Salvatore Ferragamo Spring/Summer 2017

by Paige Reddinger

Fulvio Rigoni, the head of design for womenswear, led Salvatore Ferragamo’s collection design this season after the departure of Massimiliano Giornetti. He played it safe, and perhaps that’s what the Ferragamos wanted. Tod’s, another Italian luxury company whose bread and butter, much like Ferragamo’s, is its leather goods accessories, also saw the departure of its creative director and pared back the collection to, seemingly, focus on the brand’s DNA—shoes and bags, not ready-to-wear. Whether or not that’s the intention, the clothing was nothing groundbreaking. There were pretty floral dresses, sensible skirts, and a chic vest dress, for example, that will work well for many an occasion but not stand out in a crowd. The laser-cut leather pieces added a little something extra and Ferragamo fans are sure to love that snakeskin trench, but there wasn’t much in terms of brand identity.
