Ferragamo’s latest collection offered Jane of the Jungle chic (Tarzan’s single, anyone interested?). It kicked off with jungle prints on deep purples and warm reds, lavishly used on silk cocktail dresses--seemingly held together by a single knots--and jumpsuits paired with silk fire engine red, lapel-less jackets.
A bit of an urban vibe came next (Parisian, maybe?), in the form of a prune leather jacket and a red and purple leopard print halterneck dress. The next looks had a more daytime vibe, consisting of pinstripe red and purple suits worn with an animal (of dubious origin) print silk top and strappy sandals. My personal favorite was a tartan blue suit, wide legged, with a top composed of tied scarves with cheerful, bouncy knots, and a matching, slouchy jacket--which made the lovely Sigrid Agren look straight out of Bergman movie.
That look later received considerable competition from an electric blue suit composed of harem pants and matching jacket, worn with a crocheedt turquoise top (good job Zuzanna Bijoch, you looked fierce--terrifying and terrifyingly elegant--all at once). There was also a crescendo of dresses: raspberry, gold, floor-length, front slits--very 70s James Bond .
Accessories were also key: a suede orange bag, red leather clutch, and rucksack inspired slouchy bag were stand-outs.
One thing is for sure: if we plan on spending the summer tree hopping, we’ll know what to wear.
