Salvatore Ferragamo designer Massimiliano Giornetti showed a sexy, pared-down collection with a subtle sixties vibe for fall 2013.
It was the perfect backdrop for the real focus of the collection: The leather goods. Pointy toe boots with cut-outs and lacing up the back, lacy pointy-toe stilettos (sure to be a hit with Carine Roitfeld, who was sitting front row) and bare t-strap sandals. Purses were ladylike and boxy, or oversized and slouchy, and made with supple crocodile or leather in black, white and navy.
Giornetti also stuck to that minimalist trifecta--black, white or navy--in the clothes palette. The dress silhouette was short and sixties-inspired with many looks being styled with turtlenecks. It was wearable and retail-savvy--though certainly not without its designer thrills. Giornetti showed his prowess in subtle details like a diagonal zipper transversing a ponyskin mini dress, or multiple sheer-overlays and a turtleneck on a sleeveless black dress.
