Since the promotion of Paul Andrew to Creative Director of Womenswear, the house has been under a sort of "construction" with the style and route they want to take. From collections that just were not impressing buyers and the industry as a whole, the Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear collection was definitely a step in the right direction. With Womenswear and Menswear, both showcased within the same show, Paul Andrew and Guillaume Meilland pulled back to the classic roots of menswear. Showcasing many trouser and trench pairings, knee-high boots, fitted leather trousers and blazers, and large tote bags for the office. It was definitely a refreshing sight for sore eyes.
Key Points of Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear
Neutrals: This collection was big on neutral toned colors. From beige, white, navy blue, maroon, black, olive green and dark browns.
Layers: Lots of different layers of coats and jackets. Not the Gucci styled layers, but the "fall crisp breeze" type of layering.
Back to the Basics: Salvatore Ferragamo has taken a step back from crazy designs and showing sustainable and office wear looks.
Patterns: Classic Italian designs, gold tassel and striped knitted sweaters.
Black on Black: The classic staple for any collection. Black on black pant suit set, black trouser and trench and all black velvet dress.
