lace-up sex appeal in one parting glance — Ferragamo Fall '13 proved jam-packed with accessories and clothing worth coveting.
