In search of eternal summer. Big Sur, the coastline of California, or a small sunny island in the Mediterranean, where nature unfolds into a scenery of wild rocks and cliffs by the sea. The city is nowhere in sight. A modern blend of cool aesthetics with an eclectic cultural mix.
A woman whose eyes resemble the crystalline waters of St. Barts and the radiance of a morning in Eivissa. ELEGANT and independent, she has a penchant for luxury and an inherent sense of multifaceted style that she shares with Salvatore Ferragamo’s purest DNA. Leather on bare skin: an impalpable world of delicate neutral hues - Desert, Peach, Champagne, New Bisque - produces a soft and naturally warm palette combination with cooler tones like Ash and Clay.
A free spirit, she is relaxed yet chic and wears a boyish jacket nonchalantly, like a sweater, on top of a linen jersey T-shirt with leather piping, and trousers with a floral Ferragamo print. She wears an oversized knit that interweaves nappa and snakeskin in a marvel of artisanal skill, or a mini dress made of nude crocodile, and ultra-flat soft suede boots featuring studded embroidery. Her body peeks through a labyrinth of patchwork, lacings and fringes: all irresistible plays of texture, weaves of exquisite melanges and criss-cross necks. Dresses in handcrafted fringed nappa, ultra-soft leather T-shirts, blousons of interwoven leather and raffia inspired not only by iconic shoe-styles from the archives, but also by the art of manual knotting threads and plaiting straw where pure craftsmanship is the defining element. Day into night is seamless, wearing a handmade 3D crochet dress and ultra-flat suede sandals with mini-studs like tiny pearls.
On her arm, she accessorises with a soft, de-structured hobo exquisitely fashioned out of extraordinary materials, such as warm, luxurious crocodile, python or nappa with threaded fringes. The final touch: a gold and white bone Art Déco butterfly worn as a jewel clasp or a necklace pendant or the precious clutch formed by a mosaic of bone tesserae and micro-applications of exotic skins.
On metal, sculptured-jewels mimic the feel of leather finishing. Chaînes wind around her neck mixing silver and nappa; bracelets stacked on her arm are adorned with metal stitches; signet rings are in harmony with the raw effect of GALUCHAT and the natural opalescence of quartzes.
This unique interweaving of modern vision and tradition transmits a sense of exclusivity. Salvatore Ferragamo’s Resort 2013 woman.
