Salvatore Ferragamo Fall Winter 2015/2016 collection is about geometry, color blocks and patchworks, as indicated by the carpet on the runway. “this idea of creating a shape with construction that is extremely precise and modern,” said the creative director, Massimiliano Giornetti, who is a minimalist at heart and has access to the most luxurious techniques that Italian craftsmanship can provide.
As a brand with footwear origin, the shoes on the runway are innovatively crafted with a taste for rhythmical abstraction. Made of crocodile, python and ostrich print leather, occasionally mixed with metallic, upper pieces of sandals are overlaid on top of each other creating texture and color contrasts in an elegant way.
The heels, stacked up like a pagoda or a skyscraper layered with little cubes, brought a modern edge and visual interest to the total design.
The layered structure reminded us of a prototype project we have worked on in year 2008. The designer found the inspiration from an armadillo (Yes, Melissa, I’m talking about your design if you are reading this post). The armadillo effect did take us a lot of labor hours to create. No skimping on craftsmanship or money when it comes to luxurious approach for an innovative design.
